Would A Trade for CeeDee Lamb Put Jalen Hurts Back on Track?

This week, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb wasn’t shy about declaring what he wants next from his NFL career.

A large contract.

“That is the goal,” said Lamb from a transcript from The Athletic this week.

Turning twenty-five years old this year, his NFL career has already been significant.

For a Cowboys franchise already with a long-history of #88’s (Michael Irvin, Dez Bryant, Drew Pearson,) Lamb is already sketched into the NFL record books.

A three-time Pro Bowler and both first and second team All-Pro, he holds Dallas Cowboy Franchise Records for most receptions in a season (125 and 1,749, respectively.)

He also holds NFL records for most consecutive games with 10 receptions and 150+ yards in a season and most games with 11+ receptions.

At the University of Oklahoma, one of the best things for CeeDee Lamb was getting Jalen Hurts. Hurts had transferred from Alabama after a career with the Crimson Tide included being benched in the 2nd half of the 2018 National Championship Game.

Against Texas in the third quarter, Hurts found Lamb on a flee flicker. Lamb did the rest scoring and breaking a 10–10 tie. In just three seasons in Norman, Lamb accounted for 173 receptions for 3,292 yards and 32 touchdowns.

With a larger contract being top-of-mind for Lamb, and living up to a franchise contract for Hurts — 

Could a reunion that was successful in Norman Oklahoma happen in Philly adding CeeDee Lamb to the Eagles Pro Bowl wide receiver room?

Well, we can dream about it.
