At long last, the details of the Marcus Peters trade are known. While the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams reportedly agreed to a trade for Marcus Peters last week, it wasn't reported what the Rams were sending to the Chiefs. Now we know, as Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs are getting a 2018 4th round pick and a 2019 2nd round pick. Adam Schefter reports the Chiefs are including a 2018 6th round pick in addition to Peters.
The trade can't be completed until the new league year begins in March. The Rams don't have a second round pick this year, hence the 2019 2nd rounder being included. The Rams are able to keep their first round pick.
It's not a steep price for one of the best corners in the NFL. However, there wasn't much interest in Peters, with the Rams and 49ers the only teams reportedly showing serious interest.
Peters is one of the best playmaking CBs in the NFL. In just three years, he's already picked off 19 passes, forced five fumbles and recovered five.
However, he's drawn ire in the past for attitude issues. He was suspended for a game last year, after an argument with a coach and a game in which he threw an official's flag into the stands, left the field and returned with no shoes on. Peters is also due for an expensive new contract and there were concerns he could hold out this year.Back to the Los Angeles Rams Newsfeed
