Travis Frederick On Track To Be Cowboys' Starting Center

Jun 14, 2013 8:32 PM

Travis Frederick is on track to be the starting center of the Dallas Cowboys in 2013.

Frederick was the Cowboys' first round pick.

“I feel a lot more comfortable now than when I first came in,” Frederick said. “Right now the focus has changed a little bit from learning the big-picture things and the plays to really focusing on the little things and trying to get better at the technique. By getting better at the technique it makes everything a lot easier. It’s starting to slow down a little bit as far as running up to the ball and seeing things and trying to see the big picture.”

The Dallas Cowboys are replacing the field turf in their stadium due to wear and tear after just four seasons.

The hope is that the new turf will last longer, though Cowboys Stadium has hosted many events that forced the field to be rolled up and stored.

The Cowboys will look to replace their college and high school field in the future but nothing has been finalized.

Sanchez, Romo, McFadden Amongst NFL's Worst Contracts

Jun 5, 2013 2:20 PM

The NFL's new collective bargaining agreement is undoubtedly favorable to the owners, particularly when it comes to players on their initial contracts out of the draft.

Players like Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson are on extraordinarily cap-friendly deals.

Mark Sanchez, Tony Romo and Matt Schaub were identified as having the worst contracts at the quarterback position. Sanchez will earn $8.8 million this season and counts against the cap at $12.9 million. Romo's new deal will pay him $25 million in year one and average $18 million over five seasons.

Jonathan Stewart and Darren McFadden have the worst contracts at running back, while Mike Wallace and Santonio Holmes are featured at wide receiver.

Champ Bailey, Antonio Cromartie and Carlos Rogers receive special distinction at cornerback and are joined in the secondary by safeties LaRon Landry and Troy Polamalu.

Mario Williams, Ryan Pickett, Gerald McCoy and Jay Ratliff are all on huge deals on the defensive line.

David Harris, Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler are all overpaid at linebacker.
