The Dallas Cowboys have themselves a new quarterback behind Dak Prescott this season in Trey Lance, who was acquired from the San Francisco 49ers last weekend in exchange for a mid-round draft pick. 

And for Lance, he couldn't be happier with his new circumstances, especially with a team like the Cowboys. 

"I really tried to not expect anything one way or another, but I can say that when I heard 'Cowboys,' I had a big smile on my face," Lance said on Tuesday, via ESPN’s Todd Archer. "I was very excited to be here."

And as far as Prescott is concerned, Lance stated that their relationship is already off to a good start.

"He welcomed me with open arms," Lance said of Prescott, via the team website. "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. 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."

It's a chance for a fresh start for Lance, who was a Round 1 pick of the 49ers but never was able to put it together in the Bay Area.

"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."
