3. Marcus Peters
Prior to last season, the Rams pulled off an unexpected move by acquiring Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs, mainly due to how much of a head case the cornerback appeared to be at times.

Talent wise, Peters had worked his way into being one of the best in the league at creating turnovers, and if he could manage to keep his cool, this move could have the potential to work wonders for Los Angeles.
Not to mention, the Rams would end up making another key move that offseason by pulling off a trade with the Denver Broncos for Aqib Talib to give the defense a new dynamic duo to work with.
During their first season of action together, there were plenty of good moments for the two cornerbacks, although there was a brief period in which Peters struggled a bit while Talib was sidelined with an injury.
Since Talib is up there in age (33), Peters seems like the better of the two when it comes to more likely to receive an extension from the Rams since he will only turn 27 in January.
Exercising Peters’ fifth-year option before the 2018 season was an easy decision to make at the time, and if Los Angeles believes the cornerback deserves to be part of the team’s long-term plans, an extension taking place before the end of 2019 may not be a bad idea either.
