Orlando Scandrick sounded like a player who doesn’t expect to be with the Dallas Cowboys in 2018. Scandrick has two years left on his contract, but is bracing for the possibility of having a new team this off-season. “I’m prepared for whatever,” Scandrick said. “I’m still going to play football. I’m still a good football player when I’m healthy. We’ll see what happens.” Scandrick has spent his entire career with the Cowboys since joining the team as a 2008 fifth-round pick out of Boise State. Scandrick started all 11 games he played this season, although he’ll miss the final four games with fractured bones in his back. Scandrick has seen the Cowboys’ young secondary grow without him in the lineup. He sees bright futures for rookie corners Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis and Xavier Woods, as well as second-year player Anthony Brown. With the influx of youth, Scandrick simply doesn’t see much playing time for himself going forward. And he made it clear that he isn’t interested in accepting a diminished role.
