Marcus Peters Reportedly Expected to Be Traded to Rams

If Peters did express some feelings of not wanting to be with the Chiefs, and they already had some issues with his behavior, then it makes sense why Kansas City agreed to trade him this offseason.

While the price-tag for Peters in terms of draft picks is yet to be revealed, we do know that LA won't be paying his full contract, per USA TODAY's Cameron DaSilva.

Browns General Manager John Dorsey was the G.M.in Kansas City when Peters was drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft. They suspended him one game last season after an outburst during a loss to the Jets which included throwing a flag and his socks into the stands and getting into a disagreement with a coach.

The trade will not be made "official" until the new league year starts on March 14.

During that interview, Billa also told FOX10 News that he shares a moment with his wife every day before he goes to work. Police in Mobile say it happened just after midnight when they responded to a shooting on Avondale Court.

Marcus Peters, considered one of the NFL's best cornerbacks and one of its most volatile personalities, soon will anchor the Rams' secondary. Yes, trading a guy with Hall of Fame numbers throughout just three years seems insane, but Peters never really appeared to be happy with the Chiefs.

However, perhaps Ballard (who's highly regarded for his defensive back evaluation) didn't want to surrender the draft compensation and was more comfortable drafting a potential shutdown cornerback early on in this year's NFL Draft. It's one the Rams won't have to worry about paying now with the addition of Peters. And although Davis left the Bay Area without a deal after meeting with Oakland and the 49ers, there are several other free agent cornerbacks for the Raiders to consider in 2018, namely former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson.

Peters was originally the 18th overall pick out of Washington in 2015 and will cost $3.05 million toward the salary cap this season. In particular, they'd like to sign safety Lamarcus Joyner and receiver Sammy Watkins, and not have to use the NFL's franchise-tag designation on either player.
