The Kansas City Chiefs announced the signing of first-round pick CB Marcus Peters to a four-year contract on Friday.
- The Chiefs also signed third-round picks WR Chris Conley and CB Steven Nelson to four-year deals as well.
- Undrafted free agent DT Charles Tuaau was signed to their roster as well.
The Chiefs really needed to add some depth at cornerback, and Peters was considered by some evaluators to be the best cornerback in this year’s draft class. However, there are some obvious off-the-field concerns with Peters.
According to OverTheCap.com, Peters is projected to receive a four-year contract worth $9,584,160, which includes a signing bonus of $5,230,296.
During his three years at Washington, Peters recorded 129 tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, 11 interceptions, a forced fumble, two defensive touchdowns and 27 pass defenses.
