Raiders Sign Interesting Veteran Cornerback

After about a month of speculation, the Las Vegas Raiders and former All-Pro cornerback Marcus Peters to a one-year deal.





Peters In Baltimore


Peters played for the Baltimore Ravens for the last three seasons. With the Ravens, Peters had one interception, six passes defended, forced two fumbles, and had two fumble recoveries, along with 47 tackles.


The Ravens acquired Peters from the Rams via a midseason trade in 2019. He made his last All-Pro team that season. He remained in Baltimore through last season, a stint that included missing the entire 2021 campaign because of an ACL tear.


A Crowded Raiders CB Room


Peters will add more competition to a crowded Raiders cornerback room. This offseason, the Raiders cornerbacks Brandon Facyson, Duke Shelley, and David Long Jr. drafted Jokorian Bennett to accompany Nate Hobbs, Sam Webb, and Amik Robertson.


Las Vegas will have a lot of competition at the cornerback position in training camp, which is much needed. The Raiders only had six interceptions last season, and they will need to increase that number if they want to compete in the AFC West.


Peters will be a solid upgrade to a Raiders passing defense that ranked 29th in the NFL, allowing 242.9 passing yards per game.


The Raiders will need Peters healthy and hope he can return to his Pro Bowl; if that happens, the Raiders' defense could be much better. Also, the Raiders need a player like Peters, who plays passionately and will not back down from anybody. Las Vegas needs those type of players on their defense.


Peters has played in the NFL for eight seasons. Peters has played for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams, and the Ravens. He has made the Pro Bowl three times and has been a two-time All-pro member.


Peters was named 2015 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year when he intercepted eight passes and had 26 passes defended for the Chiefs.


Peters has 32 interceptions, 92 passes defended, and 11 forced fumbles in his career.
