There has been a lot of talk about Trey Lance's relationship with Jimmy Garoppolo.

Lance was drafted third overall in 2021 as the 49ers' next franchise quarterback. 

Lance taking Garoppolo's job could've upset him, but instead he's been very classy. 

On Thursday afternoon, he told the media he has a great relationship with Lance.

"Trey and I have a strong relationship, despite what the media says," Garoppolo said. 

This season, Garoppolo will be Lance's backup after the 49ers gave Lance the keys.

In response, Garoppolo signed a one-year contract to remain with the 49ers this season.

Until he becomes a free agent next year, he'll receive a guaranteed $6.5 million. 

Lance will learn a lot from Garoppolo this season since he has only appeared in six games.
