Redskins signed CB Orlando Scandrick to a two-year contract.
Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal has a max value of $10 million. Scandrick's play has slipped in recent years, primarily due to injuries. He just turned 31 years old and will replace Kendall Fuller as Washington's slot corner. Fantasy leaguers should proactively start slot receivers against the Skin this year. Mar 19 - 2:22 PM

Free agent CB Orlando Scandrick will visit with the Redskins on Sunday.

Scandrick has spent his entire nine-year career in the NFC East. Washington needs corners after moving on from Bashaud Breeland and makes sense as a landing spot. They've also been linked to Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Cowboys released CB Orlando Scandrick.

This was expected after Scandrick asked for his release last week. The Cowboys save $3 million from making Scandrick a post June cut and leave $2.3 million in dead money. Scandrick graded as one of the worst starters in the league before missing the final three games with a back injury and landing on IR. The Cowboys are considering moving Byron Jones back to corner this season.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team will likely release or trade CB Orlando Scandrick.

Scandrick turned 31 earlier this month. Announcing a player will either be cut or traded would seem to wash away any trade leverage the team had, so expect Scandrick to eventually be released. Scandrick has two years left on his deal and cutting him would save just $1.4 million against the cap, leaving $3.88 million in dead money. Making him a post-June 1 cut, the Cowboys would save $3 million against the cap in 2018 and spread the dead-money hit over the next two years. Scandrick's play fell off last year before a back injury in December.

Cowboys placed CB Orlando Scandrick (back) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Scandrick has missed the last three games with a transverse process fracture and wasn't going to be ready for Sunday's finale in Philadelphia. The longtime Cowboy struggled this season, earning PFF's No. 105 grade out of 121 qualifiers at cornerback. Scandrick still has one year left on his contract but with Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis starting to play bigger roles, he's not a lock to return in 2018.

Cowboys declared CB Orlando Scandrick, DT Richard Ash, WR Brice Butler, LB Justin Durant, DL David Irving, TE Blake Jarwin and LB Justin March-Lillard inactive for Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Scandrick will miss his third straight game with a transverse process fracture. La'el Collins (back), Benson Mayowa (back) and Tyron Smith (back, knee) are all active for Dallas.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (questionable, back) is not expected to play Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Scandrick got in three limited practices this week but still isn't game-ready. He hasn't played since suffering a transverse process fracture in Week 13. Slot receiver Doug Baldwin should benefit the most from Scandrick's absence.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 08:44:00 AM

Scandrick was always expected to miss at least two games with his back injury. The Cowboys also ruled out DL David Irving (concussion) and LB Justin Durant (concussion) for Sunday night's game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will miss "one or more games" after suffering two transverse process fractures in his back Thursday against the Redskins.

He suffered the injury early in the game but somehow played through it. Derek Carr suffered a similar injury earlier this year and only sat out one game, which suggests Scandrick could be back as soon as Week 15 versus Oakland. Xavier Woods is a candidate to fill in at slot corner.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) will practice on Thursday.

Scandrick was not able to play Week 2 after suffering a broken hand in the season opener, but he said on Wednesday he plans to play on Monday night. Practicing on Thursday puts him on track. After being shredded by Emmanuel Sanders last week, the Cowboys need Scandrick back in the lineup.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) plans to play against the Cardinals in Week 3.

Scandrick sat out Sunday's game in Denver with a fractured left hand but plans to be a full go this week. His return should force rookie Chidobe Awuzie back to the bench.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is out for Week 2 against the Broncos.

Scandrick couldn't get the green light after suffering a broken left hand in Week 1. Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Awuzie will start on the outside Sunday with Anthony Brown at slot corner.
Fri, Sep 15, 2017 03:23:00 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is not practicing Thursday.

Scandrick underwent surgery to have a plate inserted into his broken left hand on Monday. Despite the operation, Scandrick had designs on playing this week, but it does not look like that will happen. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie will see more snaps if Scandrick is forced to sit.

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick suffered a broken left hand Sunday night against the Giants.

Scandrick underwent surgery to have a plate inserted Monday. Coach Jason Garrett is optimistic the corner will return "sooner rather than later," but Scandrick missed the final five games of 2012 with a broken hand. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie will see more snaps if Scandrick is forced to miss time.
