Cowboys and center Travis Frederick agree to new deal

Just prior to the preseason opener in Los Angeles, the Cowboys and center Travis Frederick reached an agreement on a six-year extension worth $56.4 million, according to NFL Media’s Rand Getlin and Ian Rapoport.

The former 2013 first-round draft pick out of the University of Wisconsin was considered to many as a “bad pick” at the time, primarily due to the criticism of the Cowboys choosing to pass on a defensive lineman. Frederick quickly proved his worth, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl in each of the past two seasons while anchoring the league’s most dominant offensive line.

Frederick’s new deal surpassed Alex Mack’s five-year, $45 million dollar deal with the Falcons.
