If the proposed deal between the Chiefs and Rams that will lead to cornerback Marcus Peters playing in Los Angeles next season should fall apart before it can become official on March 14, the Chiefs may still be able to send Peters to the NFC West.

Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports that the 49ers also expressed interest in making a deal for Peters in talks that went on over the last three weeks.

Their interest in adding a cornerback doesn’t come as much of a surprise as Dontae Johnson is set for free agency and the team is continuing to build up the talent across the roster in their second year under General Manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan. They visited with Vontae Davis recently and reportedly had interest in David Amerson before he signed with the Chiefs.

Paylor adds that the Browns were not interested in talking about a Peters deal. Browns General Manager John Dorsey was the G.M. in Kansas City when Peters was drafted in the first round of the 2015 draft.

  1. Niners are kicking their heads over the Rams beating them to get Peters. Now they’re going to face him twice a year,and Garopolo must keep an eye on him when passing the ball. Rivalry is on.

    Early reports are “a package of picks”. I don’t think the Niners are going to sweat this too much. Who even knows if Peters resigns when his contract is up. He would have been a good addition only if his head is screwed on right. Also, he’s going to replace Trumaine Johnson so it’s not like the Rams secondary improved drastically with this deal.

  3. You usually have to pay to get a cancer remove, not to get one.

    Just ask the Raiders how binging in Lynch worked out? Bringing in that cancer backfired…..and Peter looks up to Lynch.

    And FYI, this is not your grapes. I cheered for Charles, Maclin, and Perterson (Philly Coach) this year. Will cheer for Smith next year,you and cheered for Gannon, Smith (Neal),and Flowers in the pass. I have not been this happy to be rid of a player since Larry Johnson….and that too provided to be a good cancer to get rid of.

    Best Luck L.A., you are going to need it.

    PS. Lol, enjoy watching Peters run away from making a tackle.

  4. the other options at CB include Malcolm Butler, who was benched for an unknown reason or reasons by Bill Belichick, who refused to disclose those “reasons.”

    Fun fact. The 49ers had a chance to draft Marcus Peters. Instead they drafted Arik Armstead. KC drafted next and they took Peters.

  5. Latest reports say the 49ers interest in Peters was lukewarm at best. With the issues surrounding Foster, there is no way they were going to take another chance with a headcase
