Lance trains with Mahomes, shows improved mechanics originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
The 49ers fan base was shaken to the core by what happened Thursday.
No, it wasn’t a seismic trade or a free agent signing, but rather a professionally edited slow-motion clip of a single pass from 49ers third year quarterback trey lance. Amazing.
Jokes aside, the Lance clip, posted by prestonsmithphotography on Instagramit actually had a couple of interesting nuggets included.
First of all, Lance was sharing the practice field with Kansas City Chiefs attack player patrick mahomes and can be seen in the background of the two-time NFL MVP’s pass at the 0:19 mark.
In addition to training with elite company, Lance also showcased his improved pitching mechanics, as The Athletic’s David Lombardi noted on Twitter.
Lance’s arm slot is noticeably higher and his throw appears to be faster, which is a good sign that the 22-year-old has been working on his mechanics as he recovers from the ankle injury that ended with the season and suffered in Week 2 of last season.

While brock purdy recovers from surgery to repair a torn UCLspear and newly signed quarterback sam darnold will take the repetitions of the first team to San Francisco during OTAs at the end of May and throughout the summer.
If Lance can return to the field healthy and show signs of progress, he should have an excellent opportunity. to retain initial work.
