Earlier this week the Eagles released cornerback Orlando Scandrick for the second time this season.
The former corner spent no time airing out the Eagles dirty laundry while a guest on FS1’s Undisputed on Friday, taking shots at everyone from team caption Malcolm Jenkins to general manager Howie Roseman:
Here’s the clip(s):
“Let’s just say, where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” Scandrick said on FS1 when asked about the rumblings of locker room turmoil. “That locker room is different. I’d tell guys when I came there that I felt like they were still living off that Super Bowl high. It’s over. They’re living in the past.”
Scandrick felt like he was being scapegoated and claims the Eagles problems are much bigger than him. He was also asked about the state of the defense and indirectly referenced Malcolm Jenkins, a team caption, as one of the problems:
“I think Rasul Douglas — he’s a good friend of mine — I think he took some unwanted heat for some blown coverages on some other people’s selfish play. And we don’t even have to say names. They know who they are,” said Scandrick, referencing the big plays the Eagles gave up to Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs in a 38-20 loss the week before.
“I think when you wear a ‘C’ on your jersey, it’s your job to bring guys along. It’s your job. Sometimes you need to take the hard down, you need to take the hard job and you need to bring the thing together. I don’t know if that’s the case.
“You look at everything that happened. You hold out for a contract. You come in. You’re not really making any plays, like splash plays. Then you go down to Minnesota and you’re supposed to be in the half of the field and you end up playing a crosser? That’s not a rookie we’re talking about. It’s a two-time Super Bowl champ.”
The comments didn’t sit well with Malcolm Jenkins, who responded when he heard about Scandrick’s remarks:
The Eagles Twitter account took it upon themselves to also indirectly respond to Scandrick with this:
The clip the Eagles posted via their Twitter account shows Scandrick complementing Jenkins on the sidelines after a tackle during the game against the Vikings.
It totally contradicts what Scandrick was saying about Jenkins on Fox Sports 1.
Either way, it looks like Scandrick’s tenure with the Eagles is over and it doesn’t seem like there will be a part 3.
