Watch: 49ers’ Trey Lance and Mohamed Sanu working out together

Jun 15, 2021 at 10:54 AM--


NFL players are off until training camp begins at the end of July. However, that doesn't mean it's time for players to rest. They need to stay in shape and be ready to compete once they hit the field again.

Two San Francisco 49ers players are hard at work. One is rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who is taking what he learned from the team's offseason program and honing his skills. He is working with a seasoned veteran, too.

The following Instagram videos popped up of Lance tossing footballs to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the find).


Last week, offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel shared that the team was coaching Lance on the fundamentals during their time together, making sure the rookie knew what to work on during the time off.

"Really preparing him for his 40 days off where he can work on his own and preparing him to compete in training camp," McDaniel said.

This is Sanu's second stint with the 49ers. He was briefly with the team last season and caught just one pass. The veteran receiver is fighting for a roster spot this offseason. Sanu impressed his coaches during the offseason program, and McDaniel believes that Sanu will have no problem earning a role with San Francisco if that carries over into training camp.

"You can tell that he doesn't expect anything to be given to him, and he's trying to earn his spot on this team," McDaniel said. "So it was very exciting to see him perform. He was doing very well. And, if he comes back to training camp in that same shape, he's going to be a guy that is going to be tough to beat out for that final 53 (man) roster."

49ers' Trey Lance discusses improvement since last week, preparations for possible start against Rams

If Trey Lance has to start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers this week in their pressure-packed showdown against the Los Angeles Rams, he'll at least have a good idea what he's getting into, along with a little more improvement under his belt since his previous start. Lance's status for Sunday's game in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX) remains up in the air due to the lingering uncertainty surrounding Jimmy Garoppolo, who was sidelined in favor of Lance against the Houston Texans last week due to a thumb injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has yet to announce who will start the game at quarterback, but Lance has been staying ready this week, in part, by splitting reps with Garoppolo after getting all of the first-team reps last week. "Obviously



49ers more excited about Trey Lance now than when they drafted him, says John Lynch

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing
