49ers never made a trade offer for Marcus Peters

Peters was originally the 18th overall pick out of Washington in 2015 and will cost $3.05 million toward the salary cap this season.

ESPN.com first reported the trade, which will not become official until the start of the new league year on March 14.

As of the time of this writing, the haul the Chiefs received for Peters is unknown, but if they didn't come away with the Rams' top draft choice in 2018, it was probably too low of a price to accept for the Pro Bowl corner. But now, with Peters, the Los Angeles Rams have opened up a brand new door of options to select in the first round.

The other concern is how much of a contract that Johnson will command in free agency after playing the past two seasons with the Rams under the franchise tag.

Enter the Browns, who have money to spend, a need at cornerback, and a familiarity with Johnson as current defensive coordinator Gregg Williams coached Johnson with the Rams from 2014 through 2016. Their No. 2 cornerback, Kayvon Webster, ruptured an Achilles tendon in December.

Prior to Friday's developments, a senior Anbang executive had said he did not expect Wu to ever be released from detention. Early investors included a state-owned automaker, an oil company and a mix of rural villagers and small business owners.

By trading for Peters, the Rams are replacing one ball hawk (Trumaine Johnson) with an even better one. It also helps them sign defensive tackle Aaron Donald to an extension that is expected to eventually make him the game's highest-paid defensive player.

Peters had been with the Chiefs for three seasons, he intercepted 19 passes and forced six fumbles.

From 2015 to 2017, Peters' combination of sacks, forced fumbles and interceptions (25) easily led the National Football League, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Peters had several issues last season.

Late in the fourth quarter of a 38-31 loss to the New York Jets, Peters was upset at a penalty and picked up the referee's flag and threw it into the stands. The Rams are hopeful that a change of scenery can help fix that.
