Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick wants to be named to a Pro Bowl at the end of the 2014 season, and he has an idea of how he’ll get there--in a word, interceptions.
Scandrick told reporters this week that he’s spent much of the offseason working on the mechanics of receiving the ball.
“Just focusing on catching the ball and looking the ball in,” Scandrick said, per the Dallas Morning News. “When you catch it you got to see it into the pocket. And those were some of my issues last year, I was catching the ball and turning my head.”
Scandrick recorded career-highs in interceptions with two and passes defensed with 12, but believes he still is a way off from meeting his true potential.
“In order to make the Pro Bowl, I got to go and get the ball,” Scandrick said. “You can go out and make all the percentage pass yards against, if you don’t intercept the ball you’re not going to be in Hawaii. You got to make game-changing plays and I know I have the ability to. I’m really starting to take strides and I have to take strides this year, too.”
