Orlando Scandrick gets contract extension

December, 13, 2013
IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick signed a two-year contract extension on Friday that guarantees him $9 million, according to multiple sources. Scandrick signed a six-year, $28.2 million deal in 2011, but this new extension will make him a Cowboy until 2018.

The Cowboys guaranteed Scandrick's salary for the next three seasons.

On the season, Scandrick is tied for the team lead with 14 pass breakups and is third with two interceptions. Scandrick has taken over the starting cornerback position from Morris Claiborne and has been one of the more productive defensive backs on the team.
