The Kansas City Chiefs decided on Friday morning to make a significant alteration to their secondary with the trade of All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams. It was a surprising move that had been in the works for the last few weeks before being finally agreed upon.

This looks to have been a culmination of the relationship between the Chiefs and Peters souring over the last several months. The distance in the connection may have been further heightened with the 25-year-old possibly requesting a trade immediately following Kansas City’s disappointing 22-21 loss in the wildcard playoff game to the Tennessee Titans.
