Cowboys pick up WR CeeDee Lamb's fifth-year option 

In little to no surprise, the Dallas Cowboys are picking up the fifth-year option of Pro Bowl wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night.

The team subsequently announced the move.

Lamb is the second player from the 2020 NFL Draft first-round class to have his option exercised following Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Coming off the best season of his burgeoning career, Lamb is now projected to make $17.99 million in 2024, per Over the Cap.

The 24-year-old earned his second straight Pro Bowl selection in 2022 after piling up career highs of 107 receptions, 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns.

A long-term extension is on the agenda for Lamb and the Cowboys, but for now, as expected, Dallas has locked up its No. 1 WR for the duration of his rookie deal.
