    Cowboys hopeful to get deal done with Orlando Scandrick

    Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is hoping a deal will get done with disgruntled cornerback Orlando Scandrick, according to ESPN. Scandrick is pushing for a new deal after outperforming both Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in 2014. He is scheduled to make $3 million per year from 2016-18. "We would like to get something satisfactorily worked out with him," Jones said. "… Hopefully we can get something worked out that can be in the best interest of the Cowboys and also accommodate what he needs to do. We didn't get anything done, but we certainly are talking about it." Scandrick totaled 55 tackles with two interceptions in 14 games last season. "I don't want to speculate our business," executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "I don't like to do anything like that. We did talk about that. He's under contract and he should be in here working with his teammates. He's a competitor and I think the world of Orlando. I also understand any player in terms of what their thoughts are, respect them, but at the same time he's under contract to the Dallas Cowboys and in my opinion he should be out there working with us."
