CeeDee Lamb boycotting Cowboys minicamp in contract dispute, subject to $100k fine

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is officially holding out for a new contract.

Lamb, who has not participated in the voluntary offseason program, has continued his boycott with the team’s mandatory minicamp this week.

Lamb is subject to $100,000 in fines if he misses all three days of the minicamp, which began Tuesday and runs through Thursday.

Fines for skipping the offseason program can be waived.

That is not the case if Lamb’s holdout continues into training camp, which begins in July.

Lamb is signed under the fifth-year option of his rookie deal and a salary of $17.9 million in 2024.

But following a 2023 season when Lamb led the NFL with 135 catches and set a franchise record with 1,735 yards, Lamb was never showing up without a new deal.

The four-year, $140 million extension signed by Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson on Monday has provided a blue print for a potential Lamb deal.

It certainly should jump start negotiations, which have been minimal at best thus far.
