Report: Chiefs to Get a Pair of Draft Picks from Rams for Marcus Peters

The Chiefs will receive a 2018 fourth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick from the Rams in exchange for cornerback Marcus Peters and a 2018 sixth-round pick, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The trade, which was originally agreed to Friday, cannot be officially announced until the start of the 2018 league year on March 14.

Peters would presumably step in as the Rams’ primary cornerback, which might spell the end of Trumaine Johnson’s tenure with the team. Peters has compiled 19 interceptions in his first three NFL seasons and was named first-team All-Pro in 2016, the second of back-to-back Pro Bowl appearances.

But Peters also joins the Rams with some character concerns. He was thrown off his college team at Washington for an altercation with an assistant coach. In December, he was suspended by the Chiefs for one game after tossing an official’s penalty flag into the crowd and then retreating to the locker room without being ejected during a game against the New York Jets.
