The Eagles signed veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick to a one-year contract Saturday.
A fifth-round pick out of Boise State, Scandrick has amassed 435 tackles, 27 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and nine interceptions in 140 career regular-season games (76 starts). Scandrick spent last season in Kansas City where he suited up for 15 games (seven starts) and accumulated 44 tackles and an interception. He also spent his first 10 seasons in the league as a staple for the division rival Dallas Cowboys secondary unit.
The signing of Scandrick comes at a pivotal time for the Eagles as the secondary comes into camp pretty banged up with injuries to key players such as Ronald Darby and Cre’Von LeBlanc.
I believe this move is much more than the Eagles adding another body in camp. I see Scandrick competing for not just a roster spot but a larger role in this revamped Eagles secondary. We will just have to see how this all plays out.
