Keenan Allen: Chiefs CB Marcus Peters is “happy I’m not playing this week!”

New, comments

Well, Keenan didn’t call him out by name, but we know who he’s talking about and so does Marcus Peters.

San Diego Chargers star wide receiver Keenan Allen, who was placed on Injured Reserve after suffering an injury in the first half of the team’s Week 1 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, had something to say about cornerback Marcus Peters.

Now, at this point in his career, Peters is one of the more talented defensive backs in the NFL and certainly one of the most dangerous when it comes to creating turnovers. However, he has not enjoyed great success when facing the Chargers’ #13.

And because that release is so pretty, here is a closer view of it:

Allen may not have the top-end speed of some of the league’s other #1 wide receivers, but his route running is often times simply unfair and he can make even the best defensive backs look like they do not belong on any given play. Peters is a competitor and not the type to shrink from a challenge, but it’s hard to imagine he’s not at least a little relieved that he won’t have to chase Allen around the field.
