Chiefs Trade Marcus Peters to Rams

Peters, 25, is one of the most talented players in the NFL.

The Kansas City Chiefs' new general manager raised eyebrows earlier this offseason by reportedly agreeing to trade Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins. And as long as Kayvon Webster bounces back from injury, Los Angeles will have quite the duo at cornerback.

That is especially true in the wake of the Chiefs trading CB Marcus Peters to Los Angeles combined with the fact that Johnson is already an unrestricted free agent. They are focusing on the final part of the deal right now. It seems that the Chiefs could be getting a haul in return. Peters earned a one-game suspension from Chiefs head coach Andy Reid last season. Later in the season Peters remained in the tunnel leading to the field from the locker room and did not appear on the field during the national anthem. Despite finishing with a strong grade from Pro Football Focus, Peters was also one of the most penalized cornerbacks in the league in 2017. I find this highly unlikely. He is coming off a five-interception season that also saw the former first-round pick suspended for a game.

Marcus Peters is in rarified company when it comes to his ability to generate turnovers. That's how game-changing Peters has been for K.C. over his first three seasons.

Brett Veach is not messing around, folks. Mitchell was benched, Nelson battled injuries, Phillip Gaines and Kenneth Acker were bad, and Darrelle Revis didn't play well enough to earn a second year with the Chiefs. These are the kinds of moves that leave an organization labeled geniuses or fools-there is no in between.
