With free agency set to begin Wednesday, cornerback Orlando Scandrick has requested his release from the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.
At the end of last season, Scandrick thought his time with the Cowboys was coming to an end; the team was using rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis at outside cornerback and safety Xavier Woods in the slot as Scandrick dealt with a back injury. The Cowboys also intend to move Byron Jones back to cornerback in 2018 after he started the past two seasons at safety.
Khalil Mack Authentic Jersey The contract, according to reports, is really a one-year, $9 million deal with incentives. If Sherman makes the Pro Bowl in 2018, the Niners will pay him $3 million and trigger $16 million in guarantees over the next two seasons. General manager John Lynch & Co. would be assuming some risk by paying Sherman through his age-32 campaign, but the structure of the deal allows the Niners to stay out of danger if Sherman doesn’t return to form. It’s a fair deal for both sides, and that first Seahawks-49ers game can’t get here soon enough.
Another former University of Washington star defender goes Martin Brodeur Youth jersey on the move this offseason, but unlike Marcus Peters, Shelton hadn’t quite hit the heights his prior team had hoped. Cleveland’s 2015 first-round pick was drafted with the idea of being a nose tackle in Mike Pettine’s 3-4 alignment. But after spending two years in that 3-4 under Pettine and replacement Ray Horton, the Browns moved to a 4-3 under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams last season.
News of the move came just before the opening of the NFL’s legal tampering period, which would have made McDougald eligible to negotiate with other teams. The signing comes days after the team released star cornerback Richard Sherman, who signed with the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
The Seahawks signed McDougald to a one-year, $1.8 million deal in free agency last offseason, adding depth and experience at safety while providing Seattle with the ability to use a third safety (instead of a third cornerback) in some big nickel packages.
McDougald played sparingly in that role during the first half of the season, but he ended up making 75 tackles over nine starts — two in place of Earl Thomas at free safety and then the final seven at strong safety after Kam Chancellor suffered a season-ending neck injury.
