ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Los Angeles Rams are finalizing a trade for Kansas City Chiefs CB Marcus Peters:

It’s certainly a megatrade that would fill a need, the second in as many offseasons following last year’s late offseason move for WR Sammy Watkins.

As the Rams approach free agency with the impending contract negotiations for CB Trumaine Johnson at the fore, Peters would be a more than competent replacement if those negotiations lead to Tru’s exit. A trade would also open up a world of options in the 2018 NFL Draft beyond just the first-round cornerback selection that most mock drafts have projected to this point.

Now it’s not a done deal. As Schefter notes, this trade is still in the final stages and not official. We’ve seen things reach the reportable stage and then break down before, so don’t go laying your mortgage on this.

Just stay tuned to TST for more throughout the day. And keep paying your mortgage.

Sounds like the Chiefs wanted OLB Robert Quinn, but the Rams said no. Perhaps we can rule out Quinn as a cap casualty?

Sounds like it’s a done deal though:
