Chiefs Trade Marcus Peters to Rams

Chiefs Trade Marcus Peters to Rams

This deal comes less than a month after the Chiefs sent Alex Smith to Washington and will be receiving rising corner Kendall Fuller for Smith.

Earlier today, the Kansas City Chiefs jettisoned Marcus Peters, who's caught 19 interceptions since entering the league in 2015, to the Los Angeles Rams.

Details of the trade, which won't be processed until the start of the new league year on March 14, have yet to be disclosed.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs "were pushing to trade for" Rams OLB Robert Quinn in talks around CB Marcus Peters, but Quinn is unlikely to be part of the package. It was later reported that his suspension by the team was also in part due to a spat with a coach. In December, he was suspended by the Chiefs for one game after tossing an official's penalty flag into the crowd and then retreating to the locker room without being ejected during a game against the New York Jets.

He also drew criticism this past year for not standing for the national anthem.

By trading for Peters, the Rams are replacing one ball hawk (Trumaine Johnson) with an even better one.

Just as important, it provides a shutdown corner for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

None of those character concerns was evidently enough to dissuade the Rams from making a deal, though.

Signing Johnson in free agency and the selecting a safety in the 2018 NFL Draft to pair with Jabrill Peppers, and suddenly the Browns secondary is on par with the front seven and puts the pieces in place for a defense that can get fans excited.

Peters was voted to the Pro Bowl after the 2015 and 2016 seasons, won the 2015 Defensive Rookie of the Year Award and was an Associated Press first-team All-Pro selection in 2016. The Rams don't have their second-round pick, which was traded away in the Jared Goff sweepstakes.
