It looks like we'll have another intriguing storyline in the NFC East this season.


After the Dallas Cowboys designated longtime veteran corner Orlando Scandrick as a post-June 1 release, it didn't take long for Washington to come in and scoop him up. Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the 31-year-old will be joining the Redskins on a two-year deal.

Though the Cowboys saved $3 million toward cap space with the move, it has to sting seeing their 2008 fifth-round pick end up with an NFC East rival.

Scandrick will join a Redskins secondary that was beat up for most of last season, losing star corner Josh Norman for half the season due to injury and Bashaud Breeland struggling as his replacement. 


Though Breeland still remains with the team after failing a physical in light of the Carolina Panthers trying to acquire him via free agency, it looks like the Redskins are still trying to solidify their secondary with some veteran presence and depth.


In nine years with the Cowboys, Scandrick has 399 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 64 passes defended and eight interceptions.
