Dez Bryant is campaigning hard to try to end up in his preferred landing spot in free agency.
Less than 24 hours after the Giants released wideout Brandon Marshall, Bryant posted a video on Instragram of himself working out with the team’s No. 1 receiver: Odell Beckham Jr.
Since being cut by the Cowboys, the veteran wideout has expressed his feelings on wanting to stay in the NFC East so he could have the chance to face his former team twice a year.
“The Giants,” Bryant said when asked Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas about potential landing spots, “got a helluva defense, they’re going to pay OBJ [Odell Beckham Jr.], so coming back. Playing with him, Sterling [Shepard] … the tight end [Evan Engram], [QB Eli] Manning? Crazy. … They draft [Penn State running back Saquon Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick]? That’d be crazy!”
With Marshall gone now, the Giants have room at wide receiver behind Beckham and Sterling Shepard. Looks like Bryant is one step closer to fulfilling his wish.
Orlando Scandrick spent the past decade clashing on-field with the Washington Redskins. Now he’s joining them.
The ‘Skins on Monday landed the former Dallas Cowboys cornerback with a two-year pact worth up to $10 million, a source told NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo. The team later made the move official.
Scandrick joins Washington just two days after the Cowboys granted his requested release following nine seasons in Dallas.
The 31-year-old Scandrick started 11 games last autumn before a back injury put him on the shelf. He finished as the 106th-ranked player at his position, but Scandrick brings game-day experience to a group led by Josh Norman ahead of Quinton Dunbar, Fabian Moreau and Joshua Holsey.
Scandrick’s addition makes plenty of sense after the Redskins traded away slot man Kendall Fuller to the Chiefs before waving farewell to free-agent cover man Bashaud Breeland.
As for the Cowboys, the team saves approximately $1.4 million against the salary cap by moving on from Scandrick, their fifth-round pick from the 2008 NFL Draft.
