Two days after being released by the Dallas Cowboys, cornerback Orlando Scandrick joined an NFC East rival.
Scandrick signed with the Washington Redskins, the team announced Monday.
Terms of the deal were not announced, but NFL.com reported that Scandrick agreed to a two-year deal with a maximum value of $10 million.
Scandrick will join a secondary that includes Josh Norman. Scandrick might fill the slot role left vacant when Kendall Fuller was traded to the Kanas City Chiefs for quarterback Alex Smith.
Scandrick requested his release before free agency started last week and the Cowboys waited until Saturday to cut him.
The Cowboys designated Scandrick as a post-June 1 release to save $3 million in salary cap space. Since he is a vested veteran after 10 seasons with Dallas, Scandrick was free to sign with any team.
The 31-year-old Scandrick played 11 games in 2017, all as a starter, but back injuries limited his playing time. The Cowboys used rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis at outside cornerback and safety Xavier Woods in the slot at the end of the season.
The Cowboys also plan to move Byron Jones back to cornerback in 2018 after he started the past two seasons at safety.
Scandrick has been a starter for the Cowboys since 2013, although he missed the 2015 season with a knee injury. He has recorded 406 tackles, 11.5 sacks and eight interceptions in 125 career contests (69 starts).
