Contrary to popular belief, tension wasn’t in the air at CeeDee Lamb’s house Thursday night.
The Dallas Cowboys first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and his girlfriend, Crymson Rose, both explained why she grabbed his phone and he instantly re-took it as he learned his draft fate. Millions of viewers were watching on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network broadcasts when it happened, and the internet, of course, had jokes and collectively jumped to the conclusion Lamb didn’t want his girlfriend going through his phone while his attention lay elsewhere.
However, that wasn’t the case, according to the two main protagonists in one of the highest-profile scenes of the opening night of the NFL Draft.
“y?all really gotta chill wasn?t even like dat ??,” Lamb wrote Thursday night on Twitter.

While Lamb, the No. 17 overall pick, merely denied the accusations about Rose, she set the record straight.
“His agent was FACETIMING him while he was on the phone with the Cowboys, I was doing the GF thing gonna answer it for him sheesh,” Rose wrote.

Well, it looks like we can close this case and look forward to whatever unintentional drama Night 2 of the NFL Draft will bring.
