Chiefs reportedly expected to trade cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams
Peters has played well since the Chiefs selected him in the first round of the 2015 draft
Marcus Peters is apparently moving on. According to a report from ESPN.com's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are expected to trade the cornerback to the Los Angeles Rams. The deal could be completed sometime on Friday.
Peters was the Chiefs' first-round pick in 2015. He slipped to the back half of the first round because of concerns about his attitude while in college, but he has been an excellent player throughout his first three NFL seasons.
Peters made the Pro Bowl in 2015 and 2016, leading the NFL in interceptions (eight) and pick-sixes (two) as a rookie. He was named a First Team All-Pro during his second season as well. He has 19 interceptions, five forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries. Nobody else in the NFL has more than 14 interceptions during that time while only three defensive players have recovered more fumbles. Only three players (Everson Walls, Ed Reed, Richard Sherman) have ever intercepted more passes in their first three seasons than Peters.
However, Peters was suspended late in the season when he. He also reportedly got into a with a Chiefs coach, which also played a role in the suspension.
The Peters deal will be the second major trade for Chiefs offseason, assuming it goes through as planned. They Alex Smith to Washington in late January.
