Surprise AFC Team Acquires 49ers QB Trey Lance in Blockbuster Trade, Putting Pressure on Their QB1

Former Denver Broncos fan favorite and wide receiver suggests his team should trade for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance.

In a surprising turn of events, former Denver Broncos' fan favorite and wide receiver, Brandon Stokley, has expressed his desire for his former team to trade for San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Trey Lance. Lance, who was drafted with the No. 3 selection in 2021, had a promising start to his career as the backup to Jimmy Garoppolo. However, his season was cut short due to a devastating ankle injury in Week 2 of the 2022 season.

During Lance's absence, rookie Brock Purdy stepped up as the 49ers' starting quarterback and delivered impressive results, going 5-0 in the regular season and leading the team to an NFC Championship Game appearance. If Purdy continues to excel in the starting role, the 49ers may consider trading Lance, potentially involving the No. 3 pick from the 2021 Draft.

Stokley, in a recent episode of "Stokley and Zach," proposed the idea of the Broncos trading for Lance, suggesting that the 49ers may not have full confidence in him. Stokley pointed to the fact that the 49ers also acquired Sam Darnold, indicating their potential willingness to move on from Lance. Stokley believes that the Broncos should take a chance on Lance as a backup option, even if their pursuit of Russell Wilson pans out.

The 49ers made a bold move by trading up to the No. 3 spot in the draft to secure Lance. However, as long as Purdy continues to perform well, the team may be content with keeping Lance on the bench. Only time will tell if the 49ers ultimately decide to trade Lance and give him a fresh start elsewhere.
