Back on September 12, 2014, the fine folks at LA Times Hot Property revealed that Orlando Scandrick of the NFL Dallas Cowboys purchased a Woodland Hills MCM in the Forest Hills area for $1,755,000 on August 26, 2014 just before the NFL season started. However, Scandrick was suspended for the first 4 games of the 2014 season due to testing positive for Molly, a performance-enhancing drug so he has plenty of time to decorate the place and hang up some pictures.
The home measures 5 Beds/3.75 Baths on 5,103 sqft on a total lot size of 0.41 acres built in 1965. The listing description states:

Prior to the Woodland Hills home, Scandrick was living in a Hollywood Hills that sold for $2.1 million on the same day he purchased his new home which was also discussed at the LA Times. It's also interesting to see someone leave the "beloved" westside area and head over to the "boring" SFV so we welcome Scandrick with open arms who was born in Torrance and attended Los Alamitos High School.
