Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb is being sued by a trading card firm for a breach of contract, according to Mike Fisher of SI.com. The 23-year-old is accused of not fulfilling an agreement for Leaf Trading Cards that required the receiver to autograph the cards.

The 23-year-old did sign some items for the company. However, it was deemed not enough to fulfill his contract. The company, based in Dallas, filed a lawsuit against Lamb in Denton County, Texas.

Anything involving the Dallas Cowboys is sure to catch the attention of fans, and this was no exception. Many took to social media once the news dropped.

One fan tweeted, suggesting that they weren't surprised that a Cowboys player was involved:

"[It's] a Cowboys player, suprised?"
@ProFootballTalk Its a Cowboys player, surprised?

Another fan appeared upset about the situation coming to this and hoped it would get resolved quickly.

@ProFootballTalk Sad it came down to this, hope it get resolved quickly.

One fan said that Lamb had fulfilled his obligations and hasn't done anymore since and that he is now getting sued for not fulfilling his contract.

@CardPurchaser @ProFootballTalk He only fulfilled some of his Autograph obligations and hasn't done anymore since... now hes getting sued for not fulfilling his contract to autograph cards or stickers for cards

One fan wants the receiver to get suspended over the incident.

@ProFootballTalk suspend him, deserved

Another user posted and said that the receiver has to abide by his contract and that it is only signatures.

@ProFootballTalk Get that scrub. Abide by the contract. It's literally just signatures.

A fan named Brandon said that it is always a Cowboy, hinting that players from the franchise are always getting in trouble.

Always a Cowboy... twitter.com/ProFootballTal…

One user noted that Lamb was the last player from his draft class to not get in trouble, but only until now.

He was the last one from his class to not get in trouble. Bang twitter.com/ProFootballTal…

Another user suggested that the Cowboys terminate Lamb's contract.

A New York Giants fan account wrote "Good for them" for the organization suing the receiver.

CeeDee Lamb and Cowboys hoping for an improved season

The Cowboys had an up-and-down season last year. In the playoffs, Dallas had a home-field advantage, finishing the regular season with a 12-5 record and winning the division. But it didn't matter.

Dallas lost to the San Francisco 49ers, getting bundled out of the playoffs after Dak Prescott failed to get the ball clocked in time for one last Hail Mary attempt.

Lamb, in just his second season, topped the 1,000-yard mark for receiving yards and had six touchdowns as he was named to the Pro Bowl. Now without Amari Cooper, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns, Lamb will have to take his game to the next level.

Likely to have the defense's No. 1 lock-down player, Lamb will need to progress in his game quickly. Still, with Michael Gallup coming off a long injury layoff, Dallas will need their pick No. 17 from the 2020 NFL Draft to have a monster year to challenge for the Super Bowl.
