The Cowboys traded Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns this offseason, vaulting CeeDee Lamb to the No. 1 receiver role in Dallas.

Lamb told Mike Silver on the Open Mike podcast that he was working out when he saw the news, Kevin Patr of reports.

"I was actually in the gym. I saw it. It was on TV. I was working out in Fort Lauderdale in my offseason program, and I saw it on TV, and I was like, 'Wow, that's crazy,'" Lamb said. "And then my phone started blowing up literally minutes after. It's been a crazy story ever since."

Despite being caught "by surprise" by the Cooper trade, Lamb said he's ready for the challenge.

"That's a lot to take in. It kind of happened so fast, but I feel like that's a situation I'm ready to take on," he said of being the No. 1 receiver for the Cowboys. "Honestly, it kind of, in a sense, raised the standard. Obviously, I hold myself to a high standard already, but obviously, at this moment, there's nothing else you can really do but take it on. That's the energy I have."

amb said he texted with Cooper after the trade went down.

"Just wanted to thank him for everything he had done for me in the first two years," he said. "Those are real important to me and my direction and trying to find a place in this league where there's a lot of great receivers. A lot of guys who do a lot of things well in this position. Just giving him his roses for taking me under his wing."
