Scandrick is returning to form this offseason and is prepared to compete for a starting role, Jon Machota of Sports Day reports. "My time is now, and I ain't looking over my shoulder, wondering what's going to happen," Scandrick said. "I'm just going out every day and trying to get better, trying to get back to where I was. I felt like I was an ascending player when I tore my ACL and I'm going to get back to that."

Scandrick dealt with a plethora of injuries last season, sidelining him after two consecutive career years. The Cowboys made a point of adding young talent to their secondary -- drafting Chidobe Awuzie in the second round of April's draft and Jourdan Lewis in the third -- leaving some to wonder if Scandrick's time would be up in Dallas. However, the veteran has been playing outside corner and nickelback with the first-team defense through OTAs and minicamp. Look for more updates on the position battle to come throughout training camp.
