Just over three weeks ago a major trade rocked the NFL world. The Washington Redskins acquired for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith in exchange for a young star corner in Kendall Fuller, and a third round pick in the 2018 draft.

But the Chiefs weren't done. According to Adam Schefter, Kansas City is in the works of yet another trade even though the deal cannot officially be completed until the start of the new league year on March 14.

Kansas City is sending Pro Bowl corner Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams. Schefter is reporting the deal is expected to be complete by the end of the day today.

As for the compensation the Chiefs will receive, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting Los Angeles will ship a "package" of draft picks to Kansas City.

Kansas City selected Marcus Peters with the No. 18 pick in the 2015 draft. During his three seasons with the Chiefs, there has been a long history of character concerns and reports of Peters wanting out.

Just last season Peters was suspended by the team after he launched a penalty flag into the stands. Peters disagreed with a call from the ref in Kansas City's game against the Jets and threw the flag into the stands before walking off the field.

The former first round pick still has one year left on his rookie contract, which will pay him just under $1.75 million for the 2018 season.
