Cowboys Pro Bowl C Frederick announces retirement

Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick stunningly announced his retirement on Monday.Frederick, who turned 29 last Wednesday, was a Pro Bowl selection in five of his six NFL seasons.Frederick revealed his retirement in a lengthy letter, beginning it by writing: “After much consideration, discussion, and reflection, I have decided to retire from football. This was not an easy decision.”Frederick cited his bout with the autoimmune disease Guillain-Barre syndrome as a factor. He missed the 2018 season due to the illness in which the body’s immune system attacks nerves, but he returned to be a standout again last season.”I started a journey almost two years ago that completely blindsided me,” Frederick wrote. “When I developed Guillian-Barre Syndrome, I did not know how to handle things. I was scared. That experience forced me to reevaluate my life priorities. I spent much of that year thinking about both the past and future. I realized how fortunate I was to play a game for a living. I realized how fortunate I was to make friends and become teammates with some great men.”Most of all, I realized the importance of my family and how much I want to be there for their peaks and valleys as they were for me.”Football is risky. Each day, players go to work knowing this could be their last day playing. Facing the potential end of my career because of my illness forced me to imagine life after football.”
