Offseason | 2024

CeeDee remains quiet; Dak says he'll 'be ready'


ROUND ROCK, Texas — CeeDee Lamb made his first public appearance of the offseason on Tuesday, as he hosted his first of three summer youth camps at the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex for 600 kids to meet the Cowboys' star receiver and compete against other campers.

Lamb's crew – led by family, friends and volunteers – set up 15 stations for the kids to go around, ending with Lamb playing a scrimmage with the kids as all-time quarterback.

Heading into his fifth season, Lamb remains in contract negotiations with the Cowboys as he awaits an extension past the final year of his rookie deal. This comes on the heels of Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson landing a four-year, $140 million deal last month which has expedited conversations between Lamb's representation and the Cowboys.

The negotiations have resulted in Lamb not reporting to offseason activities – both voluntary and mandatory – as now the attention turns to training camp when the team leaves on July 23 for Oxnard, Calif. to prepare for the season.

On Tuesday, Lamb declined an interview about any topic, including the camp itself, as he remains advised to stay out of the media amidst contract negotiations.

Earlier in the day, Dak Prescott spoke at his own youth camp and said that he and Lamb have been training away from the facility to remain in lockstep with one another ahead of a critical 2024 campaign for each of their futures.

"I can't necessarily count [how many passes], so a good amount," Prescott said on how much he's thrown with Lamb. "CeeDee is gonna be ready. A player like that, an athlete like that, he makes my job easy. As long as he's training, we'll be just fine."

Prescott will embark on his annual trip with the quarterbacks and pass-catchers this weekend where he will look to grow the on-field and off-field connection with the group before heading to training camp. When asked if Lamb will be in attendance, the answer was swift.

"That's the plan," Prescott said.
