Jerry Rice willing to work with 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Apr 30, 2021 at 9:26 AM--


"They have their Ferrari," said Jerry Rice this morning on 95.7 The Game.

The Hall of Fame wide receiver is referring to Trey Lance, the quarterback drafted No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. Rice is excited about the pick and could not believe his ears when it was announced.

And, Trey, if you need anything, just give Jerry a call.

Rice said that he's already spoken with Lance and is willing to continue working with the young quarterback as he embarks on his NFL journey. Maybe that means hauling in some passes from the newest Niner during pre-game warmups or even on their own.

Before the pandemic, Rice would often be in attendance at 49ers home games.

"We have a line of communication so he can reach out to me for anything," Rice said. "Also, I told him that if he needed me to run some routes for him and do those things, I'm still capable of doing that. He's got that rocket arm and all that.

"But (I'll) just be there for him and pass that knowledge on. I think that's the most important thing. And let him know that he's going to have highs; he's going to have lows. It's just how he can deal with those situations and just make his teammates better around him."

Rice feels the future is bright for his former team, and he can't wait to see what Lance does with his opportunity.

You can listen to the entire conversation with Rice below.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined Michael Silver and his daughter, Natalie, on the latest Pass It Down podcast. Of course, the topic of quarterbacks came up. The Niners have Jimmy Garoppolo, who helped guide the team to a Super Bowl just over 16 months ago. But the team also planned for the future, trading up to select Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. While Kittle remains loyal to his starting quarterback of the past three and a half seasons, the All-Pro tight end is impressed with his new rookie quarterback. "He's a freak athlete. It's kind of fun to watch that. It is," Kittle told the Silvers. "He's got a cannon for an arm too. That's fun to watch too. It's a different style of quarterback play, for



Kyle Shanahan discusses having a dual-threat quarterback in 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to lead the San Francisco 49ers offense. That confidence may waver when it comes to depending on his veteran passer to be available for the majority of the season. That, not his skill set, led Shanahan and the 49ers to seek another quarterback in the draft. In January, Shanahan fell in love with the idea of acquiring Trey Lance. He liked several of this year's rookie quarterbacks, but it was the North Dakota State product who pushed him to want to trade up from No. 12 overall. So San Francisco did exactly that, moving up to No. 3 to select Lance, a prospect with little experience but huge upside. Most assume that it is Lance's athletic ability that drew Shanahan to the
