The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly receiving calls from other teams offering to trade for quarterback Trey Lance.
There is no indication that the 49ers are really interested or open to dealing him, especially since he is currently their starter while Brock Purdy recovers from surgery on a torn UCL in his throwing elbow .
But those calls have left NFL fans speculating that Lance could be gone if either of those trade offers ever sees the light of day, and the team with the highest odds of landing him is the Tennessee Titans.

Going into last season, some thought the Titans were the best team in the AFC South.
After all, they boast Derrick Henry, who posted 1,538 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns in 2022 and is one of the best in the league at his position.
But the quarterback position is a problem for them, as Ryan Tannehill had a bad season and missed five games with an ankle injury, and as a result, they won just seven games.
Lance has played in only eight games and only four starts in two pro seasons so far, as an ankle injury in Week 2 prematurely ended his 2022 campaign.
He is believed to have tremendous power, as he can move chains with his feet and has the ability to connect accurately on the long ball.
His development as a medium-range passer, especially in the pocket, could indicate how good he eventually will be as an NFL signal-caller, whether he ends up with the 49ers or another team.
