(NFL) The Kansas City Chiefs have finalized a trade agreement Friday to send cornerback Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams.

Terms of the deal have not yet been reported. 

The trade will not be made "official" until the new league year starts on March 14.

Peters made the All-Pro team in 2016 and won NFL defensive rookie of the year in 2015.

Despite his talent on the field, the Chiefs had reportedly become disenchanted by his behavior. Peters was suspended one game last season for throwing a penalty flag after a play then left the field without being ejected.

This deal comes less than a month after the Chiefs sent Alex Smith to Washington and will be receiving rising corner Kendall Fuller for Smith.

The warmest days of the week will be Monday night into Tuesday with plenty of clouds overhead. A disturbance will move in Monday night and Tuesday that will bring the chance for some more rain and snow to the area. Right now, it appears any snow accumulation will be minor. We'll be in the upper 30s by Tuesday thanks to the southeast winds picking up. It will be gusty at times to 30 mph.
