NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Less than twenty-four hours after claiming cornerback Alex Brown off waivers, the Philadelphia Eagles have shown interest in adding more depth to the cornerback room. Earlier today Mike Garafolo reported that the Eagles will be bringing in Orlando Scandrick for a visit.

With Jalen Mills starting out camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list and Cre’Von LeBlanc missing his second consecutive camp practice, Scandrick represents veteran depth.

*Update on LeBlanc:

The former Dallas Cowboy has ten years of experience and spent last year with the Kansas City Chiefs. At 5’10”, 196 pounds, Scandrick’s visit likely has more to to with LeBlanc than Mills, as he’s been a nickel corner most of his career. However Scandrick did spend last year on the outside and the Eagles haven’t been shy about putting smaller corners out wide in a pinch (see: Avonte Maddox).

According to PFF, last year Scandrick allowed his lowest QB Rating when targeted (81.1) since 2012. His 70.0 grade from PFF ranked 41st out of 125 qualifiers at cornerback.

Does the 32-year old Scandrick have enough left in the tank to land on the 90-man roster and make a push for a full-time gig? Time will tell, and we’ll keep you updated on the Eagles decision.
