Michael Sam -- COMPLETELY SURPRISED ... By Cowboys Offer

Exclusive Details

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. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
