Trey Lance’s tenure with the San Francisco 49ers came to an end on Friday when he was dealt to the Dallas Cowboys for a fourth round pick. In the end, it was the best offer that the Niners received for their former third-overall pick but it wasn’t the only one.
Based on recent reports, at least three other teams inquired about a trade for Lance, including two AFC powerhouses.
As Dianna Russini reported earlier this morning, both the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens had discussions with the 49ers about a Lance trade. She also notes that the Lions were also in the mix.
However, the offers from these teams only ranged in the 5th to 6th round range.
Most of the interested parties in Lance appeared to be teams who already have mobile starting quarterbacks — making the 23-year-old out of North Dakota State an ideal backup.
The Cowboys will now look to resurrect Lance’s career after he failed to deliver during his two years in the Bay Area.
It was a bitter turn of events for the Niners, who traded away three first-rounders and a third-rounder for quarterback ahead of the 2021 NFL draft. In two seasons, he started just four games, going 2-2 with 797 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. He also had 235 rushing yards and a touchdown.
