Many NFL players have spoken out against the structure of the league's contracts and called for fully guaranteed salaries like they have in the National Basketball Association and MLB, but Orlando Scandrick doesn't have much to complain about.

Earlier this offseason, the Washington Redskins pounced on veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick after he was released by the division rival Dallas Cowboys. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo first reported the news. His release indicates the team likes its collection of young corners, including Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau, who are expected to slide in beside Norman. "No one could have predicted (the play) of Texada or Danny Johnson".

That $1 million signing bonus, though, was the only guaranteed money in the deal, and after today, it's the only money Scandrick will get from Washington. And now, he'll have the chance to join a team in need of another veteran cornerback, of which there are still plenty around the league. He hasn't played a full 16-game slate since 2013. Scandrick, however, comes with injury risk.
