Cowboys Sign C Travis Frederick To Six-Year, $56.4M Extension With $28.2M Gtd

Rand Getlin of NFL Media reports the Cowboys have agreed to terms with C Travis Frederick on an extension that will make him the NFL’s highest paid center.

  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have signed Frederick to a six-year extension worth $56.4 million and includes $28 million in the first three years.
  • Rapoport adds that Frederick’s new deal includes $18.2 million fully guaranteed and $28.2 million in total guarantees.

The two sides had reportedly been in contract talks for a few weeks now in the hope of getting a long-term agreement in place before the start of the season, and it appears as though they’ve accomplished as much.

Frederick, 25, was taken with the No. 31 overall pick back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $6.8 million rookie contract and set to make a base salary of $1,341,822 for the 2016 season.

The Cowboys elected to pick up his fifth-year option a few months ago, which will run the Cowboys $8.8 million in 2017.

In 2015, Frederick appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 1 center out of 39 qualifying players.
