Trey Lance working out in SoCal with 49ers teammates Deebo Samuel, Mohamed Sanu

Jun 26, 2021 at 7:08 PM--

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance was in Fargo, North Dakota, this week for Carson Wentz's charity softball game, which benefits his AO1 Foundation. Lance did not participate in the game but did speak to reporters as part of the event.

The Niners wrapped up their offseason program a couple of weeks ago, and players are on a break until they report to training camp on July 27. Their first practice will be four days later.

Lance has been working hard during his time off, taking what he learned in the spring and preparing for the rigors of training camp. Several videos (here, here, and here) have surfaced of the rookie quarterback getting in reps during throwing sessions.

According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Lance stated that he is still working out in Southern California. He has been throwing to teammates, including wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Mohamed Sanu, during those sessions.

"It's been awesome," Lance said via Maiocco. "Those guys are a special group of guys, and I feel very fortunate to be where I am. Those are special guys, so it's hard not to (build chemistry)."

Lance hasn't had time to familiarize himself too much with the Bay Area. Most of his time there was spent at the 49ers' facility in Santa Clara.

"I love the Bay Area," Lance said. "I haven't got to explore a whole lot. As far as the organization and football goes, it's been great."

While Lance is the future, Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the 49ers' starting quarterback when the team kicks off against the Detroit Lions on September 12. So there is no rush for Lance, who has the luxury of time to sit and continue learning head coach Kyle Shanahan's complex and demanding offense.

Pelissero: 'Scales are tipping' toward Deebo Samuel playing for 49ers in 2022

In April, things got to the point where no one was certain whether or not Deebo Samuel would return to the San Francisco 49ers. The star wide receiver had requested a trade. Then, leading into the draft, there was a lot of chatter surrounding other teams being interested. And why not? In 2021, Samuel was one of the most exciting and dynamic players in the league, and he helped the 49ers reach the NFC title game for the second time in three years. The 49ers never received an offer that came close to being worth considering. It would have taken a lot for head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch to part with Samuel. He is too valuable to the team, especially considering second-year quarterback Trey Lance is expected to be the Week 1 starter in 2022. Taking away a

Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting

George Kittle wishes the 49ers didn't delay Deebo Samuel extension

Earlier this week, Bleacher Report listed what it believes is the one offseason regret for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the team not locking wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a contract extension earlier—before the receiver market exploded earlier in the offseason and Samuel requested to be traded. One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the

49ers' Deebo Samuel, George Kittle among PFF's top offensive duos

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the
