The 49ers have promoted vice president of player personnel Adam Peters to assistant GM, per a club announcement. Peters was up for the Panthers’ GM vacancy earlier this year, so this move should keep him satisfied until the next opportunity arises.
“Adam has earned this promotion, which is a result of his hard work and dedication to the 49er Way,” said 49ers GM John Lynch. “He has been a tremendous asset to our team and we look forward to Adam continuing to play an integral role in all aspects of football operations in our quest to compete for championships.”
Peters is entering his 19th season in the NFL. Before joining the Niners, the prior eight seasons (2009-16) with the Broncos, serving as their director of college scouting. During his time with the team, the 49ers have had their fair share of hits in the draft, including tight end George Kittle, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, linebacker Fred Warner, and defensive lineman Nick Bosa.
