New Washington Commanders general manager Adam Peters arrived in town on Monday evening — the day the team confirmed his hiring.
Peters, 44, will be introduced to the local media on Tuesday during a 2:00 p.m. ET press conference in Ashburn.
Peters arrived Monday with his wife and children as the snow was falling in Northern Virginia.

Peters was all smiles.
Washington hired Peters over four other candidates, with Bears assistant GM Ian Cunningham the other finalist. However, it was clear from the beginning that Peters was the Commanders’ top target.
Washington fans have been buzzing since Friday when it was revealed Peters was the hire. While others have held the GM title over the years, the franchise hasn’t had an actual general manager with the final say over the roster since Charley Casserly in 1999.
In more good news, Jeremy Fowler reported on Monday that Peters had received a five-year contract from the Commanders.
New #Commanders general manager Adam Peters is signing a five-year deal with the franchise, likely early this week, per sources. Peters will be official and expected to jump right into the coaching search.
