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

Jun 17, 2021 at 10:47 AM--


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 be heard saying while laughing at his quarterback, who is sitting in the car (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the find).

It was all in good fun, though.


Eventually, Lance will sign his four-year rookie contract, valued at $34.1 million (number from OverTheCap.com). It will include a signing bonus of $22.2 million, so, should he choose to do so, the quarterback will be able to upgrade his ride after that.

Lance is one of three 49ers draft picks who remain unsigned. The others are running back Trey Sermon and cornerback Ambry Thomas.

49ers players return to Santa Clara on July 27. Their first training camp practice is slated to begin four days later.

The 21-year-old Trey Lance continues to earn praise from his teammates. The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback is preparing to enter his first NFL training camp and hopes to show off how his hard work in the past month has led to improvement. During the players' time off, several videos surfaced of Lance taking part in throwing sessions, taking what he learned from the offseason program to sharpen his skills. One of the players Lance threw to last month is teammate Mohamed Sanu. The two also worked out together in Southern California. The wide receiver hopes to make his

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is entering his 10th NFL season and hopes to climb the San Francisco 49ers depth chart during training camp, which kicks off this week. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel figure to be the starters come Week 1. The spots behind them are up for grabs. Sanu's experience may give him an edge, though, when it comes to the No. 3 job. The veteran wideout is already familiar with the offense. He played for head coach Kyle Shanahan, then an offensive coordinator, for a season in Atlanta. That helps. Sanu was briefly with San Francisco last year, appearing in three games but hauling in only one catch for nine yards. He spent the remainder of the season with the Detroit Lions before rejoining the 49ers at the end of March. Sanu says he

There is a lot of speculation surrounding when San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance will earn his first start. Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to start Week 1. However, the veteran has made it out of September injury-free just once as a starting NFL quarterback. It may only be a matter of time before Lance gets onto the football field. Bettors are hoping to cash in on Lance's ability to do just that. More money has been placed on the 21-year-old quarterback being named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year than any other player. According to BetMGM, Lance has received 15.8 percent of the bets and 22.6 percent of



Fred Warner on 49ers rookie Trey Lance: 'I'm very excited about his growth'

The San Francisco 49ers can see the potential talent in their first-round pick, Trey Lance. It's what led the team to trade up to select the quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick. The rookie's teammates have praised the 21-year-old, who lacks a lot of collegiate experience heading into his first NFL season. Lance started 17 games for North Dakota State but faced lesser competition than some bigger programs and has played in just one game since January of 2020. Jimmy Garoppolo is the frontrunner to be the 49ers' Week 1 starter and could hold onto the job for all of 2021, assuming he can remain healthy. However, Lance is proving to be a hard worker, evident by the several workout videos posted during the team's "time off," and could prove to be a quick
