The Kansas City Chiefs are poised to make another blockbuster trade. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported K.C. finalized a trade agreement Friday to ship cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams, according to sources informed of the deal. ESPN first reported the development. Terms of the deal have yet to be reported. The Rams do not own a 2018 second-round pick, having shipped that selection to Buffalo in the Sammy Watkins deal. At one point, the #Chiefs were pushing to trade for DE <a href="https://www.gearcapanthers.com/nike-game-luke-kuechly-blue-youth-jersey-carolina-panthers-59-nfl-alternate-p-1107.html" alt="Game Luke Kuechly Youth Jersey" title="Game Luke Kuechly Youth Jersey"><strong>Game Luke Kuechly Youth Jersey</strong></a> Robert Quinn, along with a draft pick. But sounds <a href="https://www.gearcapanthers.com/devin-funchess-jersey-c-12.html" alt="Devin Funchess Jersey" title="Devin Funchess Jersey"><strong>Devin Funchess Jersey</strong></a> like now it'll be just draft picks going over to KC for Marcus Peters. Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 23, 2018 Trades cannot become official until the new league year begins on March 14. Peters is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, making the All-Pro team in 2016 and winning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2015. The ball-hawking cover man compiled 19 interceptions in just three seasons. Since Peters entered the NFL in 2015, no player has more interceptions (19) or pa ses defensed (55), per NFL Research. Including playoffs, Peters tallied 21 INTs. Only Ed Reed (22) has more interceptions than Peters over the first three seasons of a player's career in the last 25 years. Despite his talent on the football field, the Chiefs had reportedly become disenchanted by his behavior. <a href="https://www.gearcapanthers.com/nike-game-luke-kuechly-black-womens-jersey-carolina-panthers-59-nfl-home-p-210.html" alt="Game Luke Kuechly Women's Jersey" title="Game Luke Kuechly Women's Jersey"><strong>Game Luke Kuechly Women's Jersey</strong></a> The team suspended the 25-year-old corner for one game last season for his actions during and after a lo s to the New York Jets -- when he famously to sed a referee flag after the play, then left the field without being ejected. The stunning Peters deal comes le s than a month after the Chiefs agreed to ship quarterback Alex Smith to Washington. K.C. will receive rising corner Kendall Fuller in the package for Smith. The Chiefs also recently signed corner David Amerson. Those moves led to talks that Peters might be moved, despite the potential downgrade at the <a href="https://www.gearcapanthers.com/luke-kuechly-jersey-c-1.html" alt="Luke Kuechly Jersey" title="Luke Kuechly Jersey"><strong>Luke Kuechly Jersey</strong></a> position. Trading a player of Peters' caliber, who can be under contract for a bargain rate for the next two seasons -- $1.8 million in 2018, team fifth-year option in 2019 -- is almost unheard of in the NFL. The low cost coupled with talent made the deal appealing for L.A., which is likely hoping a change of scenery will smooth out any questionable character concerns. The move also indicates the Rams will allow corner Trumaine Johnson to walk in free agency. Importing Peters to take his place at a fraction of the cost is a stroke of brilliance for L.A. and ensures there will be no talent drain on Wade Phillips' defense -- especially if the Rams franchise tag safety Lamarcus <a href="https://www.gearcapanthers.com/nike-game-cam-newton-white-mens-jersey-carolina-panthers-1-nfl-road-p-2696.html" alt="Game Cam Newton White Jersey" title="Game Cam Newton White Jersey"><strong>Game Cam Newton White Jersey</strong></a> Joyner. Rapoport added that in addition to the Rams, Browns and 49ers also were interested in trading for Peters.
