NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Frederick, Giants

The biggest advantage for the Cowboys in the Travis Frederick deal comes in the length of the pact, Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap writes. Dallas locked Frederick in at ~$10MM in for the sixth year (2023) while other centers with comparable deals are free agents after five. If he maintains his level of play, that 2023 salary should be a discount of a few million if the cap continues to rise. Centers generally have long careers, so there’s a good chance that Frederick will still be a solid player at that point.
