The chatter about the Chiefs being open to trading cornerback Marcus Peters made it to the NFL Network on Tuesday.

Reporter Mike Garafolo was asked by Andrew Siciliano on “Up To The Minute” about the talk, which started Sunday when Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk said people around the NFL wondered if the Chiefs would trade Peters.

Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com tweeted Monday that “Marcus Peters may not be long for KC.”

Garafolo said that he and Ian Rapoport are looking into the talk.

“No one has told us that it’s accurate,” Garafolo said. “Of course, no one has told us that it’s not accurate or that it couldn’t happen here. ...

“From what Ian and I are told from people involved with the Chiefs and also people who would have spoken to the Chiefs about it, there have been no discussions. It’s just something down the line that, don’t rule it out basically. ... I wouldn’t rule it out but I’m thinking right now Marcus Peters remains a Chief.”

Peters, 25, has 19 interceptions in his three seasons in the NFL.
