CeeDee Lamb’s production as a rookie wideout was one of the few bright spots for the Dallas Cowboys last season. Now, he’s out to prove that he can be the next great playmaker to wear No. 88 for “America’s Team.”
The Cowboys officially reported for camp on Wednesday in Oxnard, California. The first few days of camp were pretty uneventful, but the team is finally on the practice field putting together quality reps.
During this Saturday’s practice, Lamb made an impressive catch while being covered by second-year cornerback Trevon Diggs.
Although the pass was a bit outside, Lamb managed to go across his body and make a one-handed catch. It almost looked like a routine grab for the Oklahoma product just because he’s so athletic.

Lamb revealed his mindset for the 2021 season in an interview earlier this offseason. He’s hopeful that he can take that next step in his progression.
“I want to focus on me being better for the team and definitely want to be as impactful on the team as I possibly can,” Lamb said, per Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News. “Naturally, the team will get better. We started a whole new system if you will. We got a new defensive coordinator. Offensively, we got everybody back. It’s a whole new role. I’m looking to be a better version of myself. To be better than last year and if everyone has that mind-set as a collective group we’ll be better.”
Last season, Lamb had 74 receptions for 935 yards and five touchdowns. With Dak Prescott under center for the 2021 season, Lamb’s production should only increase for Dallas.
