The Buffalo Bills signed former Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers cornerback Daryl Worley to their practice squad today. He was released by the Cowboys late last week. To make room on the practice squad they released CB Lafayette Pitts.
Worley played for current Bills head coach Sean McDermott when he was the Panthers’ DC in 2017 and Bills’ general manager Brandon Beane was part of the front office that drafted him in the third round. He brings a wealth of starting experience and could play either boundary cornerback or as a larger slot cornerback.
The Bills have struggled with injuries at cornerback this year with Josh Norman missing most of the season recovering from a pulled hamstring, Tre’Davious White missing time due to a back issue, Cam Lewis breaking his wrist, and Levi Wallace sitting out multiple games. Slot cornerback Taron Johnson has also played poorly this year.
This move could shore up a position of need for Buffalo and help Worley get back on his feet in a system in which he has played well. The NFL’s COVID-19 protocols included several spots for veterans on team practice squads.
