Freed up to work on the inside by the acquisition of Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr last offseason, Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick had perhaps his best season as a pro in 2012. Now, he’s looking to build on that performance.
“It’s always been sort of mental with me,” Scandrick said earlier this week, per the Dallas Morning News. “I feel like I have great athletic ability. I am fast. I am strong. I am smart. But it’s always mental. It’s a mind thing with me. I want to take last year and build on the things that I did well and I want to improve on the things I didn’t do as well.”
Scandrick’s season was cut short by a fractured hand, suffered in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Washington Redskins. This has only added to Scandrick’s excitement for 2013, which will start with the Boise State product learning a brand new defensive system under new coordinator Monte Kiffin.
“I am really looking forward to this year,” Scandrick said. “This is going to be a very special year for us if we go out and perform to our potential.”
