Rams have made their first big move in free agency. It appears there is a deal underway to sign Chiefs CB Marcus Peters.
Peters has been an electrifying talent in his three years in the NFL. He has been in two pro-bowls, he has 19 interceptions for 480 yards, and 2 touchdowns. In his rookie season, Peters had 60 combined tackles, eight interceptions, two of which went for touchdowns. In 2016, Peters was ranked #32 on the NFL’s top 100 players in the NFL.
Since 2015, Peters’ 19 interceptions ranks 1st, his 55 passes defensed ranks 1st, and his 51.9 completion percent allowed ranks 5th.
The Rams have had CB as a top priority with Trumaine Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman set to hit free agency. While they may still make that a priority in the draft, it would appear they have struck gold in the free agency market.
