The Chiefs' move of Marcus Peters coupled with their earlier trade of Alex Smith makes the Broncos' pursuit of Kirk Cousins all the more important.
With the trade between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Rams that sent cornerback Marcus Peters to the West Coast for some draft picks, high-profile free agent cornerback Trumaine Johnson is poised to hit the market.
Just like the Smith trade, the deal between the Chiefs and the Rams can not become official until the new league year begins March 14.
Peters, 25, is a two-time Pro Bowler and a 2016 All-Pro player.
Though there were some quiet rumblings the past few weeks about Peters potentially being traded, the report still came as a surprise to many.
Peters has drawn the ire of some fans for refusing to stand for the national anthem, even though he has never explained why he is protesting.

The threat came just two days after a former student opened fire and killed 17 students and faculty at a Florida high school. On Feb. 15, a student who had been suspended told his mother he wanted a school administrator dead, the sheriff said.
Only time will tell if a fresh start in the City of Angels will work out for Peters and the Rams.
But Peters also joins the Rams with some character concerns.
Despite having a projected $74 million in free agency, per Over the Cap, general manager Chris Ballard won't overpay for a free agent just to fill a need as he believes in developing talent through the NFL Draft.
The 25-year-old will cost $1.74 million toward the salary cap this season, which is almost one-tenth of Johnson's cap hit last year.
Now, Peters goes to an LA team where he will play under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
The Chiefs will obtain a potential replacement for Peters when the Smith deal becomes official. But the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks, not players, in return, according to Schefter's sources. But it's unknown whether those will occur in April's draft or in following years.
