He looks like he will be used as a cornerback and a safety, considering he had that role with the Raiders and the Cowboys’ interest in having a corner/safety hybrid. Add his name to the list of candidates to corners possibly being switched to safety.
Looking at his stats, I am very surprised I have not heard his name. He may be a gem of a signing. All because off the field issues stirred up the pot. If that can be handled, then Worley can be a very big piece to the Cowboys defense.
In four seasons, he showed he can be a very good tackler while also being able to get his hands on the ball. Some would like him to catch the ball a little more, but I’m not worried about that for the number four corner on this list.
The former third-round pick had 88 tackles, nine passes defended, and one interception along with a sack in his rookie season. Talk about showing up with a bang.
In 2017 Worley missed one game but still kept his numbers up. Making 64 tackles while defending 10 passes and picking off two passes is a pretty good season.
In 2018, the Cowboys almost found out about Worley, but not the way they wanted to. He was signed with the Philadelphia Eagles but was released after being arrested with suspicion of driving under the influence and weapon charges.
Thankfully, he ended up signing with the Raiders and was used all over the defense. In 10 games he made 33 tackles while defending seven passes and intercepting one pass.
This past season Worley stepped up again, making 58 tackles, defending eight passes, and intercepting one pass. He also held opposing quarterbacks to a 53 percent completion percentage, albeit a 95.6 passer rating and 15.5 yards per completion.
The Cowboys have a starting-caliber player as their third/fourth cornerback. I am very excited to see how Daryl Worley plays under Mike Nolan. Seeing him constantly disrupt the passing game and bring down the ball carrier is something Cowboys fans should get used to.
