The Rams switched the cornerback Marcus Peters for the Ravens in the middle of the 2019 season, and Peters still has a problem with how it all happened.
On the same day that the Rams switched Peters, they switched to cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and Peters says he considers it a slap in the face that the Rams saw it as an upgrade.
“F— them,” said Peters on the Aqib Talib podcast, via ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “I felt disrespected. In the sense that, yes, you can change me. This is part of the business. But two minutes later, you bring in another guy who does the same thing … I do it, maybe a little differently. If we want to play this comparison game, I’ll do a little more. That was disrespectful to me. “
Just a few weeks after the Rams negotiated it with the Ravens, Peters intercepted a pass in the Ravens’ victory over the Rams. The Rams and Ravens will meet again in 2021, and Peters will be eager to show the Rams again that they shouldn’t have negotiated it.
