Cowboys Sign CB Daryl Worley

The Cowboys have signed Daryl Worley to a one-year deal, per a club announcement. The cornerback profiles as a smart low-risk and potentially high-reward addition for 2020. Terms of the deal are not yet known, but Worley probably came at a reasonable rate.

Worley signed with the Eagles in 2018, but he was dropped after a bizarre incident in Philadelphia. Cops said they found the cornerback passed out inside of a car around 6am. When they woke him up, he was allegedly combative – ultimately, they used a taser to subdue him. Afterwards, he faced charges for firearms, driving under the influence, and disorderly conduct. The Raiders picked him up and waited as he served a four-game suspension.

All of that aside, Worley offers veteran experience on a value deal – and he’s still only 25. In this year’s draft, the Cowboys added a pair of cornerbacks in Alabama’s Trevon Diggs (second round) and Tulsa’s Reggie Robinson II (fourth round). They’ve also got Chidobe Awuzie, Anthony Brown, and Jourdan Lewis on hand, so Dallas now has a crowded CB depth chart.

In Oakland, Worley started nearly all of his 25 games across two seasons. Last year, in 15 games, he notched 58 tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery.

Before the Raiders and the offseason cup of coffee with the Birds, Worley was a 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers. He started in 25 games for Carolina and notched three interceptions.

    He’s a solid player with starting experience. He can come in and compete for starting playing time. I like the the move.

      Agreed. The Cowboys did a decent job rebuilding their secondary with a combination of young blood (Diggs, Robinson) and veteran experience (Clinton-Dix, Worley)

    Go sign a difference maker on Defense like Clowney instead of using most of your cap on offense

      I don’t know if you have watched superbowls lately but who won the last one the great offense or great defense. Your defense just needs to be average when you have a offense like the Chiefs, Cowboys, Ravens, Rams, Packers etc. What the cowboys need is Dlaw to show back up the linebackers to get us off the field on 3rd down and more, a whole lot more takeaways!!!

    Gotta love those Philly cops. They were probably thinking “Well, he doesn’t play for the Cowboys, Giants or Redskins, so we’ll let him off this time with a gentle tasering”.

    Not good at all. Torched consistently for the Raiders. At the very least, decent depth.

    Man it’s looking like the Cowboys will soon be able to play their games at the Big House.

    Tough as nails, slow as molasses. He simply cant keep up w/quickness and speed.

    good signing without much money to sign him…remember people, its not a matter of signing someone to start, its signing people to compete and push the others! therefore Rasheed Jones and Everson Griffen is on the horizon….and a vet TE to back up…
