Cee Dee Lamb Talked To Michael Irvin About Taking Cowboys Number
Cee Dee Lamb recently talked to Michael Irvin about taking his Cowboys number.
The number 88 has a long and storied legacy, and Lamb is aware of that.
“I had the option of picking of 10 or 88, and then I picked 10,” Lamb said during a recent radio interview.
“Then I kind of went more in-depth, understanding the situation and tradition, and how much (88) means to the organization. And the great legends and what they’ve with that number, it’s kind of like, why not keep the tradition going? Just trying to keep the legacy of 88 going in Dallas.”
“I called Mike Irvin right before everything got announced. We talked about the tradition and the respect I have for him and that number, and how much of an edge he’s given me while wearing that number … how much of a goal and dream that I have … when I look down and see 88, it’s kind of a reminder. When I see 88, it’s going to remind me of who wore it before me.”
Will Lamb be able to live up to expectations? Time will tell.
