Chiefs to trade star corner Marcus Peters to Los Angeles Rams

Chiefs to trade star corner Marcus Peters to Los Angeles Rams

Since being selected by the Chiefs with the 18th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, Peters has developed into one of the best young cornerbacks in all of football.

The stunning Peters deal comes less than a month after the Chiefs agreed to ship quarterback Alex Smith to Washington. The team also decided not to resign the team's all-time leading tackler Derrick Johnson.

The 6 foot 197 pound 25-year-old just completed his third season in the NFL. Over the last three seasons, he has accounted for 24 turnovers, including 19 interceptions.

The principle reason Kansas City was likely uncomfortable with signing Peters to a long-term deal is his propensity for losing his head on the field.

As a result of today's trade, NFL.com's Kevin Patra says the Rams will now let cornerback Trumaine Johnson walk in free agency.

Kansas City will receive a "package of draft picks" in return for Peters, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported.

While his antics in the game garnered the most media attention, he had a spat with one of the Chiefs coach on the plane ride out of NY after the game, which one can only assume did him no favors with Chiefs' brass. The team had until May 3 to pick up a fifth-year option for 2019 for around $9 million.

After trading up to get Patrick Mahomes a year ago, the Chiefs entered 2018 without much draft capital.

The remaining question is what did the Chiefs get back from the Rams? But now there are as many questions at cornerback as there were a year ago.

These things do happen in TV ". 'Lauren is an actor who has such intuition and such power. "So yeah, hopefully, it all works out". It is understood that AMC offered Cohan a "modest" salary increase and a longer contract instead, which she rejected.

Only time will tell if a fresh start in the City of Angels will work out for Peters and the Rams. Johnson played the past two seasons on the Rams' franchise tag, and he could command a record-setting deal.
