Well, at least one of the Texas teams is taking care of its 2013 first-round draft pick.

With the Texans refusing to negotiate with receiver DeAndre Hopkins, the Cowboys have negotiated to completion a deal with center Travis Frederick, per multiple reports.

According to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, it’s a six-year, $56.4 million extension, making Frederick the highest-paid center in the NFL. If it’s truly an “extension,” it puts Frederick under contract for eight years, through 2023.

Frederick was the 31st pick in the 2013 draft, taken four spots after Hopkins. Frederick has started all 48 regular-season games of his career.
