Panthers conducting second interview with 49ers exec Adam Peters

Jan 12, 2021 at 8:48 AM--


According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Carolina Panthers will be holding second interviews with San Francisco 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters and Tennessee Titans director of player personnel Monti Ossenfort.


Earlier today, Jason La Canfora reported that Peters remains among the top candidates for the general manager opening with the Carolina Panthers. According to the CBS Sports writer, the industry expects the Panthers to lean toward Peters or Seattle Seahawks VP of football operations Scott Fitterer. Peters first spoke with the Panthers last week while Fitterer had his Zoom interview on Monday.


La Canfora notes that Panthers head coach Matt Rhule, Peters, and Fitterer share the same agent. ESPN's Adam Schefter adds that Fitterer will have an in-person interview with the Panthers on Wednesday.


Peters has spent the past four seasons with the 49ers, working closely with general manager John Lynch to build a roster that reached the Super Bowl during the 2019 season. Peters was among the first hires by Lynch in 2017. He spent his previous eight seasons (2009-16) with the Denver Broncos.

Note: This article has been updated to include the plans for a second interview with Peters.

Orlovsky believes 49ers become Super Bowl contenders with Carson Wentz

There is no indication that the San Francisco 49ers are serious about Carson Wentz. There was a report that the team inquired about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, but that may have just been general manager John Lynch and company doing their due diligence. It's always worth knowing the going rate for a former starting NFL quarterback, after all. Wentz isn't a fan-favorite trade candidate either. He was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league last season. His 65.0 overall Pro Football Focus grade was a career-low. One ESPN analyst feels Wentz paired with the 49ers could be a game-changer, though. Former quarterback Dan Orlovsky recently said that the Eagles passer with the Indianapolis Colts or San Francisco would make either team a Super Bowl
