Sam Darnold Potential Extension
Because the 49ers’ other two quarterbacks are coming off major injuries, it wouldn’t be inconceivable for Darnold to see significant snaps with the first-team offense over the offseason and into training camp.
If both Trey Lance and Brock Purdy are healthy after the 2023 season, it seems unlikely Darnold would get another mid-seven-figure contract, at least with the 49ers.
