The development of Marcus Peters and avoiding the sophomore slump is low key one of the most important parts of the Kansas City Chiefs training camp this year.
He has passed the early test. At the first day of KC Chiefs training camp on the fields of Missouri Western this weekend, Peters sniffed out a Tyler Bray pass and picked it off for what would’ve been a touchdown.
The Chiefs captured the play here:

We’ve seen this play before. Peters is a savvy player and he’s able to turn those great hips of his and keep an eye on the quarterback at times. I remember his interception against the Vikings last year where he planted and left his man in order to pick off a Teddy Bridgewater pass to another receiver because he was peeking at the quarterback. That’s what this pick reminds me of.
We probably don’t talk about it enough but the Chiefs need a repeat performance from Peters this year.
