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 sacks, and 34 pass deflections. In 2019, Worley allowed a passer rating of 99.1, which ranked 51st in the NFL among cornerbacks who played at least 326 snaps per Pro . 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 .

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

    Worley, 25, was the 77th overall pick of the by the Carolina Panthers and played two years before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for Torrey Smith. He never played a snap for the Eagles. He most recently played for the , where he started 15 games in 2019 and nine games in 2018 after serving a four-game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

    In April of 2018, Worley was arrested for driving under the influence and weapons and disorderly conduct charges and was released not long after. Worley served a four-game suspension for that .

    Now the Dallas Cowboys boast a cornerback group of:

    Over the weekend, Dallas Cowboys mentioned that the Cowboys had a couple of cornerbacks who could move to safety. 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 regular season.

    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.

    Can’t wait to see what the roster looks like on the field…I wonder what will become of OTAs?

    Frank Orick

    WTF we signed a guy who Gave up a 99.6 passer rating last year,why waste the few fucking millions on losers,and go e Eric Berry a shout,the man is a beast,ballhawk,leader…and probably would sign for a few million dollars over 2 yrs,THE MAN WANTS A RING,and if he is healthy and all pro caliber starter……They had a great draft but make moves I don’t comprehend,horrible players do not help win super bowls…….

    Timothy Hargrave

    I would love Eric Berry but why do you think he would be anything like he was 2 or 3yrs ago and then he didn’t even play last year and why hasn’t anybody else sign him. So lets give Mike and his staff a chance and pray they do better then Jason and his staff.


    DUH!!! If Berry is healthy, get a clue fool


    It’s Atleast makes for good camp competition.
    I think chido needs to move to safety. I said it last year. Put everything in front of him. He just can’t seem to locate the ball as a CB. good coverage just can’t find the ball. I think it could be the opposite effect of moving Byron to CB from safety.
    I think even Lewis could be a ball hawk safety but he’s too valuable as a CB. esp off the edge blitzing when he’s playing slot corner.

    Clifford Legette

    Eric berry would be a better fit for cowboys.If he is healthy and ready . He’s a better coverage corner.

    Big Mike

    I like the direction of the defense. I hated seeing our corners playing 8-10 yards back on a 3rd and 3. I say press up and take your chances. Chido to safety might be a good move because he is fast. Speed=range at safety. Only question is would he be better than Woods?

    Eric Blake

    This signing was about toughness. He’s a press corner and a pretty decent one. He can help the team. I don’t doubt anything the BOYS have done so far. Far cry better than past drafts. The narrative has changed. Stop doubting the moves and get with the program. The Dallas Cowboys will be COWBALLIN all year long, all the way to the top

    Eric Blake

    We have some pretty good DBs to start. We brought Eric Berry in twice to check him out and we didn’t get a deal done. Either he was not as healthy as people thought or he priced himself out of the market. Another if he was so ready to play , how come no other team signed him. I LOVE Eric Berry and would love for us to sign him. If it was meant to be it will be. We have a nice DB group going on right now. We needed to upgrade our defensive line and that happened in free agency and the draft. Be thankful and quit doubting. The Loser mentality left when all the subtraction took place( coaches and players).Trust the process
