Cornerback Daryl Worley Signing with the Dallas Cowboys

The player acquisition game never rests. Even after the just had arguably their best draft since 2016, they dove right back into the free-agent pool, and it looks as though they've added another to an already deep group heading into 2020.

As the Dallas Cowboys continue to look for ways to improve their , it appears they've signed former and Oakland (now Las Vegas) Raiders Cornerback . At least that's what Daryl Worley is telling us.


In his four-year career, he's recorded five interceptions, two , and 34 pass deflections. In 2019, Worley allowed a of 99.1, which ranked 51st in the among cornerbacks who played at least 326 snaps per . He was 22nd in the league in coverage snaps per reception at 12.5 snaps per reception. That was tied with Cornerback and better than Tennessee's Adoree Jackson, New Orleans' , and Buffalo's Tre'Davious White.

Per Marcus Mosher, who covers the Dallas Cowboys for the Locked on Cowboys and the for the Raiders Wire on , Daryl Worley is a press-man cornerback. This seems to fall in line with what the Dallas Cowboys did over the weekend in the NFL Draft by selecting Alabama's and Tulsa's Reggie Robinson II.

With eight cornerbacks who could make the Cowboys 55-man roster out of , the Dallas Cowboys have so much depth that someone might need to move to make room for the six or seven corners they take into the .

Daryl Worley is a solid veteran presence that will push the guys on the and the rookies for snaps. He may just force one established veteran to find a new position. The Cowboys continue to invest in cornerbacks that fit a type. And in less than a week, they've spent considerable resources on that type. Big, strong, press capable cornerbacks that can create turnovers.
