Frederick announced his retirement earlier this offseason but Dallas carried him on the roster until now in order to save cap as a June 1 designation.
Over The Cap’s Jason Fitzgerald writes the Cowboys should pick up $7 million in cap savings when Frederick’s retirement is processed after June 2.
Frederick missed the entire 2018 season with Guillain Barre Syndrome, which is 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.
Frederick, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He was entering the fifth year of his eight-year, $66.56 million that included $26.2 million guaranteed.
Frederick was set to make base salaries of $7 million and $6.8 million over the next two years of the agreement.
For his career, Frederick appeared in 96 games for the Cowboys, making 96 starts for them at center. He was a five-time Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro in 2016.
