Adam Peters Wikipedia- Peters, a native of California, was born in 1979, the same year the 49ers hired Bill Walsh. A 49ers fan since childhood, he joined the organization in 2017.
Peters has three Super Bowl rings to his name. But the 44-year-old acknowledges that his first two rings with the New England Patriots do not count. In an interview, the humble guy Peters said he hardly did anything, except drive guys to the airport.
He won his third ring with the Broncos, where his reputation grew as he ultimately landed his dream job with the 49ers. And now, after seven years with the 49ers, Peters might look to switch roles and teams.
According to recent reports, the Washington Commanders and Las Vegas Raiders have asked to interview the 49ers’ assistant general manager. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that both sides are interested in Adam taking the role of general manager.
In 2022, Peters had an interview with the New York Giants for the same position. But that move didn’t go through. There are reports that Adam is good friends with Bob Myers, the recently added consultant to the Commanders.
But Peters hasn’t given any hints as to whether he will accept or reject the offers. His decision may also depend on whether the 49ers can go all the way and win the Super Bowl title.
