The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward this season with Trey Lance and Brock Purdy as their candidates for the starting quarterback spot, with Sam Darnold serving as the third-string QB.
For now, at least, Lance is the starter as Purdy is recovering from surgery to repair a torn UCL in his throwing elbow during the NFC Championship Game in January.
But on Tuesday, it was reported that other teams were calling the 49ers and making them trade offers for Lance.
This has raised the question of which team would be the best fit for him if he were to be traded.

The Vikings currently have Kirk Cousins, but although they went 13-4 last season, they lost to the New York Giants in the wild card playoff round, and at 34, Cousins is not their long-term solution.
These two fans think Lance should move to the tri-state area and play for the New York Jets.
Jet. Because Roger is living in GB.

It is believed that the Jets will eventually trade for Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, but trade discussions between the two teams are moving at a glacial pace, and there is always the possibility that the future Hall of Famer will stay or even that will be sent. to a different team.
This fan thinks the Houston Texans could be a good bet for Lance.
Howe w/ Anderson at #2 and trade #33 + late or future pick for Lance, target JSN w/ #12. demeco ready to roll

If Lance is sent to Houston, he will be reunited with former Niners defensive coordinator Demeko Ryan, who was just hired as head coach of the Texans.
