Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters is likely taking his controversial antics to Los Angeles, according to a report from two ESPN insiders.

Trades can not become official until new league year beings on March 14. However, the Rams managed to keep Quinn while landing Peters in the process. The ball-hawking cover man compiled 19 interceptions in just three seasons.

Peters, who is one of the better cornerbacks in the league but became a distraction in Kansas City last season, was seen as expendable.

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. During the game at Houston, teammates appeared to hold back an emotional Peters on the sideline from confronting a coach.

While the price-tag for Peters in terms of draft picks is yet to be revealed, we do know that LA won't be paying his full contract, per USA TODAY's Cameron DaSilva.
