Carolina Panthers Rumors: 49ers Quarterback On Team's Radar

After signing Sam Darnold, the San Francisco 49ers have a surplus of quarterbacks. As a result of this, there has been speculation over the future of Trey Lance in San Francisco. If the 49ers do elect to shop him, Darnold’s old team, the Carolina Panthers, are expected to pursue him.

The Panthers have been quite active this free agency, but it is clear that they will need to improve at the quarterback position if they want to become a legitimate playoff team in 2023. Due to this, it would make sense for them to take a chance on a young and promising QB like Lance.

With the 49ers having their new potential long-term starter in Brock Purdy, it could open the door to them moving Lance to help improve their roster elsewhere. We will now need to wait and see if the Panthers and 49ers end up striking a deal centering around Lance before the start of the regular season from here.
