The Los Angeles Rams will face a familiar face in Marcus Peters on Monday with the Baltimore Ravens coming to town.
Back in October, the Los Angeles Rams made a surprise move out of nowhere by sending Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens in a trade before eventually acquiring Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After looking at all of the work put in by Peters with the Rams dating back to the 2018 season, it was easy to assume the cornerback was upset with the decision at the first, especially when seeing how many teammates he became close with.
But when seeing how things have worked out for both parties, there should be no hard feelings when Peters takes on his former team on Monday night as a member of the Ravens.
If anything, Peters could be the one that benefits the most from the situation down the road since Baltimore is currently battling for the top playoff seed in the AFC while Los Angeles wouldn’t even be participating if the regular season were to end today.
In comparison, Ramsey is clearly an upgrade over Peters, and the Rams hope this decision will eventually be worth it in the long run, but also the situation isn’t a reason for either party to hold negative feelings towards one another once Monday arrives.
Peters may be feeling a little extra motivation on his end to go out and prove Los Angeles made a mistake by sending him to Baltimore, but even he knows the offense of the Rams will certainly keep him busy with all of the weapons to work with in the passing game.
Looking at the other angle, does this mean Los Angeles could end up with an advantage for being familiar with Peters and his style of play?
Time will tell since Monday’s game is only a few days away, but at least Peters facing the Rams as a member of the Ravens adds another interesting factor to Week 12.
Baltimore’s defense has once again made a strong case for being one of the top units in the league, and when looking at how quickly Peters found a way to make an impact, his presence has clearly made the unit even more dangerous since the trade.
