Dallas Cowboys fans were sent into a frenzy after Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reported on Monday that star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb could hold out from voluntary spring workouts which begin next week.

If Lamb held out it would be another disappointing situation for the Cowboys, who didn’t do much in free agency after owner Jerry Jones claimed they were “all in” for 2024. Thus far, the organization hasn’t lived up to that moniker.

That said, Lamb isn’t worried about his future in Dallas, which should quell the fears of Cowboy fans. 

The star wide receiver was asked if he’ll be in Dallas for 2024 at a charity sports memorabilia event in Virginia over the weekend. Without hesitation, Lamb said “Yeah I’ll be in Dallas,” per TMZ Sports.

The star wideout was also asked what he’s looking forward to most next season and Lamb immediately said “Winning. I'm looking forward to winning and being out there with my guys and making another run at this thing.”

The good news for Dallas is that mandatory minicamp isn’t until June, giving them more than enough time to agree to terms on a contract extension for the 25-year-old wideout. 

Last season, Lamb cemented himself as one of the better wide receivers in the league with 135 receptions (181 targets) for 1,749 yards and 12 touchdowns. It was the third consecutive year that Lamb had 1,000-plus yards and the first time in his career he scored 10-plus touchdowns.

The Cowboys cannot afford to have these holdout rumors linger over their head as a couple of other wide receivers are waiting to get paid such as Ja’Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson, and Tee Higgins. If you are Jerry Jones, you would like to set the market at receiver before having Chase or Jefferson do it for you.
