The Los Angeles Rams made the shocking decision to trade Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens in the middle of the day on Tuesday. Not only is Peters extremely talented, but Rams veteran corner Aqib Talib was just placed on injured reserve, making the timing of the bombshell a bit suspect.
Fans and pundits don’t fully understand it, and neither does San Francisco 49ers corner Richard Sherman, who summed up his reaction to the inter-division deal with this hilarious tweet.

You’re exactly right, Sherman. This trade is very much a head-scratcher.
Of course, he should be happy. The Rams are in the same division as San Francisco, and even though LA has been very beatable thus far, trading a talented corner like Marcus Peters makes them that much easier to match up with.

The funniest thing about this whole trade is the return Los Angeles got. A backup linebacker? We are talking about a player who was a healthy scratch a couple of weeks ago. How did we get here?
