Trey Lance has a new team after the San Francisco 49ers selected Sam Darnold over him to back up starting quarterback Brock Purdy.

The Dallas Cowboys are acquiring Lance in exchange for a fourth-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Cowboys will reportedly cover all of Lance’s $940,000 salary for this season and $5.3 million for next year, while also making the decision on his fifth-year option for 2025.
