With the 49ers announcing that Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t expected to return next season, San Francisco will likely enter their 2023 campaign with Trey lance back at the starting position just as he was before his injury last year.

One negative that can be said about him is his passing accuracy is being dreadful through his first eight NFL appearances. As he continues to work himself back into 100%, Lance has taken any reworking of his throwing motion off the table.
“Asked by a reporter if he would spend the coming months improving his throwing motion, Lance said he would not, focusing on other, unnamed parts of his game. “I feel like I’m in a really good spot,” said Lance.

Six months from now is the start of August. Training camp started July 27 this past year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
