Watch: Trey Lance wows fans with deep TD pass to Danny Gray in 49ers-Vikings joint practice

Aug 17, 2022 at 9:18 AM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance connected on a deep 76-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Danny Gray during last week's preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. It appears the connection was not an anomaly, as Lance and Gray connected again during Wednesday morning's joint practice with the Minnesota Vikings at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan, Minnesota. The rookie wideout was going against Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson.

Here are three perspectives on the deep touchdown pass from practice. The first shows the throw and catch on the field in the distance at the end of the video.


The second is a better look from Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.


Here is another angle from Matt Barrows of The Athletic.


After the preseason game against the Packers, Lance shared what he was thinking on the touchdown pass to Gray.

"Throw it to the fast guy," Lance said. "Danny did a great job. He's done a great job all camp. Just him being healthy, obviously, he's a difference maker for us on offense. His speed is something I've had maybe one other time in my life (Christian Watson at NDSU). So for me, it's a fun guy to have -- a fun guy for the receiver room to have also. Just help the route tree out and make defenses defend the whole field."

The 49ers and Vikings will hold a second joint practice on Thursday. Their preseason matchup is scheduled for Saturday evening at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Montana, Young weigh in on Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo's return to 49ers

Is a San Francisco 49ers quarterback controversy brewing? That depends on who you ask. Many have discussed the possibility this week because it's a hot topic considering the Chicago Bears' upset win over the Niners in Week 1. The far-more-talented 49ers should be 1-0 right now, but they aren't. Trey Lance, being the starting quarterback now, will have to shoulder much of the blame whether that is fair or not (it's not, by the way). Meanwhile, Jimmy Garoppolo, who most expected to be traded or released this offseason, remains on the roster. He watched from the sidelines as his one-time protégé dealt with the rainy elements in his third career NFL start. Lance struggled. That much cannot be denied. His inexperience showed. Suppose things don't get

How 49ers GM John Lynch responded to criticisms of Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch is a Hall of Fame safety who spent his playing days knocking out those who challenged him, so he's not necessarily someone you would want to cross. Yet, some high-profile individuals have come out and criticized the team's choice of quarterback—Trey Lance. The most vocal criticisms this week came from former NFL coach Mike Martz. "I've never seen anything about this kid that was encouraging at all," Martz said during a podcast appearance. "He really has to plant himself to make a good throw. He's not a quick decision guy. Everybody's shot in the rear about him for being a mobile guy making plays with his feet – he



49ers' Kyle Shanahan hopes Trey Lance's versatility becomes a significant advantage

By David Bonilla

Trey Lance ran the football 13 times for 54 yards in the San Francisco 49ers' regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears. A handful of those runs were by design. Unfortunately, they weren't enough to pull out a win, with the 49ers losing 19-10. Shanahan hopes Lance's versatility becomes a significant advantage moving forward, though. He wants to keep defenses on their toes and guessing what the 49ers offense might do on any given play. Even when it seems like Lance might pass, his threat of taking off with the football can change how a defense reacts. "That's his advantage, and that's what he's got to keep," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "I mean, that's what gives him an advantage in this league, when you are a threat to run, even though you
