Trey Lance: I just want an opportunity to compete
quarterback 49ers Trey Lance entered the 2022 season as the team’s starting line-up, but his run ended when he broke his ankle in the second game of the year and his future role with the team is highly questionable.
While the 49ers don’t plan to bring Jimmy Garoppolo back, seventh round pick Brock Purdy will return in 2023, and there are many people who believe he is a better option for managing offense than the third overall pick in the 2021 draft. However, Purdy is set to miss the offseason with elbow surgery, and that will give Lance more time to show the team that he can be the quarterback they thought he was coming out of college.
During appearance On The Rich Eisen Show, Lance said that “Brock played really well” when asked if the 49ers ever told him that he remained their choice as a quarterback and that all he was looking for was a chance to prove himself. can get the job done.
“Everyone saw what Brock did,” Lance said via 49ersWebzone.com. “Brock doesn’t just come in and play so well, but I get something unexpected. And I don’t expect it and I don’t want it, but I sincerely believe, yes, I just want to opportunity to compete. That’s all I wanted this offseason.”
Lance has that opportunity and will have to make the most of it to win the approval of a team that feels they are ready to fight for the Super Bowl trip that has eluded them this season.
