49ers QB Trey Lance should demand a trade to one of these 4 teams

If the 49ers aren't planning on Trey Lance being a key part of their future, they could do right by him and trade him away to a team of his choosing.

Trey Lance preferred trade destination No. 3: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

There are plenty of teams who'll likely be seeking quarterback upgrades very soon, and some of them have previous ties to Trey Lance already.

The Tennessee Titans have general manager Ron Carthon, who used to work for San Francisco, and Tennessee is likely looking to move beyond veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill. But, even after adding wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, the rest of the pass-catching crop is awfully bare.

The Houston Texans, meanwhile, boast the former 49ers defensive coordinator as their new head coach, DeMeco Ryans, but Ryans and the Texans now are looking at rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud to helm the franchise.

Another closed door.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' door, however, is still open. In the post-Tom Brady era, the Bucs can't be content with quarterback Kyle Trask but still have a legitimate receiving threat in Mike Evans.
