Cowboys’ Orlando Scandrick Requests Release

Published

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick has requested his release, according to ESPN.com’s Todd Archer.

The Cowboys plan on trading or releasing the veteran defensive back, as the Star-Telegram’s Clarence Hill reported back in February.

“I’m prepared for whatever,” Scandrick said at the time of the report. “I’m still going to play football. I’m still a good football player when I’m healthy. We’ll see what happens. … I’m not at the point of my career where I’m willing to just be an inactive guy or a guy that’s not a part of what’s going on and can’t help the team win. I just want to play somewhere I can finish things out the right way.”

Dallas had previously targeted Kenny Vaccaro in a trad with the New Orleans Saints that did not go through.

While Dallas will save $1.4M by parting ways with Scandrick, they will eat $3.88M in dead money.

Dallas Cowboys veteran center Travis Frederick believes that he won’t be able to make it back to the field this season, but is holding out hope that he can return to the team next season, saying he feels “very good” about his chances in 2019.

Frederick was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome before the start of the season, causing numbness in both of his arms, among other various symptoms.

“I have certainly made progress, but at this point in the season, having not been able to do my football movements. … Even if I was 100 percent strength wise to be able to come back and play. … I’m still six or eight weeks out from that,” Frederick said, during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan.

Frederick is under contract with Dallas through the 2023 season.

Cowboys’ Amari Cooper Motivated to Prove Cowboys Right

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is coming off a tremendous performance in the team’s Thanksgiving victory over the Washington Redskins and is motivated to show the Cowboys that they were right in giving up a 1st round pick to acquire him from the Oakland Raiders earlier this season via trade.

“I don’t want to prove the Raiders wrong,” Cooper said, according to Mike Fisher of 247Sports. “I just want to prove the Cowboys right.”

Cooper has certainly left a positive impression on the organization thus far.

“Jack Del Rio told me before we made the trade, he said, ‘Just look at the Kansas City film a year ago,’” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, referencing the former Cowboys player and former Raiders head coach. “We just said to hell with it. We’re not going to do anything but throw him the ball. Just look at that, and that will show you what Amari is like. And so this (game) kind of reminded me a little of what (Del Rio) was trying to say.

Cooper has 22 catches for 349 yards and three touchdowns during his stint in Dallas.

The Dallas Cowboys will be getting a big boost to their offensive line as they anticipate the return of offensive tackle Tyron Smith, who is projected to return to the field for next week’s game against the New Orleans Saints, according to The Athletic’s Calvin Watkins.

Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones made the comments after Smith, who was expected to suit up for their Thanksgiving Day clash with the Washington Redskins, was not active for Thursday’s game.

Smith suffered what is being called a “stinger” during last week’s win over the Atlanta Falcons.
