Breaking: Travis Frederick has shaved his beard as he has enters retirement. As he expands his Blocking Hunger Foundation, the retired Cowboys center opted to get rid of the beard. “It's coming back but it's definitely more cleaned and trimmed up,” he said. “It's not the football beard. I had a responsibility to grow the beard because I had a job that allowed it. Once you step out into the business world, it's a little less acceptable to run around with a shaggy beard.”

With Aldon Smith reinstated, Randy Gregory remains in the return process, according to his agent, Peter Schaffer. Gregory, who applied for reinstatement after Smith, has had multiple violations of the substance-abuse policy since 2015. “We are very happy for Alden and wish him all the luck in the world and a successful resumption of his career,” Schaffer said. “It's refreshing to see the NFL following through on their stated goal to focus more on rehabbing players than punishing players.”
