As The Star Receicer Sits …. Source: 3 Words Describe Latest On Dallas Cowboys Contract Talks with CeeDee Lamb

FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys are using three little words to help characterize both the lack of movement in their contract negotiations with CeeDee Lamb and, maybe, their confidence and commitment to getting it up …

Just not sooner rather than later.

They have their extension headache with Dak Prescott, and there is some immediacy there if the Cowboys are truly “firm” in their long-term commitment to the QB. (“Firm commitment” is the phrase used by ESPN here and we are telling you it’s the wrong phrase; if the “commitment” was “firm” the contract would be done.)

They have their extension concern with Micah Parsons, but as he is technically under contract for two more seasons, Dallas can buy time there (though given the skyrocketing cost of stars, there is little logic in waiting.)

But on Monday, when Lamb – a stated priority for the Cowboys because of both his All-Pro talent and because a new deal (maybe worth $30 million APY) would actually provide Dallas with more cap room – sat our the start of voluntary workouts here at The Star?

It triggered another round of investigation into what’s going on in talks with Lamb. And we have our answer …

“Not there yet.”

Those are the three little words that say a mouthful. They paint a picture of cordiality and even optimism … but they also hint at our belief that there really haven’t been any serious talks with CeeDee Lamb’s reps at CAA … at all.

And that’s not very cordial. And that doesn’t spawn optimism.

It can all change today, or tomorrow, or given the fact that Dallas could let Lamb play on his final-year $17.88 million in 2024 and they get tagged in 2025, it could all change in 2024 … never.

And “not there yet” are three little words that open up that can-of-worms possibility.
