Golden Nuggets: Adam Peters, Bay Area legend

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Saturday, January 13th, 2024

49ers assistant GM Adam Peters hired as Commanders GM

“This is the second time the Commanders have tapped the 49ers’ front office for a new GM. They also hired Martin Mayhew away from San Francisco to be their GM ahead of the 2021 season. Mayhew’s status with Washington remains unclear, but he could return to the 49ers to replace Peters, who was promoted to assistant GM in 2021.”

“The man with the power to prevent all that grew up in Novato, wears a Honolulu Blue jersey and will have 65,000 raucous Motowners cheering their hearts out for him Sunday night, displaying how much they want and appreciate him.

If you want the Niners to have an easier divisional-round path, you might want to join in.”

Deebo Samuel recalls moment Trent Williams’ greatness stood out, talks 49ers’ mentality

“Me and Trent had an Airbnb down there at the time,” Samuel continued. “And I would just be chilling, walking around the house, playing the game or whatever, and I see Trent in there watching film 24/7. So I came in there one day, and I’m just like, ‘Bro, let me just see what you’re watching.’”

Samuel witnessed a dedicated Williams studying his own performances, analyzing every move, and anticipating opponents’ actions.

“He’s literally watching himself and the things that he do and how he attacks people and know literally every move that a person is going to do is just crazy to me,” Samuel shared. “And it just transferred over to the field. You can see the way he practiced on Thursdays, and it just carried over to the game on Sunday.”
