49ers’ Trey Lance among QBs to join George Kittle, others at TEU in June

May 20, 2022 at 2:33 PM--


George Kittle, Greg Olsen, and Travis Kelce will once again hold Tight End University (TEU), an annual gathering of NFL tight ends who share their experiences and learn from each other. Last year's inaugural event hosted 49 tight ends. This year's gathering is expected to be even larger.

TEU will be held at Vanderbilt University from June 22-24, an upgrade from the high school facilities utilized in 2021.


"Our goal this year is about 80 [tight ends]," Kittle told Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Friday. "If we can go a little bit over that, that's awesome. If we go a little under it, that's fine."

So who is going to throw to all of these tight ends? Kittle's teammate, and the likely starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers in 2022, Trey Lance, is one.


"I've got three [quarterbacks] confirmed for you," Kittle told Florio. "I've got my guy, C.J. Beathard. I've got my guy, Nick Mullens. I've got my guy, Trey Lance. He's coming down to TEU. ... Zach Wilson is at about 99 percent. He's trying to decide if he wants to come back from Cabo or not. I was like, 'Zach, you're going to come back from Cabo.' ... And then the last one I'm working on: Josh Allen is trying to see if he can make it work."

Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your



NFL Network analysts discuss futures of 49ers QBs Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo

It won't be long until 49ers fans finally find out what will happen with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and if Trey Lance is indeed up to the task of stepping in to take over the offense. Garoppolo and Lance have been popular topics of conversation throughout the NFL this offseason, and recently a number of analysts on the NFL Network weighed in on what the future could and should hold for each of them. First, Brian Baldinger and former NFL players David Carr and Thomas Davis gave their thoughts on which team would be the best fit for Garoppolo if and when the 49ers decide to move him. Their answer -- the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, it's probably unlikely the 49ers would choose to trade Garoppolo to a division rival. But each analyst felt 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
