Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver CeeDee Lamb thriving alongside star teammates

While speaking to the press recently, Cowboys rookie CeeDee Lamb spoke highly of his fellow teammates, Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Both his senior buddies racked up 1,000+ receiving yards in 2019. Lamb intends to do the same over the course of the 2020 season.

He said, “I feel the same way with them guys, just having each other’s back already early on in this process. Just understand what we’re trying to do here. We obviously have a goal for each and all three of us to have a 1,000 yards. We gonna work until it’s done,” Lamb said.

In addition to those two, Lamb also spoke about how franchise quarterback Dak Prescott helped him settle in during the offseason.

“Dak actually invited me and um it was actually like a surreal moment, just understanding that I play for the Dallas Cowboys now and Dak Prescott actually texted me and asked me to come over and work with him. It was, you know what I’m saying, an unbelievable moment. I took it all in and I embraced it. I felt like that was my opportunity to show the guys just what I can do early on,” the young wide receiver added while talking to the press.
