Travis Frederick announces his retirement from the NFL

In an offseason that already had the Dallas Cowboys wobbling with a flurry of losses in free agency, a large and unexpected departure dropped on Monday, with All-Pro center Travis Frederick announcing his retirement.

Travis Frederick - who missed the entire 2018 season due to Guillain-Barre syndrome before returning past year - has retired from the NFL.

Frederick missed the entire 2018 season while receiving treatment for the disease and returned to action in 2019, earning his fifth and final Pro Bowl honor.

"I started a journey nearly two years ago that completely blindsided me", Frederick said.

Frederick is married with two young children and said the Guillian-Barre diagnosis caused him to rethink his priorities. But even though he made his fifth Pro Bowl, Frederick was clear in his retirement announcement he didn't think he was the same player from before the illness. Since then, I have married, welcomed two healthy sons and handsome to the world, and reached levels of professionalism that would never have dreamed of " wrote Frederick in its press release. "I don't know if I've been around a player that everyone trusted so much so quickly".

"Facing the potential end of my career because of my illness forced me to imagine life after football", Frederick wrote.

Frederick came to Dallas as a recruit of the first round in 2013, N° 31 global, from the University of Wisconsin. "His leadership ability, production and intelligence put him at the top level of interior offensive lineman in our league for many years".

Frederick signed a six-year, $56.4million contract extension prior to the 2016 season. Every season he took the field, Frederick was one of the premier centers in the game.

Travis Frederick, lengthy component of a solid Cowboys offending line, retired.

If McGovern isn't immediately up to the task, Joe Looney, who filled in for Frederick in 2018, will also do, in a pinch.

"As a contributor to our community, a family man and a professional person, he has distinguished himself as an exemplary representative of this organization", Jones' statement continued. "Best of luck to the 2020 Dallas Cowboys and the franchise in the future".
