Trey Lance sheds light on ecstatic reaction over Cowboys trade amid Dak Prescott’s warm welcome

Trey Lance was unexpectedly traded to the Cowboys after spending two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. Lance played in the preseason games with the 49ers and was expecting that he might get the backup quarterback position. However, the team gave him a clear answer and traded him to the Dallas Cowboys. 

The 23-year-old quarterback spoke to the media for the first time since his trade to the Dallas Cowboys. He displayed excitement about the move to the Lone Star State and shared about the attitude of the team’s starting quarterback towards him.

Trey Lance’s excitement radiates as he joins Cowboys

When the 49ers drafted Lance, they had a lot of expectations from him. However, the quarterback suffered an ankle injury and couldn’t play for the 2022 season. Now, he’s 100% healthy and also participated in the preseason games with the 49ers. While the quarterback was showing progress and was expecting to prove himself this season, the team had other plans for him.

Last week, it was announced that he was being traded to the Cowboys. The quarterback talked about this trade for the first time with the media and shared that he was happy to hear that he is joining the Cowboys. 

“I really tried to not expect anything one way or another, but I can say that when I heard it was the Cowboys, I had a big smile on my face,” said Lance. 

He believes that his presence on the team has a purpose and is determined to help the team in any way possible.

“I’m very excited to be here. … I believe that everything happens for a reason. I believe I’m here for a reason and, regardless of what it is, I’m here to try and find a way to help this team.” 

Although the 23-year-old was sad about not getting the position he wanted with the 49ers, he considers this trade move as an opportunity to start fresh after a challenging period with the 49ers.

Trey Lance is optimistic and determined which will help him adjust better in the team. With this positive attitude and determination, he’ll soon become a valuable asset for the Cowboys. 

Dak Prescott extends warm welcome to Trey Lance

After the Trey Lance trade news broke out, many NFL analysts questioned the team for this sudden decision stating that the Cowboys don’t trust Dak Prescott, the quarterback of the team. They believed that the team didn’t need a new quarterback when they had Prescott. 

However, Prescott didn’t take this thing negatively and rather extended a warm welcome to Trey Lance. 

“He welcomed me with open arms. It meant a lot to me. This business is crazy but, for me, I’m not looking forward — at all. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time,” Lance said about Prescott.

He values the respect Prescott commands across the league due to his high-level performance. 

“This guy has played at a very high level for a long time so, obviously, just tons of respect for him, as I think he deserves and gets from across the league.”

The quarterback is eager to learn from Prescott and improve his skills.

“First and foremost, I’ve gotta learn to have an opportunity to help anyone in the [QB] room and anyone on the offense. That’s really what I’m focused on: learning enough to be able to contribute.”

Trey Lance is joining the Cowboys with a very positive mindset and a willingness to learn, the two qualities that can help players learn and grow to become the best of themselves. We hope Trey Lance will get better opportunities with the Cowboys to prove himself and show the world that he can become one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
