Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb has made his decision

This doesn't exactly bode well.

The Dallas Cowboys have started mandatory minicamp, but one notable absence will certainly have fans concerned. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is nowhere to be found, as he continues his holdout while hoping to land a new bigger, more lucrative contract. 

However, that doesn't mean that he's not "engaged" in the words of head coach Mike McCarthy.

"CeeDee’s in a business situation but everybody’s engaged,” McCarthy told reporters at the start of mandatory minicamp. “I’ve got no qualms about our best being ready. He's been engaged. I can just tell ya that. He's been engaged."

"I think CeeDee's one of the best players in the NFL," team owner and general manager Jerry Jones explained earlier this year in April. "I think he's very instrumental because of his position to quarterback success, personally. I think if you look at complementary football, he does it all there for you. He's multifaceted in where we can line him up, the type things we can use him for. He's dedicated in his practice and he's sound physically. That puts him really right there at the top as far as a player. I'm trying to answer your question. I guess the answer is without saying anymore, I think he's one of the top players in the NFL."

Lamb is set to enter the 5th year of his rookie contract that will see him earn a fully guaranteed $17.991 million. The 1,749 yards that Lamb amassed last season have already broken the franchise record of 1,603 set by team legend Michael Irvin.

Can the two sides come to an agreement before his price tag increases dramatically?
