Cowboys Agree To Terms With Veteran Free Agent CB Worley

FRISCO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Daryl Worley on a free agent deal after the team selected two cornerbacks in last week's NFL draft.

Before the team announced the move on its website Wednesday, Worley had already posted on Twitter an image of himself in a Cowboys helmet and jersey.

Worley spent the past two seasons with the Oakland Raiders after playing his first two seasons with Carolina. The 25-year-old Worley, who has five interceptions and 243 tackles in 56 NFL games, was a third-round pick by the Panthers out of West Virginia in the 2016 draft.

The Cowboys last week drafted Trevon Diggs from Alabama in the second round, and Reggie Robinson II from Tulsa in the fourth round.

Former first-round pick Byron Jones, who started 73 of his 79 games the past five seasons for the Cowboys, left in free agency and became the NFL's highest-paid cornerback. He signed a five-year deal with the Miami Dolphins worth more than $76.5 million.
