Ravens’ Marcus Peters’ NSFW message to Rams after 2019 trade

Ravens, Marcus Peters,Rams

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters is still bitter about the trade that sent him from the Los Angeles Rams to Baltimore in 2019.

Peters unleashed on the Rams organization during an interview on former Rams cornerback Aqib Talib’s Catchin’ Fades podcast. He said he felt disrespected by L.A.’s decision to dump him only to later acquire Jalen Ramsey.

The two-time All-Pro added he didn’t feel like he was one of the reasons the Rams were struggling to make progress after reaching the Super Bowl in 2018.

Peters has a point, even if he is now a valued member of the Ravens secondary.

The Rams acquired the 28-year-old from the Kansas City Chiefs ahead of the 2018 campaign. Peters was a defensive playmaker in L.A.’s secondary, recording three interceptions and bringing one back for a score.

Los Angeles’ front office then posited some interest in extending Peters, with head coach Sean McVay suggesting there was momentum on that front. There seemed to be that much more momentum after Peters tallied a pair of interceptions and four passes defended in his first six games with the Rams. Alas, it was not to be.

The Rams sent Peters to the Ravens, instead opting to later acquire Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Still, the move has worked out for both sides.

Peters has been one of the best corners in the NFL with the Ravens. He had four more interceptions and nine passes defended in 2020. Ramsey, meanwhile, was named First Team All-Pro in his first full season with the Rams.

Peters might still feel some animosity towards the Rams organization. But the Ravens are most certainly glad he is part of their secondary. They showed as much by signing Peters to an extension last winter.
