The Dallas Cowboys and starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick have agreed to a five-year contract extension worth  $26.2 million, with 10 million in guaranteed money. According to the paperwork, he will receive an additional $2 million this season, and $5 million for each remaining year of his contract.

The 26 year-old defensive back is about to enter his fourth NFL lines season, and the last year of his rookie contract. When the Cowboys selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL lines Draft, they had only planned on Scandrick becoming a second-stringer at best. As a result, he has started just 9 out of a possible 48 career NFL lines games, with only a meager 2 interceptions to his name.

However, thanks to new management in Dallas, the 5’10”, 193-lbs cornerback is getting a second shot at his dream. Despite his bare credentials, the Cowboys’ new management (particularly first-year defensive coordinator Rob Ryan) certainly believes in Scandrick’s potential to dramatically improve his play this season and announce him to the rest of the league. Ryan already considers Orlando Scandrick a starter, and compares his talents to other veterans like Mike Jenkins and Terence Newman.

Scandrick showed glimpses of his ability during the Cowboys` practice Wednesday night, as he had an interception, blocked a field goal, had one sack and two pass deflections. In order to alleviate the skepticism surrounding his lavish contract, Scandrick will have to repeat performances such as these on the big stage this upcoming NFL lines season.

Nielson Notice In other Cowboys’ news, sophomore wide receiver Dez Bryant is still far from full health, still feeling lingering effects from last year’s ankle injury.

On a more positive note, linebacker Keith Brooking is back on the practice field after having been sidelined during the first week of pre-season due to a hamstring injury. Brooking will be expected to fight for a starting role with Sean Lee, who stepped up his play during the veteran’s absence.
