Rams trade starting corner Marcus Peters to Ravens

The Rams are also received a fifth-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Entering the 2019 season, one of the biggest questions surrounding the Los Angeles Rams was whether the team should give in, and reward Marcus Peters with a hefty contract. The Rams also made a trade with Cleveland for offensive lineman Austin Corbett, a possible replacement for Joe Noteboom after the left guard's season-ending right knee injury two days ago. This season, the talented corner had just 14 tackles, two interceptions, and a touchdown.

In addition to losing Peters, the Rams placed Aqib Talib in IR this week with an injury to the coast.

Now, it appears as if the Rams never had plans of keeping him long term.

William and Kate's visit brought back memories for many Pakistanis who still love the late Lady Diana for her humanitarian work. Since arriving, the royal couple have been advocates for girls' education, visiting a girl's school in Islamabad.

Peters lands with the Ravens, who desperately need quality help in their secondary. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) has missed the past five games, and nickelback Tavon Young (neck) is out for the season.

Peters was an All-Pro in 2016 but has yet to replicate that level of success.

In dealing Young, who returns to the city where he starred for UCLA, the Ravens quickly moved on from a player who fell out of favor this season as the Ravens struggled to compensate for the free agency departure of Pro Bowl linebacker C.J. Mosley. He was a healthy scratch in Week 5. The former first-round pick was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 and began his National Football League career with back-to-back Pro Bowl nods. He has 13 tackles, including three tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits.
