The Cardinals and Titans can take one name off of their General Manager wish list.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, 49ers assistant G.M. Adam Peters has declined to interview with Arizona and Tennessee. Instead, Peters will focus on continuing to help San Francisco in its postseason run.

Peters has been with the 49ers for six seasons. He’s in his second year as assistant G.M. after spending four years as the club’s vice president of player personnel.

Previously, Peters was with the Broncos from 2009-2016, advancing to director of college scouting in his last season there.

He also spent time with the Patriots’ scouting department.

Former Cardinals G.M. Steve Keim has stepped away from the franchise while former Titans G.M. Jon Robinson was fired on Dec. 6.

  1. Who in their right mind would want to work for the tightwads in AZ? TN is a tiny market where no one would care if you succeeded. Good move.

  2. AP doesn’t really want to go to a team in the NFC West. And doesn’t want to interview with Tennessee because he’s really cool with J Rob from their time in New England. He’s also from the Bay Area so he can afford to be picky and is likely in no rush to leave. Similar to how George Paton was.

  3. Peters is staying put. He’s the heir apparent to Lynch. And he grew up about 4 miles from Levi’s Stadium. Bay Area through and through

  4. Cards owner is extremely patient which you would think would be viewed as a plus but anytime somebody puts up with total ineptitude for long periods of time you’ve got to question the guy’s judgement. Like was he the source of some of those bad moves? Would he totally resist fixing longstanding problems?

  5. And we’re soooo grateful. This guy is a hot name and we’ll keep him as long as we can!
