PFT: 49ers will interview Broncos’ Adam Peters

Jan 30, 2017 at 3:54 PM--


Adam Peters is the director of college scouting for the Denver Broncos and an important part of their front office. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Peters will interview with the 49ers to become their director of player personnel.

Since Peters would not be getting full control of the roster, Broncos general manager John Elway had the power to block the request to interview Peters, but apparently chose not to do so. "The Broncos, however, ultimately decided not to stand in Peters' way in order to foster a sense that upward mobility will be rewarded — even if that means losing someone they'd otherwise prefer to keep," reports Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

We could be seeing the first example of the respect that new 49ers general manager John Lynch has throughout the league. Lynch is a close friend of Elway's, who shares a mutual respect for the 49ers general manager. There has also been talk that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik would join the 49ers front office in some capacity.

Prior to his current role, Peters was the club's assistant director of college scouting from 2014 until 2015 following three years as a national scout and two seasons scouting the Western region for the Broncos. During his time in the NFL, he has been part of three Super Bowls.

"In his first seven years with Denver, Peters helped the team acquire 27 players through the draft and college free agency that were members of the Super Bowl 50 championship roster," says the official Broncos website.

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

Why CBS Sports says the 49ers had the fourth-best offseason in the NFL

How do you think the San Francisco 49ers offseason has gone from a personnel perspective? The team lost a few veteran leaders in defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, and offensive tackle Joe Staley. The first was traded away, so it wasn't the player's decision to leave. The second opted to sign with the New Orleans Saints in free agency. The third retired. For any other team, these losses might have been significant. But the 49ers own a deep roster, an embarrassment of riches at certain positions. That helped the Kyle Shanahan-led squad reach the Super Bowl in year three of a massive roster overhaul. As for the losses themselves, Shanahan and general manager John Lynch worked diligently to fill the voids. With the first

It's Super Bowl or bust for the San Francisco 49ers, as it probably should be. That's what the team's head coach, Kyle Shanahan, is thinking. That's what his players are thinking. Shanahan recently spoke with team radio voice Greg Papa for the 49ers' State of the Franchise event and shared exactly what his expectations are for the upcoming season. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment (in the Super Bowl). We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job." Those comments irked Mike Florio of Pro Football
