CeeDee Lamb’s Contract Extension Negotiations Loom for Dallas Cowboys

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Dallas Cowboys are no stranger to contract extension negotiations lately, as Dak Prescott, Micah Parsons, DaRon Bland, Tyler Smith and more could warrant a big deal in the near future.

One that could come before everyone is CeeDee Lamb’s contract extension.

While Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said there is “not necessarily” a specific order, the idea of ​​reaching a deal with Lamb before other star receivers like Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson get a new deal, it could be a huge benefit — as the team will need every penny to try to extend all of its young All-Pro talent.

Jones has often referred to massive extensions as being a similar amount to pay multiple players from a salary cap standpoint and that the value has to match. In Lamb’s case, finding that exact value could be difficult for both sides to reach an agreement, but Jones knows he will want to reach that value.

“He’s out there and he’s more valuable than anyone else,” Jones said Tuesday. “But so valuable, having to give up four or five players to have it, you have to reconcile it. That’s what I’m trying to say. It’s a lot quicker and easier said than done.”

Once the deal is closed, usage comes into play to get the value of the deal. After a season in which Lamb set franchise records for receptions (135) and receiving yards (1,749), that usage is undeniable at the negotiating table.

“Whoever has CeeDee, and I hope it’s us, will use him,” Jones said. “You have to. You just have to get that kind of mileage out of her. What has she shown us? That she is capable of carrying that load. We have to focus.”
