49ers Hire Adam Peters as VP of Player Personnel

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Tuesday that the organization has agreed to terms with Adam Peters to become the team's vice president of player personnel.

"When it comes to stars in this industry, Adam Peters is certainly one of them," 49ers General Manager John Lynch said. "He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from two incredibly successful organizations, and is one of the most respected talent evaluators in the National Football League. I have known Adam for several years and have great confidence that his drive, work ethic and skill set will be instrumental to the 49ers organization. I know how much John Elway and the Broncos organization value and respect Adam, and I am very grateful that they have allowed him to pursue such a tremendous opportunity. We are thrilled to have Adam join the team and look forward to creating something special together."

A veteran of 14 NFL seasons with the New England Patriots (2003-08) and the Denver Broncos (2009-16), Peters has been part of three Super Bowls championships, five conference titles and 10 division crowns.

Peters joins the 49ers after spending the previous eight seasons (2009-16) in Denver. In 2016, he was named the Broncos director of college scouting after spending two seasons as the team's assistant director of college scouting (2014-15). Peters spent three years as a national scout (2011-13) after originally joining the Broncos as a regional scout in 2009.

As a member of Denver's personnel department, Peters helped the team acquire 27 players through the draft and college free agency that were vital members of the Super Bowl 50 championship roster.

Peters joined the Broncos after spending six years (2003-08) in New England. In his first two seasons with the Patriots as a scouting assistant, he was a part of two Super Bowl championships (XXXVIII in 2003 and XXXIX in 2004). In 2005, he handled pro scouting duties for the team before serving his final three seasons (2006-08) with the Patriots as an area scout.

Prior to the NFL, Peters spent one season (2002) as a football operations graduate assistant at UCLA after playing defensive end for the Bruins from 1999-2001. He transferred to UCLA from West Valley Junior College (Saratoga, CA), where he played tight end for two seasons (1997-98) and earned all-conference honors. A native of Cupertino, CA, Peters attended Monta Visa High School where he was a two-sport standout in football and baseball during his prep career.
