Chiefs, Rams agree to trade for Marcus Peters

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters signals to the bench that a penalty is against the Tennessee Titans during the first half of an NFL wild-card playoff game in Kansas City Mo. Saturday Jan. 6 2018

The move, like the Washington Redskins' trade of Kendall Fuller, was met with swift criticism from Chiefs fans, and rightfully so.

"We can't have our Pro Bowl corner getting tossed out the game", Chiefs safety Ron Parker told Lorenzo Reyes of USA Today after the incident.

The Kansas City Chiefs do play the Los Angeles Rams this season for what it's worth.

The rumor mill started turning in the week or so prior to the trade going down. Johnson has proven to be a productive player over his six-year career on the West Coast and the Stockton, Calif. native just turned 28 years old on New Year's Day.

Most infamously, Peters threw an official's flag after disagreeing with a call late in a Chiefs loss to the New York Jets in December and walked off the field before returning without his helmets and socks.




This was the second step the Chiefs had taken to rebuilding their roster in the wake of yet another embarrassing home playoff defeat in which they once led by 18 points.

The Kansas City Chiefs have chose to move on from Marcus Peters.

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 49ers, after making National Football League history with Garoppolo's deal this month, definitely are in the market for a cornerback to join their starting lineup alongside 2017 rookie Ahkello Witherspoon and nickel back K'Waun Williams. Broncos corner Aqib Talib may also hit the open market.
