Marcus Peters named NFL's defensive rookie of the year

New, comments

We knew this was coming. Kansas City Chiefs rookie cornerback Marcus Peters has been named the NFL's defensive rookie of the year. This was not a surprise at all as pretty much everyone it seemed was predicting Peters, the rookie out of Washington, would win this.

Peters had a terrific season for the Chiefs this year. We knew he was good as a first round pick last April but we found out last fall that he was a playmaker with eight interceptions.
