49ers hire Broncos’ Adam Peters as VP of player personnel

Jan 31, 2017 at 7:36 AM--


New San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has made his first hire, bringing in former Denver Broncos director of college scouting Adam Peters to serve as the team's vice president of player personnel, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.


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 chose not to do so. Peters was well respected within the Broncos organization and considered to be a potential general manager candidate for some NFL team in the near future.

Prior to his previous role with Denver, 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.

There has also been talk that former Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik would join the 49ers front office in some capacity.

Because of Lynch's lack of front office experience, the 49ers will try to surround the first-time general manager and former NFL safety with as much quality talent as possible. It has already been reported that assistant general manager Tom Gamble would be retained at least through the draft in April, giving himself an opportunity to prove himself to Lynch.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the fan portion of Pro Bowl voting. He's followed by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. That probably won't come as a surprise to many. What might be surprising is that just one San Francisco 49ers player is among those leading by position. That would be fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who is obviously deserving. But what about the others? Yes, the 49ers are 4-6 and may not be able to stack enough wins down the stretch to sneak into the playoffs, but some names are deserving. The first name that comes to mind is probably star linebacker Fred Warner, who leads the team in tackles. Green Bay Packers quarterback
