NFC Notes: 49ers, Falcons, Giants


The 49ers traded QB Trey Lance to the Cowboys where he is currently the backup, yet LT Trent Williams believes that his former teammate will become a starter in the NFL once again.

I don’t have a crystal ball,” Williams told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “But I think in this league when you do the right things and you’re made of the right stuff, eventually an opportunity will find its way back to you. And I think that will happen in Trey’s case. And when it does, we’ll all see the talent everybody knows that’s inside of him.”
