The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs trade details finally came out Monday as the Rams acquired CB Marcus Peters from the Chiefs in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round pick and 2019 second-round pick.
It took three days, but finally the details of what the Chiefs are getting in exchange for their (former) 25-year-old number one corner are out. The Chiefs are also sending a sixth-rounder the Rams way. The move will become official on the first day of the new league year (March 14). It’s not a complete giveaway, but it’s a no-brainer price for the Rams, who are getting a proven high-level talent at the NFL level instead of taking two draft dart throws.
Though, a difficult personality, Peters became a headache in Kansas City but continued to perform as one of the league’s better corners in 2017. He arrives in Los Angeles as the Rams’ clear-cut number one. The move all but confirms the Rams will allow Trumaine Johnson to walk in free agency. Peters is technically headed into the final year of his rookie contract, but the Rams will undoubtedly exercise his fifth-year team option for 2019.
