More San Francisco 49ers news
Fred Warner from Team 49: Training against Tre Lance made me a better player
The San Francisco 49ers are high in potential quarterback tree lances. Colleagues and coaches praise last year’s Public Choice No. 3 when asked about it. The 49ers are hoping to spend the season essentially on the sidelines, learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo, and have prepared Lance to take charge in 2022. San Francisco are likely to trade Garoppolo this season, possibly in the next two weeks. That would leave Lance as the top quarterback on the depth chart. The 49ers took Patrick Mahomes’ approach to Lance’s development, sitting him through his rookie campaign and giving him time to learn coach Kyle Shanahan’s complex offensive. Lance started two games, only because injuries kept Garoppolo away. In total, the young midfielder played only 178 shots during his playing time
Arden Key would like to return to the 49ers’ if the money is right, praises Trey Lance
Defensive end Arden Key is among several San Francisco 49ers players set to arrive at free agency next week. Finally managing to escape what he felt was a bad situation with the Las Vegas Raiders, Key carried 6.5 sacks, 22 tackles, five tackles for a loss and 17 quarterbacks in 17 games last season. All of them were at the highest functional levels. Maybe the 49ers would like a return key. The feeling is mutual. However, Key has positioned himself well and is poised to earn a good payday. “I want to come back,” Key told fans during an Instagram Q&A (h/t TheSFNiners). “No, they have to want me back. Well, they want me back. We have to see if the money is right.” The Raiders made Key a draft of LSU’s third round in 2018. He
Eric Armstead: Jimmy Garoppolo “rescued” 49 players, excited for Tre Lance
Defending player Eric Armstead recalls what life was like with the San Francisco 49ers before the arrival of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Armstead, who was drafted to the team in 2015, spent two and a half seasons at Santa Clara before the mid-season trade sent Garoppolo of the New England Patriots to the Bay Area team. Armstead saw his 49ers go 8-35 between their 17th overall draft position in 2015 with Garoppolo’s first start with the team in 2017. The quarterback is 31-14 as a start ever since, and he’s helped the 49ers reach To two NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl in the past three seasons. Armstead wanted to remind Garoppolo’s critics how far the 49ers had come thanks to the quarterback. “Man, I think people have short-term memory loss or something.
John Lynch details how Trey Lance’s rookie deal opens things up to the 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers would save a lot of money by trading their starting quarterback for the past four and a half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo. That would put the offense in the hands of last year’s second and third quarterback, Trey Lance. Garoppolo is set to calculate $26.95 million against the salary cap. However, Lance’s cap was only $7.75 million. The move from Garoppolo to Lance allows the 49ers to retain talent and improve the roster. “There’s always an edge,” John Lynch told Kianna Martin of 49ers.com.
