The 49ers had Hall of Fame quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young winning the Super Bowl for them. Colin Kaepernick and Jimmy Garoppolo led them to the Super Bowl.

That became Trey Lance’s charge after the 49ers traded in the 2021 draft to take him No. 3 overall and set him up to return to work in 2022.

So Lance seeks all the advice he can get, including from Young. Lance and Young have spoken several times this offseason.

“We have to talk about a decent amount,” Lance said Tuesday, via NBCSportsBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco. “Obviously a guy like that means the world every time he says anything about me. I have nothing but respect for a guy like that, everything he’s done and have been in this building and playing for this organization.

“For me, I’m going to take everything I can from a guy like that. Everything he has to say, everything he has to offer me, I welcome with open arms.

Young said last week that he had “100% confidence” in Lance’s abilities. Lance is confident in his abilities, and so are the 49ers.

The 49ers are now his team, which gives Lance a lot.
