Nick Bosa hopes to see 49ers fans return to Levi’s Stadium, has advice for Trey Lance

Apr 30, 2021 at 9:57 AM--


NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes to see stadiums across the league filled with fans once again. Last season, there were no or limited fans in venues due to the pandemic. For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past.

Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021.

"It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV copies of our playoff run (from the 2019 season) and just seeing how involved the fanbase was. It really brings, I think, almost more than any other sport, it brings so much energy to the players.

"Yeah, I'm really, really hoping that we can get these vaccines going, and people feel comfortable to be back out there."

Bosa received a new teammate on Thursday night. The 49ers drafted quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. It wasn't that long ago that Bosa was a rookie. While he didn't know the selection at the time, the defender had some advice for the incoming rookie.

"Just get ready for a hectic year because the rookie year is probably the most hectic," Bosa said. "I think any player would tell you that. And it's going to be a quick turnaround. You're going to be in the city the day after, so just be ready for a quick turnaround.

"You're going to be at the facility working out with your class, so just be ready to go and just get focused now. But definitely enjoy it because it is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. You've got to enjoy it, for sure."

Oh, and don't worry, Trey. Bosa isn't allowed to hit you during practices.

Mike McDaniel explains how Trey Lance has impressed the 49ers

Rookie Trey Lance has been getting practice reps since May 14, when the San Francisco 49ers kicked off their rookie minicamp. Organized team activities (OTAs), which included seven more practices, followed. Those were cut short following a couple of serious injuries to two potential key backups this week in Justin Skule and Tarvarius Moore. Now, Lance will have until July 27 to study what he has learned and prepare for training camp. The 49ers surrendered significant draft capital to trade up to select Lance at No. 3 overall. While viewed as raw, having only 17 games on his collegiate resume, his talent is undeniable. Kyle Shanahan fell in love with Lance's



49ers' George Kittle says Jimmy Garoppolo 'has a fire lit under him,' good dynamic with Trey Lance

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was a guest today on Good Morning Football and discussed several topics of interest. Among those topics was the dynamic between the team's starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, and the rookie drafted at No. 3 overall to eventually succeed him, Trey Lance. One would think that could create an awkward situation in the quarterback room and possibly the locker room. That hasn't been the case for the 49ers, though. Garoppolo has been welcoming to the young quarterback and willing to serve as his mentor while preparing for the 2021 season. "I know there was a story that came out that Jimmy Garoppolo was one of the first guys to text Trey Lance," Kittle said. "That's just the type of guy that Jimmy is. He's not going



Mohamed Sanu has some laughs at 49ers rookie Trey Lance's expense

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance is spending the next month preparing for training camp. He threw some passes to teammate Mohamed Sanu this week, and the veteran wideout had a little fun at the rookie's expense. Many NFL players use the cars they drive to make a statement. The bigger the contract, the flashier the car might be. Lance's statement appears to be, "Cut me some slack. I haven't even signed my rookie deal yet." Sanu jokingly poked fun of Lance's ride this week — a Chevrolet Malibu. It's probably not the statement vehicle you would expect of a young up-and-coming star. "All that money, he pull up in a Malibu," Sanu can
