Rams trade CB Marcus Peters to the Ravens

Rams trade CB Marcus Peters to the Ravens”

The Rams have traded the cornerback to the Ravens, Los Angeles announced Tuesday.

The pick will reportedly be a fifth-rounder.

Peters was in the final year of his contract, and as Ian Rapoport noted on NFL Network, the Ravens were interested in Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

Peters started all 16 regular-season games for the Rams in 2018, racking up 43 total tackles, eight passes defended and three interceptions, including one pick-6.

Marcus Peters #22 of the Los Angeles Rams enters the field prior to kickoff against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on September 29, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. What they need is a reinforcement or two on "D", where their pass rush has been lacking and their secondary has been done in by age, injuries and inconsistency.

The Ravens had more significant defensive needs than an outside cornerback. Nickell Robey-Coleman is the Rams' respected nickel back, and their roster also includes untested young defensive backs David Long Jr., Darious Williams and Dont'e Deayon. With nothing moving forward on that front, they made a decision to pursue Peters instead.

The Rams also lack depth at inside linebacker, where they haven't found a strong replacement for departed Super Bowl starter Mark Barron.
