LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – Orlando, Dallas, D.C. Veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick is staying in the NFC East division.

In a deal first reported by Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, former Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick signed with the Washington Redskins. According to Garafolo, it’s a two-year contract.

Scandrick, 31 years old, was originally selected by the Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. In ten seasons with the ‘Boys, Scandrick started 69 games – but just 21 the last three seasons as he’s dealt with injury issues.

Last season, a year in which he dealt with a back injury, was the first he’s played since 2012 in which Scandrick did not intercept a pass. He was released by Dallas Saturday.

In addition to last season, Scandrick has been placed on Injured Reserve in 2012 and ’15. In ’15, he missed the entire season with a torn ACL and MCL.

With exception of 2015, Scandrick has played in at least 11 games in every year of his NFL career. He played collegiately at Boise State, where he started 38 of the 39 games in which he played and recorded 152 career tackles, 3.5 sacks and five forced fumbles.

Scandrick attended Los Alamitos (Calif.) H.S., where he was a first-team All-Sunset League selection. He was born Feb. 10, 1987.
