Eagles Bring In Veteran CB Scandrick

Former Cowboy Orlando Scandrick signs with the Philadelphia Eagles

Former Cowboy Orlando Scandrick signs with the Philadelphia Eagles

And we know what the Eagles have done with some of these one-season signings - wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and cornerback Patrick Robinson and defensive end Chris Long are among the huge success stories - so it makes sense that the Eagles saw something they liked in Scandrick's workout and added him in the first week of camp.

Scandrick spent his first nine National Football League seasons in Dallas and has produced over the years with 76 passes defensed, nine interceptions and 11 1/2 sacks.

Scandrick has also appeared on TV recently as an analyst on NFL Network.

"The #Eagles are signing CB Orlando Scandrick following today's workout, source says", NFL Media's Mike Garafolo tweeted.

The Eagles are in desperate need of depth at the cornerback position.

The 32-year old had perhaps his best statistical season with the Cowboys in 2013 setting career-highs in games started (15), tackles (64) and tying his career-high in interceptions (2). Ronald Darby, the other starter, is returning from ACL surgery.

Earlier this year, Cosby was convicted and is now serving prison time in connection to another rape case. Some 50 or so women have come forward with allegations against Cosby that span three decades.

The Eagles are now without cornerbacks Cre'Von LeBlanc and Jalen Mills due to foot injuries, while Ronald Darby is still recovering from November's ACL tear in his right knee.

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick.

The 2008 fifth-round pick from Boise State played nine seasons for the Dallas Cowboys.

If Scandrick can make it stick on his third NFC East team, he will have an opportunity to face the Cowboys on October 20 and December 22.

Currently, Avonte Maddox and Sidney Jones will likely start, but Scandrick could quickly find a role in the defense.
