As the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams work there way to completing a blockbuster trade that will send Marcus Peters to Southern California, we’re starting to hear a bit more about the trade process. Immediately after it was reported that Peters would in fact land with the Rams, other reports suggested that the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers were also in on acquiring the All-Pro corner from Kansas City. Now, according to this tidbit from Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the 49ers’ interest in Peters did not include a trade offer. This comes after NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport noted that San Francisco’s interest in Peters was lukewarm. This means that the Rams were pretty much bidding against themselves. There’s nothing concrete out there telling us exactly what Los Angeles gave up to add Peters to the mix. The only suggestion here is that it’s going to be a package of picks. Without a second-rounder after dealing that selection to Buffalo last summer, the Rams are likely dealing their first-round pick as part of the package heading back to Kansas City.
49ers never made a trade offer for Marcus Peters
