REPORT: 49ers Are Taking Trade Calls On QB Trey Lance

With the emergence of Brock Purdy last season, the 49ers seem willing to move Trey Lance, who the 49ers traded up for to select in the 2021 NFL Draft.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, ‘several teams’ have been calling the 49ers about the 22-year-old quarterback. Rapoport mentions that the 49ers aren’t making calls to shop Lance, but they are listening to clubs who have contacted them.

The 49ers are in a strange spot with their quarterbacks right now. Purdy exceeded all expectations after taking over as the starter when Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a broken foot in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

San Francisco went 5-0 and averaged 33.6 points per game in Purdy’s five regular-season starts. He threw for 1,098 yards, 11 touchdowns and completed 68.6 percent of his attempts during that stretch.


Purdy underwent surgery March 10 to repair a torn UCL in his elbow suffered during the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He is expected to start a throwing program within three months post-surgery and could be playing in games within six months.

Lance has barely seen the field since being drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in 2021. The North Dakota State alum made two starts as a rookie when Garoppolo was out because of injuries.
