Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb said he is not worried about his contract extension discussions heading into the upcoming season.

"Quite honestly -- I'll be 100 percent honest -- I'm not even distracted," said Lamb, who had his fifth-year, $17.99 million option picked up in April. "The money, definitely worried about it, but it's not something that's on my mind every day or when I come to the building. I'm not thinking about how much money I'm gonna make if I do this. It's really all about coming in, showing my worth, and letting everything else handle itself."

Lamb, the team's first-round pick in 2020, earned his second Pro Bowl selection in 2022 after recording team-leading totals in catches (107), receiving yards (1,359) and receiving touchdowns (nine). The 107 receptions were the third most in team history during a single season.

His 260 career catches are the most in the first three seasons for any player in Cowboys history. Lamb, 24, also has totaled 3,396 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.
