Report: Orlando Scandrick requests release from Dallas

Courtesy of USA Today: Orlando Scandrick is playing the best ball of his career.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has reportedly requested his release, according to multiple NFL insiders. ESPN’s Todd Archer first reported on this.

The Cowboys originally selected Scandrick in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Boise State. In his nine-year NFL career, he’s started 69 games and appeared in 125, tallying eight interceptions, 64 pass break-ups, seven forced fumbles and one defensive touchdown.

Though he’s up there in age, at 31, Scandrick should receive plenty of interest on the open market as teams bolster their secondaries.
