Kansas City Chiefs: Marcus Peters could be trade bait this offseason

Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters for Sunday's game against the Raiders

Chiefs Suspend Peters For Throwing Official's Flag

The Chiefs have suspended Marcus Peters for Sunday's game against Oakland after the volatile young cornerback's embarrassing tantrum during a last-minute loss to the Jets last weekend. Now the Chiefs will have to rely on a rotation of underwhelming cornerbacks like Kenneth Acker, Phillip Gaines, Terrance Mitchell and Steven Nelson to do the job Peters would normally do as well as man the station opposite him on the outside.

Peters was called for unsportsmanlike conduct with 2:15 left in the game after he tossed the flag that was thrown for defensive holding during the Jets' failed two-point converstion attempt.

Peters was then flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, and made a decision to head to Kansas City's locker room despite the fact that he had not been ejected from the game. He will not be allowed to practice with the team this week and will also foreit a game check.

"I wouldn't say that, I wouldn't tell you who it is going to be anyways", Sutton said.

Suspending Peters for this game could send a message that it's time for him to tone things down.

Next to Peters, Mitchell has taken the most snaps at cornerback this season. "It just depends how they roll coverages and do those kind of things". The university dismissed Peters from the team later in the season due to disciplinary issues.

United States senator resigns amid sexual misconduct allegations
The victor of a special election in November 2018 would serve through to the end of Mr Franken's term in January of 2021. On Wednesday, one woman said he forcibly tried to kiss her in 2006, an accusation he vehemently denied.

Quarterback Alex Smith said he officially learned of the Wednesday morning. "It gets to people and it's a tough situation. Coach made the decision though and we're going to to go with it. Stakes are too big right now with what we've got in front of us, the opportunity in front of us".

As far as a first rounder is concerned, Peters probably wouldn't be worth that to teams. Anytime you can get a piece back, it's nothing against anybody else, but those guys are starters for a reason.

It was midway through the second quarter in the Raiders' earlier victory over the Chiefs when a fight broke out after Peters was flagged for a late hit on Carr.

"I think we've got a good locker room, we've got a mature locker room", Smith said. "It's really the Raiders versus the Chiefs and we all have to adjust based on different guys being available or not".

Smith said he believe the team's leadership stands prepared to move on this week without Peters.

Relentlessly positive by nature, Carr isn't spending a lot of time over-thinking it, and in fact said he loves the experience of one of the NFL's most iconic and hostile venues. "We still have to go out there and execute our game plan".
