CeeDee Lamb’s contract situation with the Dallas Cowboys remains uncertain, but the All-Pro receiver expects to stay with the team this season.

“Yeah, I’ll be in Dallas,” Lamb said Monday when asked about his future, according to TMZ Sports.

Lamb is entering the last year of his rookie contract. The 2020 first-round pick is expected to become one of the NFL’s highest-paid wideouts when he signs a new deal, but it’s unclear when Dallas will reward its top weapon with a lucrative extension.


Without a new contract, Lamb is expected to skip his team’s voluntary work this offseason, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, who adds that the pass-catcher may also hold out of mandatory work.

The 25-year-old, who’s led Dallas in receiving in the last three seasons, is coming off a career year. He topped the NFL with 135 receptions in 2023 while setting career highs with 1,749 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Oklahoma product added two scores on the ground en route to earning a Pro Bowl berth for the third consecutive campaign.

“Looking forward to winning, being out there with my guys, and making another run at this thing,” Lamb said of his 2024 expectations, per TMZ.

The Cowboys have posted a 12-5 record in each of the last three seasons. Mike McCarthy’s outfit, however, is only 1-3 in the playoffs in that span. Dallas suffered a wild-card home loss to the Green Bay Packers in January.

Lamb isn’t the only star Cowboys player looking for a new deal, though. Quarterback Dak Prescott, whose contract also expires at the end of the season, reportedly hasn’t received extension offers. Star linebacker Micah Parsons is eligible to sign a new deal but said in February that extending Lamb should be Dallas’ priority.
