Orlando Scandrick’s future with the Cowboys appears murky at best. Although executive vice president Stephen Jones said Tuesday the team has made no decision about the veteran cornerback, he intimated the Cowboys will try to trade Scandrick.

The Cowboys are considering moving Byron Jones from safety to corner, which would create a logjam with Jourdan Lewis, Chidobe Awuzie and Anthony Brown also at corner.

“Those are all things we take a look at,” Stephen Jones said, via David Helman of the team website. “We haven’t made that decision. We haven’t made any decision final at this point. Those are all things that go into the mix. You’d always like to trade anybody before you cut them. I’d rather get something than nothing, every time.”

The Cowboys tried to deal Scandrick to the Saints during the draft last year in return for safety Kenny Vaccaro, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Scandrick, 31, made 38 tackles, no interceptions and three pass breakups in 11 games last season before going on injured reserve.
