Peters Among NFL's 10 Best New Additions

This offseason was filled with interesting moves, including big-name trades, notable acquisitions, and several releases. In light of all the headlines surrounding this year's free agency period and NFL Draft, NFL Network analyst and former NFL quarterback David Carr is listing the 10 best new additions for 2018 — including free agents, trade acquisitions, and rookies.

The Rams new cornerback Marcus Peters, acquired in a trade with the Chiefs, is one of the top 10 additions.

Rank No. 4: Marcus Peters, CB, Rams*

Old team: Kansas City Chiefs.

Les Snead had one of the best offseasons of any general manager as he added playmaker after playmaker. Quarterbacks often avoid Peters, who was shipped to Los Angeles via trade, unless they have a better-than-average WR1 to work with. Couple this young talent with Aqib Talib, and the Rams suddenly have one of the best cornerback tandems in the league, especially when playing behind a defensive front that already included Aaron Donald and just added Ndamukong Suh. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips must be licking his chops right now.
