I know some of y'all are peek fans so here is an article for you

CLEVELAND When Antwan Peek speaks of being back home, he isn't talking about Ohio, although he's a Cincinnati native (Woodward High School) who attended the University of Cincinnati.

He's talking about playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, which he is doing again since joining the Cleveland Browns in free agency. With Willie McGinest recovering from back surgery, he'll start tonight's preseason opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
"I'm just looking forward to taking his place and helping this team win until he gets back," Peek said. "I hope he'll be back soon. We need him."

In 2005 with the Houston Texans, Peek played outside linebacker in a 3-4 and had six sacks. He was mainly a backup defensive end last season when the defensive scheme changed.

"In the 3-4, you're standing up and you can see everything coming," Peek said. "When you're playing down, you've kind of got to play it as it comes. This is lot more comfortable. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do."

Sucks we couldn't fit him into what we were doing here. I liked his fire. Hope the best for him except when he plays us.
