Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Sunday, July 3rd, 2022

Jerry Rice on why 49ers QB Trey Lance is ‘ready to go’

“Trey Lance, I think he’s ready to go,” Rice said. “And I think he’s incredible because he has that one aspect that Jimmy doesn’t have, and that’s the threat of running with the ball and stuff like that. So his mobility, his strong arm, and this guy, he’s before his time.”

Wishing everybody a happy and healthy 4th of July Weekend!”
