The Kansas City Chiefs have finalized a trade that will send Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams, two sources confirmed to The Star on Friday. Peters, 25, was suspended a game for his on-field behavior in 2017 and was criticized by fans for protesting during the national anthem.
The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade one of their best players, cornerback Marcus Peters, and it’s hard to ignore the suspicion this has less to do with football than chairman Clark Hunt’s discomfort with Peters’ protests during the national anthem and general outspokenness.
The Chiefs announced Thursday that Kansas City is one of five locations to host the draft in either 2019 or 2020. The other finalists are Denver, Las Vegas, Nashville and Cleveland, which has a combined bid with Canton, Ohio.
The Chiefs announced Tuesday that they will allow Derrick Johnson to become a free agent, which likely means he’ll never play for the team again. Here are four of the biggest hits from Johnson’s 13-seasons with the Chiefs.
On Tuesday, the Chiefs announced that Derrick Johnson won't return in 2018, and three-fourths of the A-Team (Sam Mellinger, Blair Kerkhoff and Terez Paylor) gathered to appreciate everything he brought to the table for the last 13 years, and how the Chiefs plan on replacing him going forward.
An Ohio woman told police that Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt “shoved and pushed” her over the weekend, but a second police report lists her as a suspect. Cleveland police determined two reports would be written after speaking to all parties and obtaining conflicting information.
