Trey Lance's Revelation: Why the Cowboys QB is at His Prime

There's going to be a battle for the QB2 spot for the Dallas Cowboys!

The Dallas Cowboys are set at the QB1 position, as franchise quarterback Dak Prescott remains the face of the franchise as he enters the final current season of his contract.

But there will be plenty of competition behind him for the backup role between Trey Lance and Cooper Rush, something that Lance is looking forward to after having spent last season as the 3rd stringer. 

"My mindset hasn't changed," Lance said. "I haven't attacked this offseason any differently. Controlling what I can control, continuing to learn the offense and building trust with these guys and the coaching staff as well."

"I'm excited. I haven't played a snap, obviously, since last preseason. I'm just excited and looking forward to it and making sure I'm ready when that time does come."

"[My confidence] is much higher than it was when I got into the NFL, for sure," he said. "I kind of didn't know what to expect. I think that's probably most rookies, if not all of them at one point or another throughout that first year. I feel great about where I'm at. Continuing to get better, continuing to learn and continuing to be a better quarterback."

Lance, who was acquired from the rival San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a mid-round draft pick, admitted that the offense in Dallas is different than what he had previously experienced, but that he's embracing the challenge. Now that he's gotten closer to his teammates, he's looking forward to coming into Training Camp with a mindset focused on being the best he can be. 

The Cowboys will gather for Training Camp in late July.
