The San Francisco 49ers launched Organized Team Activities (OTAs) this week. Monday’s session was closed to the media. However, reporters got a chance to observe Tuesday’s session and get their first off-season look at quarterback Trey Lance on the practice field.

While there are several offseason storylines tied to the 49ers, the biggest ones have been the quarterback situation and the drama surrounding wide receiver Deebo Samuel. Samuel is not present after asking to be traded, so there is nothing new to report on that front.

As for the quarterback scenario, most expect Lance to be the 49ers starter in 2022, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo, who has been on the roster much longer than expected. Of course, this is mainly due to his shoulder surgery on March 8 which caused his business value to plummet. It will start launching again at the end of next month or the beginning of July.

Meanwhile, some media have questioned the team’s confidence in Lance’s willingness to lead the offense in his second season in the NFL. A strong performance during OTAs could go a long way to answering this narrative.

Below are some of the videos from Tuesday’s practice that have surfaced from various sources. Please note that recording is not permitted once team drills have started.
