Peters, 42, is finishing his first season as the San Francisco 49ers' assistant general manager. The 19-year NFL veteran previously spent four years as the team's vice president of player personnel.

Peters joined San Francisco after spending eight seasons (2009-16) with the Denver Broncos. In 2016, he was named the Broncos' director of college scouting after spending two seasons as the team's assistant director of college scouting. Peters was a national scout for three years (2011-13) after originally joining the Broncos as a regional scout in 2009. As a member of Denver's personnel department, Peters helped the team acquire 27 players through the draft and college free agency who were vital members of the Super Bowl 50 championship roster.

In 2003, Peters began a six-year tenure with the New England Patriots. In his first two seasons with the Patriots as a scouting assistant, he was a part of two Super Bowl championship teams (XXXVIII in 2003 and XXXIX in 2004). In 2005, Peters handled pro scouting duties for the team before serving as an area scout in his final three seasons (2006-08).

Prior to the NFL, Peters spent one season (2002) as a football operations graduate assistant at UCLA, where he played defensive end from 1999-2001. He transferred to UCLA from West Valley Junior College in Saratoga, Calif., where he played tight end for two seasons (1997-98) and earned all-conference honors.

A native of Cupertino, Calif., Peters attended Monta Vista High School, where he was a football and baseball standout.

Peters and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters, Alexandra and Emilia.
