Rams agree to trade for CB Peters

Chiefs tried to trade for Rams Robert Quinn

The Kansas City Chiefs have finalized a trade agreement Friday to send cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams.

Earlier this week there were reports that the Chiefs were looking to trade Peters but would need a haul in return.

The trade will not be made "official" until the new league year starts on March 14. Through his first three seasons, Peters has developed into one of the top cornerbacks in the league who's earned a pair of Pro Bowl selections and a First-Team All-Pro nod. It was later reported that his suspension by the team was also in part due to a spat with a coach. The Chiefs have reportedly traded quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller.

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

There's nothing concrete out there telling us exactly what Los Angeles gave up to add Peters to the mix.

But Peters also joins the Rams with some character concerns. He's been involved in shouting matches with assistant coaches on the sideline, weird and sometimes divisive locker room antics, and was even suspended for a game last season after tossing an officials' penalty flag into the stands.

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

For the time being, the Rams have acquired a top-level talent with only a $1.74 million cap hit the 2018 season while the Chiefs are taking on a $1.3 million cap hit. Peters will head home, to the Los Angeles area, where he grew up, and the Kansas City Chiefs will presumably get a package of draft picks in exchange for their best defensive player. But it's unknown whether those will occur in April's draft or in following years.
