49ers were interested in Marcus Peters before he was traded to Rams

Earlier this week, the love affair between the Kansas City Chiefs and Marcus Peters had seemingly soured and the franchise made it known they were fielding calls about a possible trade.

The Kansas City Chiefs do play the Los Angeles Rams this season for what it's worth. In fact, he was selected by the Chiefs one pick after the 49ers drafted defensive lineman Arik Armstead with the 17th-overall pick. In January, the Chiefs traded Pro Bowl quarterback Alex Smith to Washington in exchange for draft picks and young, talented cornerback Kendall Fuller.

Trades can not become official until new league year beings on March 14.

Peters had been with the Chiefs for three seasons, he intercepted 19 passes and forced six fumbles.

The Rams' slot cornerback, Nickell Robey-Coleman, also is expected to hit free agency, and No. 2 cornerback Kayvon Webster will be trying to return from a ruptured Achilles tendon sustained in December.

Despite his talent on the field, the Chiefs had reportedly become disenchanted by his behavior.

In 2017, Marcus Peters was suspended by Andy Reid for one game after he tossed a penalty flag into the stands in their Week 13 game against the Jets. The NFL Network ranked Peters as the No. 32 player in the league in 2017. And although Davis left the Bay Area without a deal after meeting with Oakland and the 49ers, there are several other free agent cornerbacks for the Raiders to consider in 2018, namely former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson.

There's nothing concrete out there telling us exactly what Los Angeles gave up to add Peters to the mix.
