Former Mountaineer Daryl Worley Signs with Dallas Cowboys



Daryl Worley

Former West Virginia cornerback Daryl Worley announced his offseason signing with the Dallas Cowboys via social media Tuesday night.

According to Dallas Cowboys writer Clarence Hill Jr., Worley’s deal is for one year.

The Philadelphia native was drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers after playing his collegiate ball with the Mountaineers.

In the 2014 and 2015 seasons, Worley played in 23 games at cornerback in the old gold and blue. WVU fans often heard Worley’s name as he totaled 101 tackles in those two seasons, including 90 solo tackles.

After two seasons with the Panthers, he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles following their Super Bowl victory.

His stint with the Eagles was short after being cut by the team due to some legal troubles. Only a week later, Worley landed a contract with the Oakland Raiders, missing the first four games due to a suspension from the NFL.

For the remainder of the 2018 season, Worley stepped into a starting role for the Raiders. He then signed a one year contract in 2019, starting in every game he played. Statistics show he started 49 of 56 games with his two previous teams.
