Dallas Cowboys extends Orlando Scandrick contract at a value of $9.5 million

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick ended the rumors of not playing with the Dallas Cowboys this season as he agreed to terms on a contract extension.

According to Dan Hanzus of NFL.com:

The extension adds another year to Scandrick’s contract at a value of $9.5 million. He’s now under team control through 2019 for a total $20 million in salary.

Scandrick didn’t join the Cowboys on their first round of voluntary workouts, expressing his desire for a new deal. Scandrick played better than what he was paid last season. He will be paid $1.5 million in 2015 and $3 million in 2016 through 2018.

Good news for the Dallas Cowboys. Scandrick has risen into many occasions last season when he played solid defense, ending 10th out of 108 qualified cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus’ ratings.

The Cowboys made it more difficult to believe to give Scandrick a new contract when they selected cornerback Byron Jones in the first round of the NFL draft pick. Cowboys would have been looking for another way to save money.

However, the Cowboys intention to get to the Super Bowl is truly being made into action by letting Scandrick to be happy with the organization.
