The ex-Denver Broncos director of college scouting is highly regarded throughout the NFL. The hire of Peters quieted some of the guffaws directed at the Niners for handing their head gig to a former TV analyst.
Lynch poached Peters from the Broncos thanks to the former safety’s relationship with Denver GM John Elway jersey.
Elway told Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle in a phone interview Wednesday that he likely wouldn’t have let Peters out of his contract to go to any other team besides the 49ers.
“Probably not,” Elway said. “… He’s very good at what he does and I hate losing him. But I also know that it’s a great opportunity for him as far as the responsibilities that he was going to gain in San Francisco. But also I know that he’s going to be able to go and help John.
“If it was anyone else, I probably wouldn’t have. But I know it’s a great opportunity for Adam and he’ll be a tremendous help to John.”
The 37-year-old Peters spent the past eight seasons with the Broncos climbing the ladder from scout, to assistant director of college scouting, to head of the department. Before that, he was a scout with the New England Patriots from 2003-2008.
“That will be a huge plus for John because Adam’s been in the league for a long time and knows a lot of different things,” Elway told Branch. “How to organize personnel, whether it’s on the college side or the pro side. So to have guys that know how to organize cheap NFL jerseys, he’ll see how the process is run and after that it’s relatively easy. Just to have those people — to have good people around him who can teach him all those things.”
While former TV broadcaster-turned-GM Matt Millen downplayed the relationships built between television analysts and executives, Elway believes that experience will benefit Lynch.
Back on Jan. 22, DeMarcus Ware said on GameDay Morning: “I just think he (would) be a great fit for the Denver Broncos, but also, we already got two vested guys in Trevor Siemian jersey and Paxton Lynch. So you got to think about what type of message and authentic jerseys you want to send to the team.”

“I would like to reunite with Romo,” Ware said. “He’s one of those quarterbacks where he’s good but the thing is, I know what we have with the Denver Broncos and you gotta go with what you have. Play with what you got and just roll with it.”
Ware is currently a free agent and stated his plans to play in 2017.
“I talked to Vance and he said I’m part of the equation,” Ware told ESPN on Friday. “Hopefully I come back there, and I want to, but it’s also about the man who writes the checks and that’s [team executive John] Elway. But I’m ready, I’m passionate and I want to lead that defense.”
Given that he’s not under contract, the Broncos owe him an extra debt of gratitude for not stirring up any potential rumors that would damage the psyche of their young quarterbacks. This defense, as presently constructed, is still good enough to remain competitive in the AFC West with replacement level play under center. Bringing in someone like Romo could destroy their salary cap and prevent them from spending money to patch up any holes new coach Vance Joseph might see in their dominant front.

It’s no secret that Denver’s dominant 2015 defense lost interior stalwarts Malik Jackson jersey and Danny Trevathan to free agency. Injuries have exacerbated those defections, as run-stuffer Vance Walker went down with an ACL tear in training camp and steady inside linebacker Brandon Marshall has missed extensive action with a hamstring tear. While the pass rush and secondary remain championship-caliber, the run defense has been gutted, plummeting from 83.6 yards allowed to 135.2 — 29th in the league. Derek Wolfe is a standout defensive end, but he can’t plug the run without reinforcements along the defensive front.
After Broncos coaches and defensive stars sang Siemian’s praises to NFL Network’s James Palmer last week, the quarterback suffered through the worst outing of his young career in a blowout loss to Kansas City. As dysfunctional as Denver’s offense has been with touchdown drives of just 39 and six yards over the past three games, coach Gary Kubiak wants to take another look at first-round rookie Paxton Lynch jersey in the season finale. Is that a sign that doubts are starting to creep in after Siemian spent the majority of the season showing glimpses of the field vision, pocket movement, accuracy and streamlined delivery to suggest he can emerge as the long-term solution to the post-Super Bowl 50 quarterback conundrum?
If displaced Dallas captain Tony Romo jersey has his eyes on Denver — as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported last month — will Elway resist the temptation to pair a proven quarterback with a championship defensive nucleus? Romo comes with plenty of risk and wholesale jerseys at this stage of his career, but Elway witnessed the reward up-close via a 506-yard performance in the Broncos’ 51-48 instant classic versus the Cowboys three years ago. If Elway wants a more in-depth scouting report, he can pick the brain of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, the head coach in Dallas from 2007 to 2010.
