The San Francisco 49ers completed seven days of their training camp schedule before having Wednesday off, and with star receiver Deebo Samuel returning to practice Monday after signing an extension, let’s take a look to the early connection between him and second-year quarterback Trey Lance.

Samuel, who signed a three-year extension worth up to $73.5 million on Sunday, was seen in uniform for the first time on Monday, although he was conditioned on the sidelines in the days leading up to the announcement of the agreement.

Samuel worked on offense on his return, spending the majority of his early snaps with the second-team offense with quarterback Nate Sudfeld.

However, on Monday, Samuel was seen working with Trey Lance and the quarterbacks during warm-ups on deep passes.

On Tuesday, after having zero connections on Monday, the duo finally connected, with Lance finding Samuel on a screen pass that went 15 yards, as well as a 20-yard play that required an impressive throw into a narrow window between.

However, on Wednesday, the two didn’t seem on the same page as Samuel dropped a touchdown pass on a nice deep fade throw with Emmanuel Moseley on cover. Next, Samuel ran a 20-yard exit route, while Lance ran a 40-yard out route, launching another incompletion.

Is there a reason to worry?

Of course not.

Remember, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk initially struggled to win against top cornerbacks Charvarius Ward and Emmanuel Moseley in the first two days of practice, before dominating the final days.

Also, Samuel’s explosiveness still seems to be there, as he exploded on screen play, getting 15 yards on the pass.

With the two having four days of camp to continue working on their connection, as well as the entire month leading up to the regular season, it will be interesting to watch Lance’s favorite targets.
