Dallas Cowboys veteran center Travis Frederick believes that he won’t be able to make it back to the field this season, but is holding out hope that he can return to the team next season, saying he feels “very good” about his chances in 2019.
Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome before the start of the season, causing numbness in both of his arms, among other various symptoms.
“I have certainly made progress, but at this point in the season, having not been able to do my football movements. … Even if I was 100 percent strength wise to be able to come back and play. … I’m still six or eight weeks out from that,” Frederick said, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan.
Frederick is under contract with Dallas through the 2023 season.
Cowboys Progressing in Contract Talks with Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper
A potential new deal for Prescott could clock in around $30 million annually, but the Cowboys seem to be okay with that figure.
A new contract for Cooper could come in no less than $16 million per year, and Cooper is still under contract for the 2019 season, via the fifth year option, at $13.92 million
Cowboys’ Sean Lee to Start in 2019
Dallas Cowboys veteran linebacker Sean Lee may be behind the likes of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith on the depth chart, but he is still expected to start for Dallas during the 2019 season.
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence E. Hill Jr., while Lee is expected to backup Vander Esch at weakside linebacker and Smith at middle linebacker at times, he will start as the Cowboys’ strongside linebacker in 2019.
Lee starting in that position allows him to take over for Damien Wilson, who signed with the Kansas City Chiefs during free agency this offseason.
While Lee, who took a significant paycut to return to Dallas this offseason, won’t see as much playing time in that role, it is still a starting job.
Cowboys’ Amari Cooper Not Worried About New Contract
When it comes to ironing out a new contract with the Dallas Cowboys, wide receiver Amari Cooper is focusing on earning the new deal with his play on the field.
Cooper is currently slated to make $13.9 million this upcoming season, and the Cowboys are making it a priority to work out a new deal with Cooper.
“It’s kind of weird situation, just being that I’ve never been in this situation before, talking about a contract,” Cooper said, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas News.
“But also, I’m under a fifth-year option, so I’m not too familiar with it. I really don’t ask my agent many questions. I’m not really worried about it that much.
“I’m more focused on actually playing and really earning the respect and then the contract.”
Cooper hauled in 53 receptions for 725 yards and six touchdowns last season for the Cowboys.
