The 31-year-old spent his first nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, but appeared in just 11 games with them last season. He appeared in all 16 games in each of his first three seasons with Dallas, but has only done so once in the past six seasons.
The move does make sense for the Chiefs, who lost five of their top six cornerbacks in the off-season, including Marcus Peters. They have also added the likes of Kendall Fuller in a separate deal with Washington, as well as David Amerson in free agency.
The only familiar name that is returning from last season on the Chiefs' roster is Steve Nelson. Although, Nelson left Friday's game against the Atlanta Falcons with a concussion. They will get a veteran in Scandrick, who adds much-needed experience back there. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said that his team parting ways with Scandrick had nothing to do with his play, but due to the emergence of their young corners. So, it was a numbers game there, but the Chiefs have fit him in to their numbers for now.
