During training camp in California two years ago, Frederick saw a specialist there because of feelings he said were similar to stingers in his neck and shoulders. All four have been a key ingredient in what many have called the best offensive line in football over the last six years.

In a shocking announcement via his own Twitter account, perennial Pro Bowler center Travis Frederick retired from the National Football League at the age of 29.

However, the offensive lineman missed the entire 2018 season due to Guillain-Barre syndrome, an auto-immune disorder that damages the nervous system.

'I spent much of that year thinking about both the past and future, ' Frederick said. However, in the statement, he says it was "a hard year" and "playing "well" is not what I expect of myself and is not what my teammates deserve".

While some might suggest. "When I developed Guillian-Barre Syndrome, I did not know how to handle things".

"I am so thankful for the last 7 years; however, I look forward to the next chapter of life".

Frederick revealed his retirement in a lengthy letter, beginning it by writing: "After much consideration, discussion, and reflection, I have chose to retire from football".

Frederick has been an outstanding performer for the Cowboys since he was drafted in the first round of the 2013 draft - making the Pro Bowl on five occasions. I was scared. That experience forced me to reevaluate my life and my priorities. I realized how lucky I was for having made friends and become a team mate of great men.

"I am proud of what I have accomplished in my career, and I walk away with my head held high", Frederick wrote in his statement via Twitter.

Frederick does not know what he will do, but said that he and his wife Kaylee "will continue to make a positive impact on the Dallas community".

After a hectic week for the Dallas Cowboys in totally free firm in which the group positioned the franchise business tag on quarterback Dak Prescott, re-signed pass receiver Amari Cooper, as well as shed cornerback Byron Jones, a much more unusual action began Monday.

Frederick was asked frequently how he was feeling and how he thought he was playing during a season that started with high expectations for the Cowboys but ended without a trip to the playoffs.
