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.

San Francisco 49ers rookie wideout Danny Gray spoke with the media for the first time since his draft interview, as he prepared for the 49ers' rookie minicamp, which is slated to begin on Friday. Gray, who was selected with the last pick in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 105th overall, is a player with electrifying straight-line speed, which was confirmed with his 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. However, Gray's talents aren't limited to just his speed; he works well with the ball in his hands and can be physical after the catch, despite his relatively slight 186-pound frame. When addressing his skillset, Gray acknowledged the biggest development over his

The San Francisco 49ers were considered by many as one of the winners of the undrafted free agent process, signing centers Dohnovan West and Jason Poe alongside a slew of potential contributors to round out their 90-man roster.

He quickly signed with the 49ers, who reportedly gave him $100,000 in guaranteed money with a $10,000 signing bonus. Why did West go undrafted? Speaking to the media for the first time as a 49er, West dove into the offseason
