Source: Cowboys Orlando Scandrick Gets New Deal

No issues now with the Cowboys best cornerback.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Morning News reports that the Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have agreed to a new deal. Scandrick had been absent from voluntary workouts at Valley Ranch for much of the offseason, only showing up last week. This was termed a holdout, although the workouts were voluntary; Scandrick still got his message across. He was woefully underpaid.

As has been reported before, Scandrick's pay was far behind Brandon Carr's and Morris Claiborne's, and would have probably been similar to first-round pick Byron Jones in 2015. Even reserve and seldom used running back Lance Dunbar would have been making similar to Scandrick in 2015. The Cowboys had to rectify that, Scandrick has proven to be one of their better defenders and has been consistent for a long time.

We don't have details on the agreement yet, but it's good news that the Cowboys and Scandrick will be on the same page.
