Chiefs Expected To Trade CB Marcus Peters To Rams

Adjust Comment Print

The Kansas City Chiefs are trading Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams for what is expected to be a package of draft picks, according to published reports.

The details have yet to be released, but according to Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs will be receiving a bundle of draft picks in return.

ESPN.com first reported the trade, which will not become official until the start of the new league year on March 14. During his time with the Chiefs, Peters made 151 total tackles and had 19 interceptions. With Peters being traded, does it solidify the fact that Johnson will hit Free Agency? According to media scuttlebutt, the Chiefs had grown exhausted of Peters's proclivity for generating headlines for reasons other than his talent on the football field. Peters earned a one-game suspension from Chiefs head coach Andy Reid last season.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters (22) acknowledges the crowd before their National Football League game against the Oakland Raiders at O.co Coliseum in Oakland, Calif, on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015.

The Rams will hope Peters has a better grasp on those emotions going forward, as he's emerged as a truly elite cornerback. And although Davis left the Bay Area without a deal after meeting with Oakland and the 49ers, there are several other free agent cornerbacks for the Raiders to consider in 2018, namely former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson.

Paylor adds that the Browns were not interested in talking about a Peters deal.
