The 49ers don’t have any quarterbacks on their roster who distantly take after Trey Lance’s range of abilities. There’s a free specialist quarterback who has a comparable range of abilities, yet in addition has knowledge of Kyle Shanahan, and needs to sign with the 49ers.
Previous No. 2 in general pick Robert Griffin III is prepared to hop into a mentorship job for Lance following a couple of years as an apprentice bobbing from Washington, to Cleveland, to Baltimore. He joined Bleacher Report’s inclusion during the draft and said he’s available to a get-together with Shanahan.
“I’m excited for him. I think it’ll be great,” Griffin said subsequent to clarifying the afflictions of joining the Shanahan offense as a newbie. “And to be honest with you, I don’t think they have a guy on the roster that would be better situated than myself to come in and mentor the kid. So, who knows? Maybe there’s a reunion in store with the Shanahans.”
Griffin burst on the scene in 2012 when he was a Pro Bowler and Offensive Rookie of the Year with Mike Shanahan as Washington’s lead trainer and Kyle Shanahan running the offense. He passed for 3,200 yards, 20 scores and only five interferences. He additionally scrambled for 815 yards and seven scores.
Different quarterbacks on the 49ers’ list are Jimmy Garoppolo, Nate Sudfeld, Josh Rosen and Josh Johnson. Johnson is a decent competitor, however he’s quite a long while more seasoned than Griffin and doesn’t have the profundity of involvement with Shanahan’s offense.
If San Francisco does decide Lance needs that type of mentor, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Shanahan bring in his former QB.
