Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters returns an interception during the team's 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium on December 16, 2017. Since then, Peters has been selected to two Pro Bowls (2015, 2016) and named a first-team All-Pro in 2016. For the Chiefs, however, that wasn't enough to keep him in Kansas City, a fairly stunning development. The Chiefs did so by trading for Kendall Fuller and signing free agent David Amerson, but with Peters gone, aren't the Chiefs in the same place they were in 2017? However, backroom dealing has been happening for weeks, and on Friday, the league was shaken up by the Kansas City Chiefs' second blockbuster trade since their playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans in January. In his three NFL seasons, he's racked up 19 interceptions and another two in the postseason, which has easily outclassed the rest of the league. Johnson posted 193 tackles (162 solo), three fumble recoveries, one forced fumble, 10 interceptions and 41 passes defensed between 2015-17.

Peters' decision to not standing during the national anthem, however, drew the most controversy. The writing has been on the wall, especially after Andy Reid opted to suspend Peters for a game this past season. We all know he grew up as a Raiders fan and while this trade doesn't get him to Oakland, it puts him back in his home state of California.
