The Cowboys continue to discuss cornerback Orlando Scandrick‘s future, with all options still on the table, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

It has appeared for awhile that Scandrick is on his way out in Dallas, and he has told Anderson he could benefit from a “change of scenery.”

The Cowboys would prefer to trade Scandrick than to cut him, and they tried to do just that last year during the draft. They wanted Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro in return for Scandrick.

If they move Byron Jones from safety to corner as expected, the Cowboys will have a logjam at the position.

Scandrick, 31, made 38 tackles, no interceptions and three pass breakups in 11 games last season before going on injured reserve.

  1. He has 8 int’s In 9 years, and he’s 31…who is trading anything for that?

  2. I think they will move on. Scandrick had trouble in coverage
    and was often called for holding, it seemed as if the refs were
    on to him. In addition to being a negative in coverage ..
    Scandrick tackling was very poor. It seems how and Jones
    both were intent on avoiding any contact when making a tackle.,
    At the end of the year it was obvious that the staff had decided that
    they could no longer allow Scandrick and Jones to play.
    Scandrickand Jones were lost in coverage and even worse in
    Wood and others at least were willing to take on a running backs and
    tackle. I think Scandrick is done and the Cowboys are looking for some
    way to make a bad number one pick in Jones somehow be productive.,

  3. Scandrck can still play but he dies really need a change of scenery just like, church, clairborne and carr they all did well after they left the cowboys.The defense has too Mich pressure to perform but not enough of guys having a good time as they play together.

  4. What Dallas should be doing is trying to package deal him and send him to Seattle to get Thomas. Makes perfect sense and pay Thomas what he deserves. Takes drafting a safety out of thoughts, and he can have our young revamped without worry. Hes played his entire career under our new db coach and can mold these young play makers into stardom for years to come
