It sounds like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is getting closer to being ready to take over the team.
The 49ers drafted Lance third overall in the 2021 NFL draft, but he played very sparingly last season as Jimmy Garoppolo was QB1 under center. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
The belief is the 49ers will dump Jimmy G once Lance is ready to take over, and the young passer appears to have made some serious progress towards becoming QB1 for the 49ers.

The dual-threat passer has grown “leaps and bounds the past few months as far as playbook and voice in the locker room,” according to Peter Schrager during an interview with Pat McAfee.

We all know the 49ers didn’t draft Lance to sit on the bench. The 49ers drafted the talented young man to take over the franchise. They want him starting as soon as he’s ready.
Last season, Jimmy G was the better option and Trey Lance was relegated to a very minor role.

Now, it sounds like Lance is getting close to being the guy from a leadership and playing perspective. If you’re a fan of the 49ers, that has to excite you.
No disrespect to Jimmy G, but the ceiling with Lance is just way higher. He is an outstanding athlete, has a great arm and opens up the playbook.
