Michael Sam

COMPLETELY SURPRISED

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.

The Cowboys defense is bad, so if he works hard he will probably make the full roster eventually. He has some talent, but just needs to learn things at the NFL level. He should also learn to play special teams, so he can add value as a player.

Hallelujah! Thank you Dallas for giving Michael Sam the chance to prove himself. Remember...when one door closes, there are always other opportunities out there. Keep believing!
