49ers promoted Adam Peters to assistant general manager.
Peters, who was hired by the 49ers in 2017 as vice president of player personnel, is widely considered to be an up-and-coming general manager candidate. He'll serve as the team's assistant GM in 2021 alongside general manager John Lynch, who in a Friday statement called Peters a "tremendous asset" to the 49ers. Peters got his start as a scouting assistant for the Patriots in the early-2000s.
