Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has had a lot going on in the past six months. He is preparing to become the No. 1 wide receiver for the Cowboys. Recently, CeeDee shared a bit about the offseason and revealed he gained some extra weight and muscles.

CeeDee Lamb was selected in the 2020 NFL draft as an overall 17th pick. He is one of the strongest receivers that have helped improve the offensive side of the Cowboys. Now, with the extra gains, he will be in the limelight while sharing the space with other Cowboys quarterbacks – Michael Gallup, James Washington, Dalton Schultz, Simi Fehoko, and Jalen Tolbert.

It is amazing to see that in six months, Lamb has transformed his body. In the last season, his height and weight were 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds, respectively. Although, it is not necessary for him to get that NFL size as it never affected his game. Still, adding weight will prove beneficial for him.

His ability to catch the ball makes him one of the best. But, now that he has that NFL-size body, he will seem more dangerous in the upcoming season. That’s not it, QB Dak Prescott eventually told CeeDee to shift his locker near him. So, someone out there is definitely helping him out.

No doubt, Lamb is the team’s best receiver, and he has stated he is more than ready to step up. Last year, he had a career-high 1,102-yard season and is expected to have another big year this fall. Perhaps the extra ten pounds will aid him in progressing to the next level.
