Marcus Peters on trade to Rams: It’s just business

Marcus Peters has no hard feelings toward the Chiefs after they agreed last week to trade him to the Rams.

Peters said today on NFL Network that he understands the Chiefs decided to trade him because they think that’s what’s best for their team, and he’s fine with that, and optimistic that he can demonstrate that the Rams made the right move.

“It’s business. It’s business,” Peters said. “And all I can do is just go handle mine. I thank the Kansas City Chiefs for everything they did for me to start it off. Now it’s on to L.A. I’m going to miss playing with my teammates, for sure. That’s the biggest thing about this game that you can’t change nothing about the business. Because once you get in that locker room, that’s family. And I miss the guys.”

Peters acknowledged that he has a reputation for having some off-field issues, but he said he has always gotten long well with Chiefs coach Andy Reid and isn’t upset that Reid and the Chiefs decided to trade him away.

“He was looking in the best interest of me to become a better player,” Peters said of Reid.

Now Peters will try to show the Rams what kind of player he is.

  1. Yes, trading away a 1st round pick for basically a ham sandwich is always considered a good business practice.

  2. The business says you’re not worth much. How’s that feel Marcus? Hopefully you’ll get your act together before you waste all that talent…

  3. Wade will make this guy fit. He does it all the time.

    Rams going to the Big Dance this year ladies, bank it!

    Go Mighty Rams!

  4. Addition by subtraction is the biggest myth in sports.

    When you remove a good young player from your team, 9/10 the team suffers.

    Not sure what the KC front office is doing. Peters is one of the best corners in the game and is cheap.

    LA is looking really dangerous on both sides of the ball now.

  5. Bro, pump the brakes.
    They got rid of you because you’re a pain in the ass.
    They know you can play, but apparently what you give them on the field isn’t worth the headache, added to what they’re paying you.
    Get used to it. It’ll be that way everywhere.

  6. “Marcus Peters has no hard feelings toward the Chiefs after they agreed last week to trade him to the Rams.”

    That may change. Has anyone told Peters yet what they traded him for?

  7. he did not play well in parts of 2017. He is also going to get paid after his rookie contract is up. Those may be the two most important reason he is traded.

  8. Wow trading away a first round pick who has been quite successful seems like a bad deal. What are we missing here? Seems like the Rams just picked up another piece for their killer defense.

  9. Of course after the Rams move to L.A. they decide to actually get serious and try and win a Superbowl-anyone else notice that? No way they were that bad and then all of sudden they’re SB contenders. Jeff Fischer by himself didn’t do that. I like the coaches they have and the players, but Kroenke really did a number on the St. Louis fans by waiting to move to try and actually make the team competitive.

  10. The Whole “Locker Room Cancer” bit is Beyond Old and Tired!!! Unlike my team, the New York Giants where Eli Apple got called out by his highly esteemed teammates NONE of Peters former teammates have said Diddly Squat!!! Yet all of you “Chiefs Couch Analysts” have the young man painted as a villain. And Blah Blah Blah, he got kicked off his College team, The SAME HUSKIES that allowed him to participate in their Pro Day. All he’s done On The Field is Lead the League in Interceptions since he’s been drafted!!! Only other player is Ed Reed that has had 5 or more interceptions in his first 3 Seasons!! You know Ed Reed the guy that will UNDOUBTEDLY be getting a Gold Jacket. I know I know, he took himself out of 1 game!! Excuse me if Im not ready to line him up for the firing Squad!!! Lol The guy has been Zero trouble Off the field, No Dui’s, No Domestic Violence issues(Here’s Looking at you Tyreek Hill Fans) No Failed Drug tests, Etc. Etc…. Yet somehow you feel justified removing this Immense Talent from your team in the name of “Team Culture”? LOL The Chiefs have TONS of Veterans on that team that set the tone for what it is to be a professional. This is a league of Grown Men, how the arguably most talented guy on the defense is somehow scapegoated as a liability is FOOLS GOLD!!! Trading for Fuller is NOT gonna be able to nearly offset the loss of Peters. I would’ve Loved my Giants to have traded for “The Locker Room Cancer” to line up across from JackRabbit Jenkins and slid DRC into the nickelback spot. You think the Rams Defense was tough last year? Wait to you see them with 2 shut down corners if they keep trumaine.

  11. I think it’s crazy to call a guy a lockerroom cancer when you’ve never been inside the lockerroom. Do you know how many different personalities are on a team? Do you know most football players understand each other and speak a similar language? So ridiculous

  12. That’s how you respond to a trade. Say what you want about his issues, but Peters handled that with pure class. The guy does a ton for his community too, and antics on fields aside, he’s is a stand up guy.

    And as a Raider fan, I’m glad he’s out of the West, but man I got a lot of respect for Peters. Good luck!

    ————————————–
    The main thing you are missing is the fact that Peters seems to wear out his welcome after 3 years no matter where he is at. Check his history. The second thing you are missing is the fact that he won’t tackle, aka Deion Sanders 2.0.

  14. There are few players who do as much for their communities as Marcus Peters. He may be misunderstood by those who don’t understand the background he comes from, but to the people of Oakland, he’s a hero and someone for the kids to look up to. Don’t let emotions someone displays on the field cloud your judgement of who they truly are.

  15. Wait to you see them with 2 shut down corners if they keep trumaine.

    They aren’t keeping Trumaine… hence this trade. They can’t keep Trumaine and the beast DFPOY. They both need long term extensions. Trumaine won’t get a 3rd tag and Aaron will sit again this year if they don’t give him the extension he most certainly deserves. Haven’t you been paying attention?!?! Peters at less than 2 mil this year allows for them to extend Aaron. I swear some people don’t know anything about this sport lol.

    ************************************************

    Well isnt it GRAND that you have a CRYSTAL Ball!!! Lol I NEVER said they would tag Trumaine again but it is POSSIBLE that if they deemed him more important than Joyner that they COULD strike a long term deal!!! Everybody on here is speaking in “Ifs and Maybes” EINSTEIN!!! Ofcourse Donald will get paid but that DOES NOT Mean that they wouldnt also like to keep Trumaine. Peters is only “on the cheap” for 1 year, his 5th year he will be at 9 Mill. Still not his market value but not nearly the 3 Mill(1.75 against the cap) hes getting for 2018. So just because Im not a “Rams Insider Lol” like you doesnt mean Im not knowledgeable Bruh. Because someone doesn’t see the same scenario as you playing out the same way doesnt make them Ignorant!! Lol
