Daryl Worley is a now former Raider. The NFL Network reported on Wednesday that the cornerback is signing with the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year deal.

This departure was coming for a while and after the draft, it became obvious.

The Raiders showed no interest in retaining Worley all offseason. Then, in the draft last week, they took Ohio State’s Damon Arnette in the first round and Louisiana Tech’s Amik Robertson in the fourth round.

The Raiders are going to be very young at cornerback this year. Travyon Mullen, a second-round pick n 2019, and Arnette will likely get start.

Worley played in 25 games for the Raiders in the past two years. The Raiders signed him in 2018 a week after the Eagles cut him following an arrest stemming from an altercation with police. He served a short suspension in 2018 because of it.

Worley is the fourth Raiders’ free agent to leave this offseason. He joins safety Karl Joseph (Cleveland), defensive end Benson Mayowa (Seattle) and running back DeAndre Washington (Kansas City). Linebacker Tahir Whitehead is now in Carolina, but he was released and was not a free agent.
