Ceedee Lamb is “engaged” in conversations with the Cowboys; will these talks continue? The Carton Show | NFL

Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Ceedee Lamb was “engaged” in talks about his contracts, according to Mike McCarthy, after he skipped the required mini-camp. Craig Carton believes Ceedee Lamb will soon receive payment, and

Cowboys Solve Money Problems in Record-Setting Trade
Through a potential blockbuster transaction, the Dallas Cowboys are able to improve their financial position.

Since the conclusion of their season in January, the Dallas Cowboys have been a hot topic of conversation. They finished 12-5 and earned the second seed in the NFC, but the Green Bay Packers destroyed them in the opening round.

The Cowboys have been spoken about a lot since then, but not for the right reasons. Jerry Jones claimed the team will be aggressive in assembling a squad capable of winning a Super Bowl, but their lack of action proved that to be untrue.

In addition to that, the Cowboys haven’t extended any of their star players Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, or Micah Parsons this offseason. That has led to constant drama around the team.

With teams taking a break until training camp next month, the news around the league has been slow. Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox dropped an article on some hypothetical three-team trades that would shake up the league.

The Dallas Cowboys were included on the list and the deal goes down as follows:

Arizona Cardinals: WR Brandin Cooks, Detroit Lions 2025 fifth-round pick, Dallas Cowboys’ 2025 third-round pick
Dallas Cowboys: WR Donovan Peoples-Jones, RB Craig Reynolds, QB Hendon Hooker, Lions 2026 third-round pick
Detroit Lions: S Budda Baker

In this proposed deal, the Cowboys free up $8 million in cap space by dishing out Brandin Cooks. In exchange, they got Donovan Peoples-Jones, Craig Reynolds, and Hendon Hooker who combined for a total of $4 million against the cap in 2024.

As for Cooks, he was solid for the Cowboys in 2023, logging 657 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Despite those stats, he isn’t untouchable, especially with Dallas’ cap limitations ($10.1 million available).

If they did make this move, they would have around $14-15 million to work with as they are actively negotiating extensions for either Lamb, Prescott, or Parsons.

Lamb is the most likely one to be extended first so this extra cash would give Dallas more wiggle room at the negotiating table.

In addition, they would add low-cost playmakers to positions of need. Peoples-Jones was dealing with injuries over the past two years but when he’s healthy, he can be productive. He’s logged 122 catches for 1,895 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns across five seasons.

As for Reynolds, he would be a change of pace tailback who can also catch passes out of the backfield.

Dallas would also acquire Hooker, who has potential but is stuck on the bench behind Goff. There is a chance both Prescott and Trey Lance will be gone in 2025 and Hooker will provide some much-needed insurance.

Getting a third-round pick in 2026 along with additional draft money would be the icing on the cake.

If such an opportunity ever came up, it would be difficult for the Cowboys to pass it up. It’s not my fault, either.
