Professional career
The Carolina Panthers selecting Worley at the 2016 NFL Draft

Carolina Panthers
Worley was selected by the Carolina Panthers in the third round (77th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.[7] On May 10, 2016, the Carolina Panthers signed Worley to a four-year, $3.23 million contract that included a signing bonus of $783,684.[8]

Worley with the Panthers in 2016
He opened the 2016 NFL season as third on the cornerback depth chart, behind veteran Bené Benwikere and fellow rookie James Bradberry. After Julio Jones had 300 receiving yards over the Carolina Panthers in Week 4 of the NFL season, primarily against Benwikere and Worley, Benwikere was released.[9] This made Bradberry the number one starting cornerback, Worley the number two, and fellow rookie Zack Sanchez the number three.[10] Worley steadily improved throughout the year and finished the season ranked as the twelfth best cornerback against the run by respected analytical site Pro Football Focus.[11]
In 2017, he appeared in 15 games with 14 starts at right cornerback. He was declared inactive in the fourth game against the New England Patriots. He collected 64 tackles (4 for loss), 2 interceptions, 10 passes defensed, one sack and one quarterback hit.

Philadelphia Eagles
On March 9, 2018, the Carolina Panthers agreed to trade Worley to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for wide receiver Torrey Smith.[12] The deal became official on March 14, 2018.[13]
On April 15, 2018, the Philadelphia Police Department arrested Worley for driving under the influence, disorderly conduct, and violation of the uniform firearms act. Worley was found by police passed out in his vehicle while blocking a highway that was near a team facility. It was reported the arrest was at 6AM and police were required to use a taser on Worley after he became combative.[14] On April 16, 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles officially released Worley due to his arrest.[15][16]

Oakland Raiders
On April 23, 2018, the Oakland Raiders signed Worley to a one-year, $630,000 contract at the league minimum.[17] He was suspended the first four games of 2018 for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse and the Personal Conduct Policy.[18] In Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks, Worley made 5 tackles and intercepted quarterback Russell Wilson. He was placed on injured reserve on December 24, 2018.[19] He finished the season playing in 10 games with nine starts, recording 33 tackles, seven passes defensed and one interception.Worley (#20, right) participating in a joint practice with the Los Angeles Rams in 2019.

He was also used at the safety position.[23] In the third game against the Seahawks, the Cowboys were forced to start him at left cornerback opposite Diggs, after Chidobe Awuzie was placed on the injured reserve with a hamstring injury, joining Brown who was already on injured reserve with a rib injury. He struggled in his 4 straight starts and was often targeted in coverage by the opposing teams. In the sixth game against the Arizona Cardinals, he was benched after giving up an 80-yard touchdown reception to wide receiver Christian Kirk, while being in zone coverage. His defensive snaps were limited the rest of the way, until being released on October 28, 2020, as part of a roster purge that included free agency acquisitions Dontari Poe and Everson Griffen.[24] He posted 13 tackles and one pass defensed in 7 appearances with 4 starts.
