Is there some controversy brewing in San Francisco with the 49ers?
A week before the 2023 NFL Draft, rumors started that the 49ers were fielding calls about trades for QB Trey Lance because Brock Purdy was going to be the starting QB. Nothing real concrete, but where there’s smoke, there’s fire most of the time.
Lance won the starting job before last season started and did a good job leading them until he got hurt. Purdy also did an excellent job in his stint as QB leading the team through the playoffs before he got hurt.
How does Lance feel about being in trade rumors, though?
Like most players, he isn’t happy, reportedly. According to Pro Football Talk, he has no information or comments on the trade speculation.
It’s fair for him to be upset, considering he did win the starting job last season, but only time will tell if he’ll be traded.
