San Francisco Chronicle sportswriter Eric Branch joins podcast host Mike McFeely to talk about former North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance, who has work to do if he wants to be the San Francisco 49ers long-term starter.
Lance was taken with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, was given the starting job to start 2022, but suffered a broken leg early in the season. He was replaced first by Jimmy Garoppolo and then Brock Purdy. It's like Purdy would've remained the team's starting QB if not for an injury he sustained.
Branch lays out the scenario for Lance's short-term and perhaps long-term prospects with the Niners.
