On Thursday, TMZ Sports passed along comments from the cornerback, who's under contract through the 2019 campaign. Releasing him this offseason would leave $3.9 million in dead cap space, per Spotrac.
"I just wanna play football," Scandrick said.
Last month, the 30-year-old Boise State product indicated he's not interested in taking on a greatly reduced role just to remain in Dallas.
"I'm not at the point of my career where I'm willing to just be an inactive guy or a guy that's not a part of what's going on and can't help the team win," Scandrick told reporters. "I just want to play somewhere I can finish things out the right way."

The Cowboys selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 draft, and he's proceeded to spend all 10 of his professional seasons with the team.
Scandrick tallied 38 combined tackles, three passes defended and no interceptions across 11 appearances this season. He was placed on injured reserve before Week 17 due to a back injury.
Pro Football Focus graded him as the league's No. 112 corner in 2017.
Scandrick would carry cap hits of $5.3 million in 2018 and $5.6 million in 2019 if he's retained by the Cowboys for the duration of his contract.
