Redskins sign CB Orlando Scandrick to a two-year deal

The Washington Redskins are hosting three free agents today.  One of the them is signed.  The Redskins reached agreement with former Dallas Cowboy CB Orlando Scandrick.  The deal is reportedly a two-year deal worth a maximum of $10 million.

Scandrick, who is 31 years old, started in all 11 games he appeared in last season.  He was later sidelined with a back injury near the end of the season.  Scandrick spent all nine NFL seasons with Dallas.  In 125 career games, Scandrick recorded 353 tackles, 8 interceptions, 7 forced fumbles, and 64 pass deflections.  Scandrick will provide veteran depth and could serve a slot role behind Josh Norman and Quinton Dunbar.  The signing of Scandrick may also have ended the pursuit of another NFC East veteran, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

DT Jonathan Hankins and LB Pernell McPhee are also visiting the Redskins.  Most Redskins fans are anxiously awaiting news on Hankins visit.  The 24 year-old defensive tackle was released by the Colts one year into a three-year deal due to a system switch back to a 4-3 defense.  The Redskins have been in need of a big man in the middle to help stuff the run and Hankins would be a perfect fit.  His potential signing could also alter day one draft strategy for the Redskins.
