2. Peters is in the perfect situation.
Marcus Peters is in the perfect situation in Baltimore. A player that the Rams traded away for next to nothing is all the sudden one of the more important players Baltimore has. Peters has fit right in and has played his best football. He isn’t a trouble maker or a locker room disturbance. He isn’t unfocused at all, instead he’s locked in. Peters has made a habit out of toying with the head of quarterbacks. This is a complete re-branding for Peters. He’s once again the shutdown corner he was always supposed to be.
Peters has made some of the most impressive plays of the year. His pick six against the Seattle Seahawks was a game changer. When he knocked the ball away to end the Bills game, it was game saving coverage. Peters has been a shot in the arm to the Ravens, yet the Ravens have been a shot in the arm to his career.
Before this trade there were many Ravens fans desperate to get Jalen Ramsey. Now the Los Angeles Rams look like they were in the wrong for parting with Peters and spending so much to get Ramsey without a long term deal. Many would have scoffed at the idea that trading for Peters would give the Ravens two top five comebacks, but that is exactly what they have.
All Peters needed was the right coach, the right culture and a team that believed in him. The Ravens check all the boxes for what he needs from his employer. Peters is perfect for the Ravens and the Ravens are perfect for Peters. Peters is a big personality with swagger and a chip on his shoulder. The Ravens, if you haven’t noticed are all about that kind of player.
