Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has developed into one of the most dynamic playmakers in the league. Lamb's play improved every year in the NFL and is now a top-notch difference-maker.

The Oklahoma product can line up all across the formation while excelling after the catch. Lamb separates from defenders with ease and adjusts to the ball when it's in the air.

The 24-year-old hopped on Micah Parsons' podcast "The Edge" and hinted at what he's looking for in his contract extension.

Lamb said,"I can’t give you no numbers right now, but I’ll tell you this, one of the top paid receivers for sure, if not the (highest-paid WR). That’s always the goal.”

You can't blame Lamb for wanting to become one of the highest-paid WRs in the game. He's compiled 1,000-plus receiving yards in three straight seasons. In 2023, Lamb was first in the league in receptions (135), second in receiving yards (1,749), and third in receiving touchdowns (12). Additionally, he was tied for second in the NFL (8) in most games with 100 or more receiving yards.

The three highest-paid WRs annually are Tyreek Hill ($30 million), Davante Adams ($28 million), and Cooper Kupp ($26.7 million). Lamb looks to join this elite company and will have a strong case to do so.

Lamb was also asked if he wants to be a Cowboy for life and he responded, "Absolutely. There’s no secret about that."

Getting a long-term deal is the first step for both sides. Whenever the deal gets done, Dallas fans should expect Lamb to become one of the highest paid at his position.
