"I think what you want on your football team are competitive guys," Cowboys coach Jason Garret said, per ESPN. “You want guys to embrace challenges. Covering Wes Welker is one of the great challenges for a DB or inside nickel back in the NFL. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. He is an unbelievable target for a quarterback who consistently gets himself open. He is quarterback-friendly.

Scandrick is looking forward to the rematch with Welker.
"It’s going to be a great challenge for me," Scandrick said. "I think I competed and battled the whole way that game. I look forward to these kinds of games and these kinds of challenges."
