49ers also had interest in Marcus Peters deal

49ers also had interest in Marcus Peters deal”

Details of the trade have not been reported.

The Chiefs' first-round pick in 2015 has 19 career interceptions in 45 games.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs "were pushing to trade for" Rams OLB Robert Quinn in talks around CB Marcus Peters, but Quinn is unlikely to be part of the package. He's been involved in shouting matches with assistant coaches on the sideline, freaky and sometimes divisive locker room antics, and was even suspended for a game last season after tossing an officials' penalty flag into the stands.

That game wrapped up a four-game losing streak for the Chiefs. Per Pro Football Focus (subscription), Peters graded out as their 17th best cornerback (tied) with a +85.7 grade overall this past season. Hunt has also met with Peters in the past to discuss his protests during the national anthem. Now, it appears he has been traded. While not as proficient at interceptions as Peters, Johnson has picked off 10 passes over the past three years to go along with 41 pass breakups.

In addition to trading away Smith after an MVP caliber season, the Chiefs have now traded their best defensive player and have effectively opened the door for anyone else in the AFC West to come in and claim the division crown.

Kansas City has also traded Alex Smith this offseason.

Kansas City does not have a first-round pick in this year's draft. They visited with Vontae Davis recently and reportedly had interest in David Amerson before he signed with the Chiefs. With the added players in the secondary on their way, the Chiefs may have felt they had enough depth to trade Peters. The Rams do not have a second-rounder.

The trade will not be made "official" until the new league year starts on March 14.
