Scandrick was released by the Cowboys this week.
Scandrick had requested his release from the team.
At the end of last season, Scandrick thought his time with the Cowboys was coming to an end, with the team using rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis at outside cornerback, and safety Xavier Woods in the slot, as he dealt with a back injury. The Cowboys also intend to move Byron Jones back to cornerback in 2018 after he started the past two seasons at safety.
The Cowboys drafted Scandrick out of Boise State in the fifth round of the 2008 draft. He played in 125 games, including 69 starts, in his career with the Cowboys.
He had eight interceptions, 64 passes defensed and 11.5 sacks with Dallas.
Scandrick’s best season was 2014 when he was named second-team All-Pro. He started 14 games, recorded two interceptions, nine passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one sack for a Cowboys squad that won the NFC East.
