Cowboys Not Interested In Discussing A New Contract With CB Orlando Scandrick?

Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports that Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick, who is skipping the team’s offseason workouts, plans to stay away from the team until they address his contract.

However, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones mentioned in an interview on Tuesday that Scandrick should be working out with the team and added that they just reworked his contract a few years ago.

He’s under contract, but not unlike a lot of players, they’d like to have more,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “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.

“He’s a leader on this team, and we certainly need him out here. In my mind, he should be out here right now, working out.

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.
