The Dallas Cowboys have all seven of their 2013 draft picks in the fold.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the final holdout, first rounder Travis Frederick, was inked on Tuesday to a four-year deal worth $6.9 million. The deal includes a club option for a fifth year.
The chance to add this club option actually played a role in the Cowboys’ decision to take Frederick in the first round. Had they waited until the second round, even if he were still on the board, Dallas wouldn’t have had this option.
“We wanted to get [Frederick] in the first round because we wanted five years on him. If you get out of that first round, you don’t get it,” Jones said shortly after the draft. “That’s a big year for an interior lineman if he’s a good one.”
The Cowboys certainly expect him to be a good one. He will enter his first NFL training camp next month as the team’s starting center.
