Albert Breer ponders Tre Lance’s doubts, put Debo Samuel with 49 players

Kyle Terada – USA TODAY Sports

There have been two major stories in the San Francisco 49ers this off season. The first was a quarterback situation and a move from Jimmy Garoppolo to Tre Lance. Then it was overshadowed by Deebo Samuel’s drama that culminated in a wide receiver who asked for a deal – then was denied.On Monday, MMQB’s Albert Breer joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he heard about both facts, starting with Samuel and the 49ers’ strong desire to mend a broken relationship.

“The messages that come out of there are how bad it is [the 49ers] “They want him back and how important he is to their team,” Brier told Eisen.

Samuel was a key factor in the team’s success last season, amassing 1,770 multipurpose yards and 14 total offensive touchdowns. Then an off-season explosion at the top of the broad receiver pay market complicated matters.

However, Brier points out that the situation is not just about money. There are other factors that contribute to the emergence of disagreement between the team and the player. Obviously the money is a Worker. Brier just can’t believe it The The main element. Instead, he points to Samuel’s role in attack as a dual-threat weapon that may be a contributing factor and impact of such a role on the player’s longevity in the NFL.

“I can tell you that the Niners are working hard to get past that,” Brier continued. “They want to re-sign him, keep him there and make him part of a foul with Tre Lance as the quarterback, probably, this year.

“I think, right now, it’s an unpredictable situation because it’s one of those instances where you can’t just cash in on the problem and think it’s going to be fixed.”
As for Lance, some in the media have questioned his willingness to start. Is the quarterback really ready to rely so heavily on a quarterback for a second year? The team’s desire to trade Garoppolo indicates that they are. Of course, Garoppolo is still on the list, which likely contributed to the suspicion.Embarrassing as it may sound, Garoppolo’s survival isn’t necessarily the 49ers’ fault. General Manager John Lynch recently admitted that trade talks are progressing. Unfortunately, that was interrupted when the veteran midfielder opted to have shoulder surgery on March 8, bringing his commercial value down.

“The more I’ve smelled it over the past three or four months, I think they feel confident they can put the Tre Lance out there, and it can start,” Brier explained. “Can he manage Kyle Shanahan’s offense — the full scope of Kyle Shanahan’s offense? That is the question. And then, how much — if he can’t run it all — how much do they have to adapt?”

And remember, Kyle went through this with Robert Griffin III all those years ago in Washington when they imported the Baylor attack, and he won the Rookie of the Year award. So it’s not like Kyle can’t do that.

“So I think there’s going to be that kind of push and pull in building the attack. And that’s why I think it’s important to get clarity during this spring because you might build an attack that looks a little different to get him to work with Trey Lance so he can grow through that, and grow through the process that Every young quarterback goes through it, so in the end, he can get back to running that kind of attack.”

Brier adds that 49 players were “stunned” by Lance’s progress after last year’s break between an off-season program and training camp. This led to some thinking that perhaps there should be a quarterback competition between Lance and Garoppolo.

“Now, he has ended up settling down, and he had some problems the first time he played,” Brier said. “…Then, towards the end of the year, he started going up again. And he played relatively well when he started there at the end of the year.
“So there’s been a lot of ups and downs in the last year, and I think part of that is sort of knowing how much they’re going to have to tweak what they’re doing offensively to get him to work with Trey Lance and play in 2022. And of course, what that means for guys like Brandon Ayok , Debo Samuel, and George Keitel on the offensive.”

        San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Monday, two days after completing the 2022 NFL draft.  The Niners' latest draft class consists of nine players.  GM has shared that the team plans to hold its own mini-camp on May 12.  Update: This is Reporting Day for players only.  The actual mini-camp for beginners takes place from May 13-15.  Lynch also discussed his disgruntled wide future, sophomore quarterback, and veteran quarterback.  Here is a summary of what Lynch said on these topics.  What happens with Debo Samuel?  Lynch: “We and Deebo are trying very hard to work out any issue that might be. I've always really believed that there is a sacredness to these conversations.     

        Many eyes were on the San Francisco 49ers Thursday night, and the team didn't even have a first-round pick.  However, many felt they might end up with one, with the New York Jets reportedly very interested in trading for Deebo Samuel's wide receiver.  Reports indicate that the Jets offered the 49ers a 10th overall pick and a "swap choice" for Samuel, although details of this last component are unclear.  There were whispers that there was more to offer.  Understandably, San Francisco was unconcerned.  The 49 members of Samuel see him as too valuable, and it's possible that they weren't swayed by any of the show.  After all, the star contributed 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns last season.  That's why he stayed with the Bay Area team after that        

        Deebo Samuel is still a member of the San Francisco 49ers.  It may continue to be this way after the Niners reportedly turned down offers from other teams, including the 10th overall pick of the New York Jets, to stick with their star receiver.  Samuel wanted to be traded, and reportedly halted contract extension talks himself.  The 49ers didn't grant him his wish.  No one knows exactly what caused the rift between the two sides, but there has been a lot of speculation.  Whatever the reason, San Francisco's work will begin to mend the relationship and try to sign the "do it all" recipient on the contract extension.  One of his teammates who knows about waiting for a contract extension is linebacker Eric Armstead, who joined Good Morning Football on Friday.      

Trevor Lawrence, Zack Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. These are the former first-round quarterbacks who are set to enter the NFL’s second season. Lawrence and Jones started all 17 games in 2021. Wilson started in 13 games, and Fields started 10. Lance only had two games. However, that doesn’t mean the 22-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback isn’t set up for success. Analyst Sam Monson ranked the team’s current positions for the NFL’s best quarterback for a second year in 2022. Zach Wilson topped the list after the New York Jets’ unofficial efforts to build up their 22-year-old squad. Although, right behind him, Lance comes in second. This is logical. After all, he’s on a team that’s twice in the NFC title match twice in the past three years
