Travis Frederick has agreed to terms on a six-year contract extension worth over $56 million, $28.2 million of it is guaranteed. This contract makes him the highest-paid center in the National Football League.
Frederick, 25, has started all 48 games of his career since he was drafted in the first round in 2013 by Dallas. He was named to the Pro Bowl both in 2014 and 2015. Since he’s made his debut, he’s been one of the best offensive linemen in the league. He, along with teammates Tyron Smith and Zack Martin have produced one of the greatest walls of offensive line in the NFL.
Prior to signing this new deal, Frederick was still under his rookie contract, which was set to expire after the 2018 season, but due to his great performances, the Cowboys knew they needed him, so they made the right call by securing him until 2023.
