Cornerback Daryl Worley is getting another chance. 

 

The troubled cornerback will sign with the Oakland Raiders his third team of just this offseason in an attempt to get his career back on track, according to ESPN.

 

Worley was cut by the Eagles, following an arrest where he ended up tased after being combative with police near Philadelphia's team facility ahead of the opening of the offseason program.

When you go back and look at what was happening, I dont think Daryl was taking the next step in our situation and set of circumstances. And we felt that giving him a chance to go somewhere else and grow would be better for him

Once a third-round pick from West Virginia, Worley started 14 games for the Panthers last season but was traded partly due to his off-field behavior.

 

The Raiders released cornerbacks, Sean Smith and David Amerson, this offseason. Worley is one of five corners (including Leon Hall, Rahsaan Melvin, Shareece Wright, and Senquez Golson) who will contend for roster spots and playing time.
