Worley announced the move on his Instagram account, joking that his GPS made him get lost on his journey from Oakland to Vegas.
On Tuesday’s listing of daily transactions, the NFL states the Raiders signed Worley off of Buffalo’s practice squad after Worley terminated his contract with the Bills.
Needing cornerback help, Buffalo signed Worley on Nov. 7, a few days after he was released by the Dallas Cowboys. Worley was on the field for 15 defensive snaps and five special teams snaps during his time with the Bills, all in the Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
With Dallas, Worley had seen the field for 246 snaps, allowing ten of the 12 passes thrown his way to be completed. He finished with 14 tackles in seven games (four starts) in 2020 for the Cowboys.
For his NFL career, Worley has played for the Raiders (two seasons), Cowboys, and Carolina Panthers (two seasons), amassing five interceptions with 35 passes defensed in 63 career games.
Worley, 25, was selected by the Panthers in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft (No. 77 overall) out of West Virginia. He played for current Bills head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane when McDermott was Carolina’s defensive coordinator and Beane was serving in a front office role.
