The 49ers and General Manager John Lynch today announced that Adam Peters has been promoted to Assistant General Manager.
“Adam has earned this promotion, which is a result of his hard work and dedication to the 49er Way,” said 49ers General Manager 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, having spent the previous four as vice president of player personnel for the 49ers. He joined San Francisco after spending the prior eight seasons (2009-16) with the Denver Broncos.
Peters was part of the original brain trust the 49ers hired along with former Detroit Lions (and new General Manager of the Washington Football Team) Martin Mayhew and Ran Carthon, who is the 49ers current director of pro personnel.
With their guidance and the help of head coach Kyle Shanahan and the rest of the coaching staff, the 49ers have worked as a cohesive unit to create one of the best rosters in the NFL. Utilizing the NFL Draft have given the 49ers the likes of TE George Kittle, LB Fred Warner, WR Deebo Samuel, T Mike McGlinchey, DT Javon Kinlaw, WR Brandon Aiyuk and 2019 Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year DL Nick Bosa, among others.
Through free agency, the team added key contributors such as CB Richard Sherman, T Trent Williams, FB Kyle Juszczyk and K Robbie Gould, while QB Jimmy Garoppolo and G Laken Tomlinson were acquired via trade.
Peters looks to take an increased workload as the 49ers are weeks away from the 2021 NFL Draft.
