Michael Sam COMPLETELY SURPRISED By Cowboys Offer

Exclusive Details
0902_michael_sam_cowboys_getty
The "Michael Sam to Dallas" move was a bang-bang play -- with the whole deal unfolding in just a couple of hours ... starting with a phone call from Dallas to Sam's camp around 11AM Tuesday. 

Our NFL sources tell TMZ Sports ... the whole thing was like a whirlwind -- and Sam had no idea he was in the cards for Dallas until the phone rang. 

After that, Sam hopped on the first plane to Texas -- where he'll join the practice squad ... pending a physical.

Our sources tell us ... Sam is fired up about the opportunity and can't wait to get on the field. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
