Cowboys star CeeDee Lamb warns reporters ahead of youth camp: ‘You won’t get any answers’

This week, NFL star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is focusing on the impact he’s having on local youth at his football camp, not his contract situation with the Dallas Cowboys.

So, even before arriving on the field to see how the children play, he sent a warning to the journalists.

“I’m not talking about contract negotiations, if that’s what you want to know…” Lamb posted on X. “You’re not going to get any answers. This is about the kids.”

Offseason chatter around the Cowboys has not only focused on owner Jerry Jones being conservative in free agency, but several key pieces are seeking new contracts, including Lamb.

Quarterback Dak Prescott and head coach Mike McCarthy are also in the final years of their respective contracts.


Lamb is expected to play on his fifth-year option, which was easily picked up by the Cowboys after he totaled 107 receptions and 1,359 yards with nine touchdowns in his third season in 2022.

Lamb then followed that up with 135 receptions for 1,749 yards and a league-record 12 touchdowns, once again breaking his career highs while helping Dallas return to the playoffs.

But Lamb wasn’t extended, leading to him sitting out the Cowboys’ mandatory minicamp. There’s also been talk that Lamb could be present at the start of training camp later this month.

Lamb’s importance to the Cowboys’ success since being drafted 17th overall out of Oklahoma in the 2020 NFL Draft has been abundantly clear and he, like his teammates, wants to be compensated accordingly.

According to Spotrac, Lamb is on pace to be among the highest-paid receivers in the NFL with a market value of $34 million.

Minnesota Vikings star Justin Jefferson — who was selected five times after Lamb — leads the pack financially after receiving his massive extension this offseason, which will pay him $35 million per season.

Philadelphia Eagles veteran AJ Brown also received an extension, which will pay him $32 million per season, while the Detroit Lions rewarded Amon-Ra St. Brown — a 2021 fourth-round pick — with an extension paying him $30 million per season.

The Cowboys certainly have some decisions to make when it comes to extensions, including signing star rusher Micah Parson after he totaled 40.5 sacks in his first three seasons.

Lamb knows what he wants, but he won’t talk about it at his youth camp in Arlington.
