Update: The 49ers assistant GM Adam Peters finalist for Commanders executive role

The Washington Commanders have reportedly prioritized two outside candidates for their open head of football operations position, including 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters.

Peters and Chicago Bears assistant general manager Ian Cunningham are the expected finalists for the top commander job, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported Thursday, citing sources.


Additionally, the Commanders plan to include sponsors such as Magic Johnson, David Blitzer and Mitch Rales in second-round interviews with finalists Peters and Cunningham, Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post reported Thursday, citing sources.


Peters is in his third season with San Francisco and 21st overall in the NFL. The 49ers promoted him to assistant general manager in 2021, and he has played a key role in the team’s scouting efforts.

“Adam earned this promotion as a result of his hard work and dedication to the 49er Way,” 49ers general manager John Lynch said of Peters about three years ago.

“He has been a great asset to our team and we look forward to Adam continuing to play an important role in all aspects of our football operations as we strive to compete for a championship.”

It’s likely the 49ers will choose to keep Peters, but it would be hard for the 44-year-old to turn down a higher position elsewhere.


At 4-13, Washington wants a piece of the Bay Area’s success. The Commanders’ heavy interest in Peters comes after they hired former Warriors executive Bob Myers in an advisory role on Monday.

Peters has a potential Super Bowl run in San Francisco, but with the NFL offseason already underway for teams like the Commanders, the 49ers assistant general manager will likely turn his attention elsewhere in the coming weeks.
