Report: Chiefs, Rams agree to trade for Marcus Peters

The reports about the Kansas City Chiefs shopping cornerback Marcus Peters in trade talks were apparently accurate.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chiefs have agreed to trade Peters to the Los Angeles Rams and could finalize the deal as early as Friday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network says the Rams are sending a package of draft picks to Kansas City.

Peters, the No. 18 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, has recorded 19 interceptions in his first three NFL seasons. He’s set to count just over $3 million against the cap in 2018 and the Chiefs have a $9.5 million club option for him in 2019, so it’s somewhat surprising that they are dealing him.

While Peters is considered a solid cover corner, the Chiefs ranked near the bottom of the NFL in defense last season. The former Washington star was also involved in an unfortunate incident where he was so upset about a penalty that he threw a flag into the stands. It’s possible that played a role in Kansas City’s decision, but they are likely just looking to shake things up on defense with how poor their secondary played in 2017.
