When asked how his retirement prior to last season, has affected the downfall of the Cowboys offensive line… Frederick responds “I don’t think there’s a lot that’s directly related but I do think injuries play a huge part in that. I’m really excited to see when everybody gets back. When they get back in the game. They’ll be back to the top level in no time. I’m certain of that”.

With a desire to draft 10 donors to his team Thursday, and the Cowboys having the 10th pick in the draft, who would Travis take if he was making the pick?

He answers “On a team with so many players and so much ebb and flow… I think taking the best available is an important strategy”.
