The Ravens announced a contract extension with cornerback Marcus Peters on Saturday.

The deal is for three years, worth $42 million and includes $32 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Peters will get $20.5 million in the first year, per Schefter.

Peters, 26, appears finally to have found a home.

The Chiefs made him a first-round choice in 2015. Kansas City traded him to the Rams in March 2018, and the Rams traded him to the Ravens before the trade deadline in October after 22 games.

This season he has five interceptions, scoring on three of them, with 14 pass breakups, including three interceptions and two touchdowns in nine games with the Ravens.

Peters made his third Pro Bowl.

    Ravens will continue to run the AFC for the next 5 to 8 years.

    Based on their history I think that is very unlikely. Lamar Jackson will have been figured out next year (see RGIII). And with Harbaugh’s coaching they’re not going anywhere, once the gimmick plays dry up.

    It’s not hard to see who got the best of this trade. Thank you Rams


    Considering Ramsey is going to want $20 mill/yr and cost 2 1sts. This was a horrible, horrible trade for the Rams whose superbowl window just slammed shut and got boarded over.

    The Rams can’t afford Ramsey and can’t afford to let him walk. Gurley costs $20 mill to cut/ $10 mill to keep and noone is trading for that contract.

    The Rams are in cap hell and when they hit rock bottom, kept digging with the Ramsey trade.

    If the ravens lose the superbowl they should fire that boomer john harbaugh because he clearly cant get over the hill.

    7 75 Rate This

    You are aware that he already has won an SB title as Baltimore’s HC…right?

  4. I was expecting them to keep Peters since CB is always a position of need in Baltimore. I wonder if Jimmy Smith will be retained?

    This was made possible by the jettison of Flacco and his dead cap space being cleared for next year.

  5. Traded twice for a bag of chips and the posts above are dead on; rams don’t have him, the ability to keep Ramsey or a first round pick for two years. That’s the path to the playoffs!

    People like you said that last year, then said it 4 games into this season, then 4 games after that. “Gimmick plays dry up” yup, that’ll be the end of his production…his 67% completion %, red zone production, and all 40+ TDs.

  7. The LAmbs replaced Peters with Jalen Ramsey. LAmbs are happy. Baltimore appears to be happy and Peters is happy. Happy ending or is it. LOL

  8. Theres a reason Peters has been on 3 teams in 4 years. As soon as the Ravens start having, issues which they will next year, Peters will wear out his welcome just like he has everywhere he’s been. Oh and Ravens fans before you all start crowning yourself as the next dynasty maybe you should win a playoff game first.

  9. He’s so pleased with his extension, he is going to throw an official’s flag into the stands in celebration this weekend!

  10. Good move by the Ravens. Marlon Humphrey will absolutely get paid when his contract is up. Jimmy Smith contract expires after this season so he can test the market and then come back if the price is right.

    Lamar isn’t due for two more seasons since he was a first round pick the Ravens get the fourth year option.

    All Flacco’s dead money is gone this offseason so the Ravens are in great shape with the cap.

  11. The Ravens can now be proactive with players they want to keep, since they don’t have that $120 million dollar albatross of a contract for Flacco around their necks. Smart, smart move by Eric DeCosta.

  12. Bazooka Joe – Hilarious take. Pay attention and takes some notes:

    1. All draft picks get four year deals. First rounders get a fifth year options.

    2. Virtually ZERO chance Lamar goes past next year without a new deal. He is eligible for a new deal after Year 3 and wont take ONE SNAP beyond that without $100M++ guarantee – unless his play falls off or he gets injured.

  13. Yes, the Ravens certainly made out best in that exchange. I didn’t really understand it. If you’re the rams and you have a pro bowl corner, why are you going to trade him and 2 first rounders to get a better cb BUT not better by leaps and bounds. Am I the only one that thinks the rams are going to try to trade ramsey at the draft? I’d think they can at least get 60% of what they gave up rather than compound the mistake with a mega contract. Like, if they could get a late 1 & 3 in return, they should really consider. Ramsey is great though, this opinion is certainly no indictment against him. The rams just have so many bloated contracts, I don’t understand how they can afford another. That team will be at the bottom of the west in 2 years if they don’t do something drastic about their cap situation & I don’t see how giving up $20/year to another guy is plausible if they expect to compete.

  14. Ravens great org, Lamar already a great QB – bu….BUT we are measured on SB’s- not many for the Ravens =- to topple th king, you must beat the king. Looking forward to it.

    GO Pats.

  15. When a guy is on his 3rd team in 5 years, that should tell you something about him. Peters is a good, not great, CB. He is only good for about 1 to 2 years and then he wears out his welcome. He was a problem child at Washington, then KC, and was a little better with LA. Been somewhat quiet this year but expect that to change next year.

  16. There is no figuring out Jackson. You either break your ankles or have unbreakable ankles.
    I’m as dumbfounded as the rest of the planet.

    this guy sucks. dusted in the super bowl
    and dusted constantly

    what a stupid contract


    He was in a system that didn’t fit him with the Rams. Since joining the Ravens, he has reached All Pro levels, similar to those he reached in KC. NFL is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately league and Peters has been incredible.

  18. Playing DB is a little easier when your team is up by 5 touchdowns.

    The Ravens better save some dough to pay Jackson the 45 million per year he can demand in a new deal. Jackson could probably ask for 50 million and get it.

  19. 42 mill for they guy who has allowed more yds and tds than any other CB since 2015? Ouch!!!!

  20. Ravens will end up trading him in 2 years once the honeymoon wears off and Marcus reverts back to who he is.

    “T-the Ravens and Lamar will struggle next year” – increasingly worried AFC fans


    Um…not really. Let the Ravens actually string together a couple good seasons before anointing them a juggernaut and world beaters.

    Congrats at winning the best record in the AFC regular season. Try shutting up till you actually win something!
