Giants reportedly naming a GM today; 49ers assistant GM Adam Peters a finalist

The New York Giants have been a whirlwind of a franchise, last making the playoffs in 2016, and going 22-59 during that time span.

In addition, they've churned through three head coaches in that time period with Bob McAdoo, Pat Shurmur, and Joe Judge, while keeping GM Dave Gettleman, who's struggled to identify top-tier talent in the draft, and has made questionable free agent decisions, which is why Judge was fired this offseason, and Gettleman "retired", just like Tom Coughlin a few years back.

San Francisco 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters, whose identified talent consistently over the past few years in the draft, is a finalist for New York's GM opening, having completed a second interview yesterday afternoon.

The Giants reportedly are naming their new GM today, per CBS Sports and ESPN, with three frontrunner candidates: Buffalo Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen, Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles, and Peters, all of whom received a second interview with the team.

Peters, 42, began his career as a member of the New England Patriots' scouting department, serving as a pro scout and an area scout over his six-year experience. Peters then moved to the Denver Broncos, where he spent the next eight years, elevating through the ranks as a scout before becoming their director of college scouting in 2016.

Peters has been with the 49ers for five years, having originally served as their Vice President of Player Personnel, before being promoted to assistant general manager last year.

With his background and expertise in the scouting area, losing Peters would be a huge blow for the 49ers. Even if the Giants don't offer him the job, Peters will likely receive many opportunities in the future, including a potential promotion from the 49ers to keep him in-house.

In a move that was expected since last month, the Jacksonville Jaguars have officially hired San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel Ethan Waugh as the team's assistant general manager. This offseason, Waugh was promoted from director of college scouting and football systems to his departing title with the 49ers, so the role was short-lived.

49ers missing from this 2022 season playoff prediction

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers should be pretty good in 2022, right? Yes, they are entering the upcoming season with a second-year starting quarterback who played just 178 snaps last season, and the interior of the offensive line is uncertain, but the rest of the core remains. San Francisco has been a playoff participant in two of the last three seasons, with an injury-plagued 2020 campaign being the exception. There is still star power with names like George Kittle, Trent Williams, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, and, hopefully, Deebo Samuel. Winning the NFC West over the favored defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams may be an uphill battle, but surely they will participate in postseason play, right? Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports doesn't believe so. He

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is preparing to enter his second NFL season, and likely his first as a full-time starter. He had two starts during his rookie campaign, but only because veteran Jimmy Garoppolo was injured. 49ers legend Bryant Young played on the defensive side of the football for 14 years, all with San Francisco. Young frustrated opposing quarterbacks during his illustrious career, bringing them down a team-record 89.5 times. What advice does the soon-to-be Hall of Fame defender have for the 49ers' 22-year-old quarterback? "He's a big kid," Young said Wednesday on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "I got a chance to meet him at the 49ers Foundation event earlier in the year. Not only is he a big, athletic kid with a
