While the Baltimore Ravens keep trying to find warm bodies to bolster their "thin" cornerback unit, the Las Vegas Raiders might complete a free-agency move involving a now-former member of the Ravens' secondary.
Marcus Peters, a free agent this summer, isn't expected to re-sign with the Ravens after arriving in Baltimore all the way back in 2019 and completing a 13-game season last year with the franchise, seemingly his last in Maryland.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported Friday that Peters will visit and work out for the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday.
If no unexpected issues pop up (say, anything health-related that could put Peters' 2023 season in peril), then the Raiders and the cornerback are expected to ink a deal ahead to Las Vegas' training camp scheduled to kick off next Wednesday.
Marcus Peters visited the Las Vegas Raiders back in May as echoed by beat reporter Vic Tafur of The Atheltic. The veteran cornerback decided to pass on signing a deal that early, though, wanting to explore the market in deeper detail while waiting for the best situation and deal to emerge.
If the Raiders end up signing Peters, then he would most probably turn into a day-one starter at one of the two CB positions in Las Vegas' secondary.
That would have been the case in Baltimore too, but Peters declined to extend his tenure with the Ravens and the Flock will have to do with Marlon Humphrey and free-agency signee Rock Ya-Sin next year.
Peters will play next season at age 30 and is coming off a season in Baltimore in which he racked up 47 tackles, a sack, and one interception. It's fair to say it wasn't his best campaign, with age probably starting to catch up to him.
The three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro will join the fourth different franchise in his career if he signs with the Raiders, having played for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams, and lastly the Baltimore Ravens.
