Panthers pass on 49ers exec Adam Peters for GM job; Martin Mayhew to interview with Washington

Jan 14, 2021 at 9:25 AM--


Update: NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Carolina Panthers are expected to hire Seattle Seahawks VP of football operations Scott Fitterer as the team's new general manager, passing on others, including the San Francisco 49ers' VP of player personnel, Adam Peters.


The original story is below.



San Francisco 49ers fans might be inching closer to a sigh of relief. It looked like there was a good chance that the team might lose one or both of its two top executives in Adam Peters and Martin Mayhew. Peters was reportedly among the final four candidates for the Carolina Panthers' general manager job, while Washington has expressed interest in Mayhew.

Mayhew will reportedly interview with Washington on Friday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.


Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports is indicating that Peters may be out of the running in Carolina, noting that the decision there is closer to being down to the final three candidates — Tennessee Titans director of player personnel Monti Ossenfort, Kansas City Chiefs assistant director of player personnel Ryan Poles, and Seattle Seahawks VP of football operations Scott Fitterer.


If true, that would mean that the VP of player personnel is no longer among those being seriously considered, which means that 49ers general manager John Lynch might be able to retain at least one of his top lieutenants.

NFL Media analyst Charley Casserly released his first mock draft and has the San Francisco 49ers landing his top-rated pass rusher, Kwity Paye of Michigan, with the No. 12 overall pick.

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
