The Eagles signed veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick to a one-year contract Saturday. To make room on the roster, the Eagles waived defensive tackle Anthony Rush.
Scandrick spent last season in Kansas City where he suited up for 15 games (seven starts) and accumulated 44 tackles and an interception. He played 67 percent of the snaps on defense and lined up both in the slot and on the outside. Prior to signing with the Chiefs, Scandrick was with Washington but was released during in Training Camp.
The 5-10, 196-pound Scandrick spent his first 10 seasons in the league with the Dallas Cowboys. A fifth-round pick out of Boise State, Scandrick has amassed 435 tackles, 27 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and nine interceptions in 140 career regular-season games (76 starts).
Only four players on the roster have appeared in more career games than Scandrick. There are now 11 cornerbacks on the roster after the additions of Scandrick and Alex Brown over the past two days.
