Chiefs Agree To Trade Marcus Peters To Rams For Draft Picks

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that the Chiefs would only get a bundle of draft picks and not a player, though they were apparently pushing for Rams defensive end Robert Quinn at one point. As Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wrote: "The Chiefs became sufficiently exasperated with Peters past year to suspend him for one game".

That game wrapped up a four-game losing streak for the Chiefs.

Adding Peters gives the Rams assurance in the secondary. He disappointed Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt for his refusal to stand during the national anthem last season, and the two later came to an agreement in which Peters stayed in the locker room until the anthem was finished.

Peters was suspended for the team's next game, but it was revealed he was suspended not only for the antics during the game, but also for arguing with an assistant coach. Peters then left the field without having been ejected, infamously returning a few minutes later without socks. Some of his actions in his efforts to avoid contact bordered on the comical. Since Peters entered the NFL in 2015, no player has more interceptions (19) or passes defensed (55), per NFL Research. The Rams are one of the teams on the rise coming off their first playoff appearance in well over a decade. The Chiefs have dominated the division over the past couple of seasons, and Peters was a huge part of what they liked to do on the defensive side of the ball. 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.

The remaining question is what did the Chiefs get back from the Rams?
