Others in the secondary like safety Earl Thomas III and cornerbacks Jimmy Smith, Brandon Carr and Marlon Humphrey have answered Peters’ questions, helping him get up to speed. Peters believes he’ll feel just as comfortable playing for the Ravens on Sunday as he did with the Rams last week.
“It does help for me playing Seattle already, because I kind of got the gist of what they want to do,” Peters said. “But I’m a pro, man. Pros, you have to come in, you have to do your job. I’ve been in a system like this coming from Kansas City. The only thing you really have to work on is just the terms and things like that, but I think I’ve got it down so that I’ll be able to play fast and do my thing. I’m going to be new, and the only thing that I ask is just, ‘Hey, let’s communicate.’ That’s the biggest thing, so we don’t have any busts out there.”
While Seattle’s CenturyLink Field is known for being loud, it should be quiet when the Ravens defense is on the field. Starting on the road could help Peters.
Peters is in the final year of his contract, leaving his long-term status with the Ravens uncertain. He spent his first three years with the Kansas City Chiefs before being traded to Los Angeles. Asked about his future, Peters said he would focus on the present before worrying about next season.
“I’ve been traded twice now,” Peters said. “My biggest thing is just keep doing what I do, and just control what I can control. Who knows what 26-year-old Marcus Peters would be doing in Oakland, California right now? I’m doing something that I love to do. I’m passionate about it. I’m able to take care of my family doing it. I’m just going to keep doing what I need to go.”
