Thus, we are left in the dark with what the Rams gave up. They were desperate for a shutdown cornerback for defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, especially with Trumaine Johnson due to hit free agency after spending two seasons playing on the franchise tag. In December, he was suspended by the Chiefs for one game after tossing an official's penalty flag into the crowd and then retreating to the locker room without being ejected during a game against the New York Jets.
But Peters also joins the Rams with some character concerns.
If the Rams were able to retain their first round pick for this year's draft, it will come as a huge bonus, allowing them to possibly use that in an area of need depending on how things transpire in free agency.
Peters was voted to the Pro Bowl after the 2015 and 2016 seasons, won the 2015 Defensive Rookie of the Year Award and was an Associated Press first-team All-Pro selection in 2016.
Since being selected by the Chiefs with the 18th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, Peters has developed into one of the best young cornerbacks in all of football. But it's unknown whether those will occur in April's draft or in following years.
