Commanders new GM Adam Peters signs five-year deal

The Washington Commanders named Adam Peters their new general manager. 

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that Peters inked a five-year contract with the Commanders. He will immediately start recruiting a new head coach.

NFL talent evaluator Peters is well-regarded. He was a 49ers executive for seven seasons. GM John Lynch appointed him assistant GM for three seasons.

Peters was a Broncos front office employee from 2009-2016. After retiring from UCLA football, he became a scout for the Patriots.

Peters has played in Super Bowls with Patriots, Broncos, and 49ers. He may have been the most sought-after GM hire this year.

He'll immediately locate a Commanders head coach after Ron Rivera was sacked on Jan. 8.

The Commanders are one of seven teams seeking a head coach. With the No. 2 choice in April's draft and roughly $80 million in salary cap room this offseason, the Commanders' head coach opening may be the most fascinating, like its GM post. Peters' hiring boosts the Commanders' head coaching value.

Washington has begun interviewing Baltimore Ravens assistant head coach/defensive line coach Anthony Weaver and defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald for a new coach. The league allows virtual interviews until Jan. 22, when in-person interviews begin.
