Hill points out that Cowboys VP Stephen Jones previously said that they would would be address their cornerback situation following the draft, so it appears as though Scandrick is their first order of business.
Jones, interestingly enough, said during an interview with 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] not too long ago that they just signed Scandrick to a new contract a few years ago, which seemed like they weren’t interested in broaching the subject again.
“He’s under contract, but not unlike a lot of players, they’d like to have more,” Jones said previously. “Orlando is under contract. If something makes sense for us to add some years or do something then we’ll take a look at that, but we just re-did Orlando’s contract a couple years ago and he’s been a really good football player for us.
Scandrick, 28, has been the Cowboys best cornerback in recent years and is grossly under paid for his level of play in terms of market value.
He still has another four years remaining on his six-year, $28.2 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed. Scandrick will make base salaries of $1.5 million (2015), and $3 million from 2016 – 2018.
In 2014, Scandrick appeared in 14 games and recorded 55 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, fourced fumbles, and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 cornerback out of 110 qualifying players.
