On Black Monday, NFL teams are quickly revamping their coaching staffs and front offices, and one San Francisco 49er is already popular.
Washington Commanders and Las Vegas Raiders allegedly want to interview assistant general manager Adam Peters for GM positions.
Albert Breer of the MMQB claimed that the Commanders will interview Peters on Tuesday or Wednesday, while Adam Schefter of ESPN revealed the Raiders' interest.
The NFL has employed Peters for 21 years. He became an assistant GM in 2021 after joining the 49ers as VP of player personnel in 2016. His former teams were the Patriots (2003-08) and Broncos (2009-16).
Peters has had offseason GM conversations before. Last January, NBC Sports Bay Area 49ers insider Matt Maiocco claimed that Peters refused Titans and Cardinals interview requests.
The Commanders may have an edge in pursuing Peters. The ownership group hired former Golden State Warriors and Minnesota Vikings GMs Bob Myers and Rick Spielman to help find a new head coach and head of football operations. Myers and Peters, from Cupertino, Calif., attended Monte Vista High School and UCLA.
Washington acted fast after Sunday's season finale. The team fired Ron Rivera on Monday morning after another losing season and has reportedly requested interviews with Peters, Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, Lions defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn, Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, Baltimore Ravens associate head coach and defensive line coach Anthony Weaver, Chicago Bears assistant GM Ian Cunningham, and Kansas City Chiefs assistant GM Mike Borgonzi.
The Commanders' new GM may pick a quarterback in April. The club was drafted second overall after going 4-13 in 2023.
