The Rams acquired Peters in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs before the 2018 season. The 26-year-old is in the final year of his contract.

Peters is making $5.8 million this season before becoming a free agent in March.

He appeared in six games, including six starts, with the Rams before this trade. Peters has 14 tackles, including one tackle for a loss.

In addition, he has two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He also has one fumble recovery and four pass deflections.

The Rams have liked Young and get to work with him now. Plus, they save money by making this deal.

Young returns to the Los Angeles area after playing college at UCLA. He was a fourth round pick by the Ravens in the 2018 NFL Draft.

This season, he has appeared in five games, including three starts. He has 13 tackles, including three tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits.

He also has one fumble recovery this season.
