NFL: The San Francisco 49ers are in an extremely interesting spot when it comes to their quarterback room. Trey Lance No. 3 overall in the 2021 draft, however, Brock Purdy came in last season and showed that he can be QB1. Purdy and the 49ers won eight straight games and made a playoff appearance with the team last year. That being said, many fans think the 49ers could trade away Trey Lance for a big return.
Trey Lance Named In Massive Trade Between The San Francisco 49ers And The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL)
Evan Massey of NFL Analysis highlighted a massive trade scenario that would send Trey Lace to the East Coast:
Plenty of rumors have begun coming out that Lance could be traded before the start of the 2023 season. At the very least, he could be moved before the trade deadline.
One team that has come out frequently as a potential trade destination for Lance is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Currently, the Bucs have Kyle Trask and Baker Mayfield battling for their starting job. Adding Lance to the mix, especially long-term, could make a ton of sense.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers receive: QB Trey Lance, 2024 second-round pick, 2024 sixth-round pick
San Francisco 49ers receive: 2024 second-round pick, 2024 third-round pick
“The Bucs aren’t contenders in 2023, so their moves should be focused on saving money and acquiring draft assets. But there’s one exception to that framework: chasing quarterback upside. They might as well use the upcoming 17 games as a testing ground for a potential future QB — even if he’s a long shot. That precisely describes Lance. If there’s a 10% chance that Lance can become a long-term solution for the Bucs, that’s still a lot higher than Baker Mayfield’s chances to be that guy.”
Acquiring Lance would be a very smart gamble for the 49ers. Being able to do so by simply giving up a second-round pick swap and a third-round pick would be a no-brainer. Lance was taken with the No. 3 overall pick back in 2021 for a reason.
This Type Of Trade Would Be Huge For The Tampa Bay Buccaneers
At just 23 years of age, it is way too early to give up on Trey Lance’s talent. He deserves another chance with another team. The Buccaneers could be exactly the right team for him.
Injuries have been a major hurdle for Lance since he started his NFL career, but there’s no denying that this young man has a ton of upside. The 23-year-old has a strong arm that could fit in well with the Bucs’ vertical offense. He’s obviously no Tom Brady, but he could emerge as a QB Tampa Bay could build around in the coming years.
