The San Francisco 49ers have had their fair share of star quarterbacks including the likes of Joe Montana and Steve Young. Second-year pro Trey Lance is hoping to build a legacy of his own in the Bay area and has been welcoming advice from Young himself throughout the offseason.

Lance told reporters on Tuesday that he has been in contact with Young a "decent amount" and that he is taking on any guidance he can with open arms. Of course, Young led the 49ers to three Super Bowl titles in his storied career and is perfect role model for a young player like Lance to look up to.

"I have nothing but respect for a guy like that, everything that he’s done and having been in this building and playing for this organization."

This development comes after Young praised Lance's athleticism last week and said he has "100 percent confidence" in the 22-year-old's ability. That should not be taken lightly. Young is a Hall of Famer that knows what it takes to succeed in the NFL (94-49 record, 33,124 yards, 232 touchdowns).

Lance was groomed to take over the starting role from Jimmy Garoppolo in 2022 and all signs point to that still being true heading into training camp. The former North Dakota State standout finished his rookie year with 603 passing yards, 168 rushing yards and 6 total touchdowns in 6 games played.

The 49ers currently have odds set at +190 to win the NFC West division and odds set at +1600 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
