CeeDee Lamb has packed on the muscles for this upcoming season.
The Dallas Cowboys are relying heavily on CeeDee Lamb in 2022 after they traded away Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns. Many wide receivers have taken a leap during their third season in the NFL, in fact the last one to wear number 88 before Lamb, Dez Bryant, did so.
To carry that load, Lamb has put on some more muscle. Per The Athletic’s Jon Machota, Lamb said he added 10 pounds of muscle during the offseason.
“I’ve been ready,” Lamb said of becoming the team’s No. 1 wide receiver. “That’s just me and my competitiveness. That’s in my nature. I’m always ready for my name to be called.”
Last season, Lamb pulled down 79 receptions for 1,102 yards. With Cooper gone, Lamb could receive even more than last year’s 120 targets.
When asked about Lamb embracing his role, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy responded, “He has to.”
Cooper is in Cleveland. Cedrick Wilson is in Miami and Michael Gallup is expected to miss the start of the season as he rehabs from a torn ACL.
