The 49ers enter the new league year with cornerback as the team’s most glaring need.
One of the game’s top cover men will be coming to the NFC West, as ESPN reports the Los Angeles Rams are in the final stages of a trade to acquire Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs.
The NFL Network reported the 49ers and Cleveland Browns were also interested in acquiring Peters.
The Rams’ move to acquire Peters likely means the club will not pursue re-signing Trumaine Johnson, who was tagged as Los Angeles’ franchise player last season with a one-year $16.7 million contract.
Johnson, 28, figures to be one of the more attractive on the market during the early negotiating period of March 12-14. Johnson (6-foot-2, 213 pounds) is a six-year veteran who has recorded 18 interceptions.
Peters, 25, has been one of the top play-makers at cornerback in his three seasons in the league with 19 interceptions.
Steph Curry turns 30 years old on Wednesday, but with the Warriors playing the Lakers, his friends and family decided to hold the party for him on Monday night.
Most of Curry's Warriors teammates attended the bash. Things must have gone late into the night because the team cancelled the planned practice for 11am on Tuesday.
Special guests included E-40, Paramore and Lecrae. Curry himself took a turn on the mic and belted out a few bars.
Based on the videos from the party, it appears Curry may have gotten a small yacht for a present.
Don't feel bad that you weren't invited. There were enough videos posted on Instagram Stories by Steph, his wife Ayesha, his sister Sydel, his brother Seth and E-40, among others. Check out some of the best here:

Curry No. 2: Epic 35-foot game-winner in OT vs Thunder on Feb. 27, 2016
The Warriors are locked in an epic battle against an Oklahoma City team featuring Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and it looks bad when Curry leaves in the third quarter after rolling his left ankle.
He not only returns but also conquers, scoring 46 points, including 12 3-pointers, punctuated by pulling up from 35 feet to sink the game-winner in OT. It is the biggest shot of the regular season.
