While a healthy portion of Chiefs fans were unhappy about the trade that will send cornerback Marcus Peters to the Rams, there were plenty who weren't sad to see him on his way out.
One reason cited by those fans was Peters' perceived allergy to tackling.
During an interview with Michael Robinson on the NFL Network, Peters was asked to pick the best cornerbacks playing today (his choice at No. 1 is someone Chiefs fans know well). Robinson also asked Peters about his desire to avoid a tackle.
"Who said that?" Peters asked. "Who said I won't tackle?"
Never miss a local story.
Robinson said: "I'm asking you, what's up with tackling?"
As they were talking, a video showed Peters stripping the ball away from Jamaal Charles during a game last fall.
Peters pointed to the screen and said: "Right there, look."
Robinson countered: "Don't get me wrong, that's going to get the ball..."
"Sometimes you've got to make a business decision," Peters said. "It's a business decision."
"What do you mean a business decision?" Robinson said with a laugh. "Your business is to tackle."
"Yeah, but if he's running," Peters said, "other people have a job, too."
You can see the interview below, and the talk of tackling begins at the 2:38 mark:
