Breaking News: Cowboys C Travis Frederick Announces Retirement

After a week of strategic free agent moves that added valuable talent to the roster, the Dallas Cowboys were just dealt a major blow. Via his own twitter account, All-Pro Center Travis Frederick has announced his retirement from the NFL at only 29 years old.

Frederick was the 31st overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. He started all 96 games that he was eligible to play in. Over his brief six-year career Frederick built a reputation for being one of if not the best at his position. He made five Pro Bowls (2014-2017, 2019) and was selected to three All-Pro teams (2014-2016).

After a battle with Guillian-Barre Syndrome forced him to miss the entire 2018 season Frederick returned to the field and played well this past year. However, according to Frederick himself, playing “well” wasn’t good enough as he feels he can no longer perform at the level he and his teammates are accustomed to.

Therefore, the Cowboys anchor on the offensive line is calling it a career, on his terms, which we all have to respect. More details to come.

What do you think?

  1. Thank you Travis for your great play and professionalism. All the best to you going forward.

    Joe Looney filled in well while Frederick was out , but probably not a long term starter guy, more of a backup. Connor McGovern played center at Penn State at least one year, but he seems to be rated better at guard. But he does have that flexibility. So now do we draft a center?

    Well, another Wisconsin product, All American and Rimington Award Winner in 2019, three-year starter Tyler Biadasz, may be he answer. Excels at RUN BLOCKING! Polished and proven, plug-and-play Guy!

    Matt Hennessy, out of Temple, and Lloyd Cushenberry, out of LSU, also are worthy of consideration.
