Travis Fredrick retires

       Cowboys' five-time Pro-Bowl center Travis Frederick has announced his retirement on Twitter today. It was a shock to a fan base that fell in love with the scraggly-bearded, soft-spoken, teddybear of a center.

Frederick missed the entire 2018 season with Guillain Barre Syndrome - a rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. He was, however, able to return to the Cowboys last year and didn't miss a game.

At the height of his career, Frederick teamed with six-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith and five-time Pro Bowl right guard Zack Martin to lead a dominant offensive line.

Frederick, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys in 2013. He was entering the fifth year of his eight-year, $66.56 million that included $26.2 million guaranteed that ran through 2023.

Frederick was set to make $7 million this season and $6.8 million over the next two years of the agreement. It's unclear if the Cowboys will ask for his signing bonus back for this season, but they'll carry  an $11.3M dead cap hit this season.

For his career, Frederick appeared in 96 games for the Cowboys, making 96 starts at center. He was a first-team All-Pro in 2016.
