Washington Redskins Release Orlando Scandrick

Chiefs to bring in recently released CB Orlando Scandrick for a visit

The Redskins had just signed Scandrick, 31, to a two-year deal shortly after his release from the Dallas Cowboys.

As John Keim stated in his summary of the transaction, the Redskins' release of Scandrick is not a move exclusively based on Scandrick's performance; the veteran regularly took starting reps in training camp. Instead of risking adding a rookie or second-year player on the practice squad to see another team swoop in and sign them, the Redskins are confident that a collection of youth can perform better than or the same as Scandrick.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo first reported the news.

Echoing La Canfora's report that the team likes its depth on the back end, Gruden told reports on Tuesday that Scandrick's release has nothing to do with his own play, and is instead related to the strong training camps of undrafted free agents Ranthony Texada and Danny Johnson.

The decline coincided with concerns that investors are " cashing out " the digital currency to cover business expenses, Bloomberg reported .

Many NFL players have spoken out against the structure of the league's contracts and called for fully guaranteed salaries like they have in the National Basketball Association and MLB, but Orlando Scandrick doesn't have much to complain about.

Scandrick received a $1 million signing bonus in March, giving him a nice chunk of walking-away money for a summer's work.

The move indicates the Redskins have faith in young corners Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau to successfully complement veteran Josh Norman going forward.
