 Even though the draft is over, the Dallas Cowboys continue to churn that roster - as the great Bill Parcells used to say. The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with veteran cornerback Daryl Worley, who last played with the then-Oakland and now-Las Vegas Raiders. The Cowboys spent two draft picks in April's NFL Draft on cornerbacks - the first one on Alabama's Trevon Diggs in the second round and the second on Tulsa's Reggie Robinson II in the fourth round. Worley's free agent deal is a one year contract. According to the AP, the 25-year-old Worley has five interceptions and 243 tackles in 56 NFL games. He was a third round pick of the Carolina Panthers in the 2016 NFL Draft out of West Virginia.
