Friday’s big headline is that the Chiefs are expected to send cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams in a trade that can’t become official until the new league year starts on March 14.

The exact compensation heading back to Kansas City isn’t known at this point, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is expected to get draft picks in return. At some point in their talks with the Rams, however, the Chiefs reportedly asked for a player in return.

Per Rapoport, that player was outside linebacker Robert Quinn and the Chiefs were also looking for a draft pick. Quinn had 8.5 sacks for the Rams last season and 62.5 for his career and his acquisition might have set up other offseason moves for an active Chiefs team that has already agreed to trade quarterback Alex Smith.

It appears that won’t be happening as part of a deal for Peters and we’ll likely find out what picks the Chiefs are planning to add to their draft stock fairly soon.

  1. Going to have to be a really good offseason for the Chiefs just to get back to even after losing Derrick Johnson & Peters. Hard to see what their game is at this point.

    Non-Redskins fans haven’t seen what Kendall Fuller can do yet. If he keeps up his current career trajectory, he’ll be an indisputable top five corner within two years. PFF already ranked him as the #1 slot corner in the league last season, for whatever that’s worth. Get psyched.

    Quinn most likely will get released and save the Rams about 11 mil. So Chiefs can then go get him.

    Why in the hell would the Rams refuse to trade Quinn to the Chiefs, only to go ahead and release him anyway?

    SMH,,,,,Damn…Put down that pipe man

    Chief’s window to win has shut tightly. Time to get younger, smarter and cheaper. Peters is a huge talent, and a bigger headache.

    Maybe 2020 for the next playoff win?

    Yea, try this coming season
