The Kansas City Chiefs have been going through an overhaul as they have already sent former Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins and now they are reportedly going to trade two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peter to the Los Angeles Rams.
And it looks like it is pretty imminent:
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Chiefs are getting a bevy of draft picks in return for Peters.
And that was after the Chiefs tried to steal away a solid defender in defensive end Robert Quinn.
Peters has recorded 19 interceptions over the last three seasons, including eight in his rookie season — a league best that year. He’s forced five fumbles and has recovered just as many over his short career and has recorded 130 solo tackles in his three seasons. He also has two pick-sixes and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
The 25-year old will certainly mix in nicely with a young Rams team and could be a leader on the defensive side for that team considering the experience he’s gained already despite being so young.
