The Las Vegas Raiders are bringing back a familiar face to strength its defense.
On Tuesday, the team announced they’ve re-signed defensive tackle Kyle Peko. In eight games with the Silver & Black last season, Peko recorded 11 tackles and one pass defended.
Since being drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2016, Kyle Peko has recorded 34 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble. He’s also played for the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans.
