CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora revealed new information regarding the Marcus Peters trade situation early Wednesday afternoon in his NFL notes article.

From what I am hearing from other NFL teams, the Chiefs haven’t made an overture toward trading Marcus Peters to this point, but other clubs anticipate his name coming up next week at the combine. Owner Clark Hunt has some concerns with Peters’ actions last season, as I hear it, and some of his unusual behavior during games, and he might not be long for Kansas City.
To recap, the Peters trade rumors began with an article over the weekend from Pro Football Talk, continued with a tweet from La Canfora, but were largely refuted by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.
Wednesday’s piece is of note because this is the first time anyone in the mainstream media has mentioned the potential of Chiefs owner Clark Hunt having a problem with some of Peters’ actions, which we already discussed in our article evaluating the situation here.
The bottom line with Peters is that he is a player with such high value the cost for teams around the league to acquire him would be very expensive. La Canfora, in the same piece, actually pondered if the Seahawks could be a potential landing spot.
Would a team like Seattle – who watched Peters play college ball in its backyard and who is often willing to take on risky players and who could need a cheap playmaking corner with its defense being re-shaped this offseason – be among those who make a good potential trade fit?
I think it is important to stay on top of the Peters situation, so whenever there is new information, we will share it here.
