Giants request permission to interview 49ers’ Adam Peters and Ran Carthon; Bears inquire too

Jan 10, 2022 at 5:38 PM--


On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that no one had reached out to the San Francisco 49ers to request an interview with a member of the team's staff.

"No one's told me that [a request has been made] yet today," Shanahan said.

That has changed.

The New York Giants have reportedly requested permission to speak with 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters and 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon, per Peter Schrager of NFL Media and FOX Sports.


Peters is expected to be a hot name for NFL teams seeking a bright mind to fill a general manager vacancy. Peters and Carthon joined general manager John Lynch's staff in 2017.

Peters joined San Francisco as a VP of player personnel. Before that, he was the Broncos director of college scouting and served multiple roles within Denver's scouting department. Carthon previously served as the director of player personnel with the St. Louis and Los Angles Rams. Before that, he was a scout with the Atlanta Falcons.

"We've got a good staff here," Shanahan said. "And what [Peters] has done for us in our five years here, and how much he's helped us build this, what Ran Carthon has done, we've got a lot of guys here who I feel very fortunate to have."

Former Giants general manager Dave Gettleman retired at the conclusion of New York's 2021 campaign.

Update: The Chicago Bears have also inquired about Carthon, per Albert Breer.

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said



The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

By David Bonilla

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season. However, it's not Tretter that Pro Football Focus analyst Ben Linsey believes would be a good signing by the 49ers. Instead,
