Eagles To Re-Sign CB Orlando Scandrick

After the Eagles saw another cornerback go down, they are bringing back Orlando Scandrick. The veteran corner agreed to terms with the Eagles, per Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (on Twitter).

The veteran slot defender was with the Eagles in camp before being jettisoned just prior to cutdown weekend. But Philadelphia entered Thursday night’s game without Ronald Darby and saw Avonte Maddox stretchered off Lambeau Field. Maddox is back with his teammates but has been diagnosed with a concussion and a neck injury. He is without a return timetable.

Scandrick worked out for the Texans shortly after his Eagles release, but the 32-year-old has been a free agent for nearly a month. Prior to his 2018 stay with the Chiefs, Scandrick spent 10 seasons with the Cowboys. He is back in an insurance-type role with the Eagles.

The longtime cover man played in 15 Chiefs games last season, finishing with a career-high 13 passes defensed. Should the Eagles retain him for multiple weeks, Scandrick will have a chance to face his former team. This season’s first Philadelphia-Dallas matchup looms in Week 7.
