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 NFL league year doesn't start until March 14, so the deal will not be official until then, but for all intents is purposes, it's done.

As of the time of this being written, it has not been reported exactly what the package of draft picks the team gave up for Peters entails. He already has 19 interceptions and led the National Football League in pick return yardage in two of the last three seasons. Johnson posted 193 tackles (162 solo), three fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, 10 interceptions and 41 passes defensed between 2015-17. According to media scuttlebutt, the Chiefs had grown exhausted of Peters's proclivity for generating headlines for reasons other than his talent on the football field.

But Peters also joins the Rams with some character concerns. In January, the Chiefs traded Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith to Washington in exchange for draft picks and young, talented cornerback Kendall Fuller.

This looks to have been a culmination of the relationship between the Chiefs and Peters souring over the last several months.

This is the second major trade for the Chiefs this off-season.

Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters is one of the elite players at his position, but the team has apparently exhausted of his behavior and attitude. The Rams have until May 3rd to pick up Peters' fifth-year option for 2019 projected at $9 million. He's been Los Angeles' top corner for the last two seasons and played under the franchise tag in both.
