Trey Lance ‘had a big smile’ when he found out he was traded to Cowboys


As Lance sets up in Dallas and under the Prescott learning tree, he’s looking to help out the Cowboys in any way he can while leaving an unfortunate first two years behind him.

“It’s not how I expected it to go. It’s not how I think a lot of people expected it to go,” Lance said. “But I believe that everything happens for a reason. I think I’m here for a reason. Regardless of what it is, just want to try to find a way to help the team.”

The 49ers now infamously traded a haul of three first-round picks to move up to No. 3 overall and take Lance in the 2021 NFL Draft. It didn’t work out for the franchise or the young QB.

The latter’s hoping a do-over in Dallas could remedy his career.

“It was a little bit surreal for me hearing I was going to come here knowing everything about this historic organization,” Lance said, via ESPN. “Just compared to the 49ers, obviously you think of that as another one of the top-tier, historic organizations, but for me, just very excited to be here. Coach (Mike) McCarthy and the entire coaching staff, man, nothing but knowledge being in all these meetings. It’s been awesome for me. It’s been fun. Kind of a breath of fresh air to learn a new offense and being around the guys the last two days.”
