    It would be an understatement to say that the organization is proud of their offensive line. Not only are they among the best in the entire league, but they are young and talented. That is something that is sometimes difficult to keep together, but that is exactly what and Company are looking to do.

    The Cowboys have already locked up left for years to come with a long-term contract, now they are trying to do the same with Travis Frederick.

    Frederick was a first-round draft pick in 2013 and not only has he started all 48 games in his first three years in the NFL, but he is also made two consecutive Pro Bowls. That's pretty impressive for a guy that was highly criticized for being drafted in the by the Cowboys.

    In his brief career, has already developed into one of the best centers in the entire NFL and to be perfectly honest, he is vastly underappreciated for what he does.

    Frederick is currently in the fourth year of his rookie deal, making just over $1.3 million. The Cowboys have already exercised his fifth year option, but are looking to lock him up long-term just like they did with Tyron Smith.

    In fact, an offer might just already be on the table.

    It's not surprising that the dialogue between the Dallas Cowboys and Joe Panos (Frederick's agent) has already started. Panos was spotted over the weekend attending in , California.

    The Cowboys already have a good working relationship with Joe Panos. Not only does he represent Travis Frederick, but he also handled the long-term contract between the Cowboys and Tyron Smith.

    With the line of communication already open, let's just hope it's just a matter of time until terms can be agreed upon that are agreeable to all parties.

    I fully expect Travis Frederick to become the highest-paid center in the NFL once a long-term contract is finalized.

    As things stand now, Alex Mack's contract is probably what negotiations will be based upon. Mack recently signed a deal with the worth $45 million over five years, $28.5 million of that is fully guaranteed.

    Now, Mack is five years older than Travis Frederick (25), so you can imagine that Frederick would receive a better long-term contract.

    I personally wouldn't be surprised if Frederick's contract is somewhere in the range of $60 million with $35 million of that fully guaranteed.

    Whatever the numbers end up being, I for one will be glad to know that Travis Frederick will be a member of the Dallas Cowboys for years to come.

    has invested heavily in the offensive line in the past several years and this signifies that they are going to do their best to keep the unit intact for the foreseeable future.

    This is extremely good news considering the fact 's career is coming to an end and having a dominant veteran offensive line in place for his successor would be a huge advantage for a young .

    Do you think Travis Frederick is a good long-term investment?

    Ummm YES it would be very good investment

    That shouldn't even be a question on here, to say it isn't would be moronic.
