Wowee, the Rams got over on the Chiefs. While many Chiefs fans were outright expecting there to be a first round pick somewhere in the trade for Marcus Peters, they didn’t get that. Not even close.
The #Chiefs traded CB Marcus Peters to the #Rams for a 2018 fourth round pick and a 2019 2nd round pick, sources say. The deal can’t be official until the league year begins.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 26, 2018
According to Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs will receive a 4th round pick in this year’s draft and a second rounder in next year’s draft. That’s a steal for the Rams who get one of the best cornerbacks in football.
Said Arrowhead Pride of the trade:
Previous reports suggested the Rams first round pick wouldn’t be involved and the Rams didn’t have a second round pick. So many Chiefs fans were thinking the Rams third round pick this year would be involved but the Chiefs aren’t even getting that this year. They do get the second rounder but that’s in 2019, not this year.
One day, I really want to know the backstory behind this trade because I expected much more than this. I didn’t expect the return for the Chiefs to be this low. This trade does not look any better right now. It seems obvious to me now why someone — sure seems like it was the Chiefs — didn’t want these details coming out.
There has to be more to the story.
Oh, and the comments on this story. Chiefs fans are fightin’ mad.
UPDATE: BAHAHAHA! Wait...AAAAHAHA. Hold on. Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs also sent a 6th round pick to the Rams.
