Rams gave a fourth and a 2019 second for Marcus Peters

Rams gave a fourth and a 2019 second for Marcus Peters

Last Friday the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams struck a deal.

Clearly the trade, which isn't official until the league season begins anew on March 14, makes the Rams potentially better, and sets the table for what the team does with some of the personnel questions they still have on defense.

Why the 2019 second rounder? Although the terms of the trade have not yet been revealed, it's expected that the Rams won't have to surrender a first-round pick in the trade. That was just wishful thinking.

The assumption when the Chiefs traded Marcus Peters, a star cornerback with multiple years left on his rookie contract, was that he would secure Kansas City a pretty big haul via trade.

"Peters had one team bidding for him", an NFC vice president of personnel told B/R's Matt Miller. If there was a player made for Los Angeles, it's Peters. He'll certainly get all the attention he could want without looking for it with antics.

Aaron Donald, who spent the previous year under this coaching regime, knows the Rams have the guys in place to hold players accountable.

At only 25 years old, this seems like a steal for the Rams in acquiring Peters.

Rams head coach Sean McVay was asked about the pending trade Sunday and Peters' specific issues that soured his time in the Show-Me state.

"I'm expecting turnovers and I'm expecting a win", Peters said. "... These are grown men, and it starts with the mutual respect that exists, where they know it's about developing and building relationships". I'm going to miss playing with my teammates for sure. "They know exactly what the expectations are, what our standards are, and they know what it is to do it the right way".

The addition of Peters is a massive upgrade to their secondary as he has proven to be one of the top cornerbacks in the league who's earned a pair of Pro Bowl selections and a First-Team All-Pro nod.

"He (Phillips) is a coach". Because once you get in that locker room, that's family.
