Although the Raiders have signed two-time Associated Press First-team All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection cornerback Marcus Peters, the team announced Monday.
Peters, 30, was a free agent after playing for the Baltimore Ravens for four years. Before that, where he began his career as a first-round pick with the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. He was the 2015 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
However, due to a torn ACL, he missed the 2022 season. Multiple media reports indicate that this is a one-year deal. During his career, Peters recorded 346 tackles (284 solo), two sacks, 32 interceptions, 92 defensive passes, 12 forced fumbles, 10 fumble recoveries, and seven defensive touchdowns.
Since entering the NFL in 2015, while his 92-pass defense ranks fourth over that span, Peters owns the league’s most takeaways (42), INT return touchdowns (6), INT (32), INT return yards (822), and defensive touchdowns (7).

However, since he entered the league in 2015, his three postseason interceptions are also tied for the most in the NFL.
Before the Raiders took Peters, Pro Football Network ranked their defense 31st in the league going into the 2023 season. He has a tremendous pass rush, and the addition of Peters could give him rush time to get to the quarterback.
