Jerry Rice on why 49ers QB Trey Lance is ‘ready to go’

Jul 2, 2022 at 11:42 AM--


Jerry Rice seems to be all aboard the Trey Lance train as the 2022 San Francisco 49ers season approaches.

The legendary former 49ers receiver spoke briefly about Lance with KSBW-TV in Monterey this week while he was in the area promoting his energy drink, G.O.A.T. Fuel. Rice was asked about Lance during his appearance and said he likes his dual threat potential over what Jimmy Garoppolo brings to the table and that he thinks Lance is ready to take over the team's starting quarterback spot this season.

"Trey Lance, I think he's ready to go," Rice said. "And I think he's incredible because he has that one aspect that Jimmy doesn't have, and that's the threat of running with the ball and stuff like that. So his mobility, his strong arm, and this guy, he's before his time."

It's still hard to say exactly what the 49ers will get from Lance this season, but Rice seems to think the 2021 first-round pick has what he needs to be a success.

"He's a young kid, but he's very experienced and I think he's ready to go," Rice said.

Lance and the 49ers have less than four weeks remaining before they begin training camp in Santa Clara, with rookies and veterans set to report on July 26. All eyes will be on Lance to see if he's indeed ready to take permanent ownership of the starting role after waiting his turn behind Garoppolo last season.

NFL executive reveals what he'd hypothetically offer for 49ers QB Trey Lance

The surprising emergence of San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy has left many questioning the future of the team's former starter, Trey Lance. The Niners gave up a lot for the young quarterback, parting ways with multiple first-round picks as part of a package to move up in the draft to acquire Lance. While it seems unlikely that San Francisco would do anything rash, like parting ways with the former No. 3 overall pick, some in the media believe that could happen. "This Brock Purdy thing doesn't look like a fluke," NFL insider Jason La Canfora recently said on CBS Sports' The Zach Gelb Show. "They're going to want some veteran on that team, but I don't know how that all shakes out. Obviously, Trey Lance, do they trade him? Some people I've



49ers DC DeMeco Ryans on HC job: "I'm ready to go do it"

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator is in the midst of two battles: interviewing for head coaching positions, while game planning for this weekend's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Ryans, who has been in the mix for head coaching interviews for a second straight offseason, chose to remain with the 49ers in 2022, electing to bypass a second interview with the Minnesota Vikings last spring, who ended up hiring Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell. However, there's a clear difference between this cycle and the last cycle, which may ultimately decide Ryans's fate in 2023: his desire to become a head coach. Now, that desire was certainly there in 2022, but Ryans willingly removed his name from the mix to be the Minnesota Vikings



Kyle Shanahan hopes to not lose DeMeco Ryans but knows 49ers coordinator is ready for a head coach job

The San Francisco 49ers' defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, is a hot name in head coaching searches. The assistant coach has already interviewed with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. The Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts still hope to speak with Ryans about their head coach vacancies. Right now, Ryans and the 49ers are focused on their NFC Championship Game opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. Players know their time with the defensive coordinator is running out, though. In their minds, there is no doubt that Ryans will thrive as a head coach, whether that be after this season or down the road. "He's going to be a great head coach," defensive end Nick Bosa told reporters on Wednesday. "I think he's as good as it gets when it comes to the scheme on
