Rams agree to trade for CB Peters

Marcus Peters trade to Rams paves way for Trumaine Johnson to Raiders

On Friday morning, the Los Angeles Rams made their first big move of the offseason with the big-splash addition of All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs. With the added players in the secondary on their way, the Chiefs may have felt they had enough depth to trade Peters.

The trade will not be made "official" until the new league year starts on March 14. Peters, a two-time Pro Bowler who was named first-team All-Pro in 2016, has compiled an NFL-leading 19 interceptions since being drafted 18th overall three years ago. It was later reported that his suspension by the team was also in part due to a spat with a coach.

The Kansas City Chiefs have made a decision to move on from Marcus Peters.

Late in the fourth quarter of a 38-31 loss to the New York Jets, Peters was upset at a penalty and picked up the referee's flag and threw it into the stands.

Chicago bank executive investigated as part of Mueller's Russia probe
The attorney, Alex van der Zwaan, the son-in-law of one of Russia's richest men, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Washington , D.C., to a charge of lying to the Special Counsel's office.

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

Whatever the case may be, Peters will be going to the Rams among potential suitors, which means he'll be much closer to his hometown of Oakland, California, than Kansas City-for better or for worse.

Now, Peters goes to an LA team where he will play under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. Without a second-rounder after dealing that selection to Buffalo last summer, the Rams are likely dealing their first-round pick as part of the package heading back to Kansas City.

Peters will count $1.74 million toward the salary cap this season, the final year of his rookie deal, and the Rams will have until May 3 to decide whether to pick up his fifth-year option. The Rams don't have their second-round pick, which was traded away in the Jared Goff sweepstakes.
