Timothy Worley (born September 24, 1966) is a former American football running back who played for the Georgia Bulldogs in college, and the Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL).
Early years 
College career 
Worley attended the University of Georgia in 1985. He was the team’s second leading rusher as a freshman with 627 yards and led the team in touchdowns with 10. That same year, he scored an 89-yard touchdown against No. 1 ranked Florida, finishing with 125 yards rushing and leading Georgia to a 24-3 upset.
In 1988, Worley led Georgia in rushing with 1,216 yards, which ranks seventh among Georgia running backs for a single season. He was named first-team All-American by Kodak, the Walter Camp Football Foundation, and the Football Writers Association of America. United Press International named him its SEC Offensive Player of the Year. He finished his career at Georgia with 2,038 yards, 27 touchdowns and 5.8 yards per carry (fifth all-time at Georgia).
He earned All-America honors as a junior after leading the Southeastern Conference in rushing with 1,216 yards. He was selected in the first round (7th overall) of the 1989 NFL Draft by the Steelers. He was the highest draft pick in University of Georgia history until 1993. Today, Worley is the fourth highest draft pick in University of Georgia history, and his 1989 draft class is considered one of the best in NFL history.
NFL career 
Worley showed promise in his rookie season, amassing 770 yards rushing and five touchdowns on 195 carries. His production fell off his second season, however, as he earned only 418 yards and no touchdowns. He was injured for most of the 1991 NFL season and was suspended the following year from the NFL due to missing two mandatory drug tests. He also had a problem holding onto the ball; he had 16 fumbles during his three-plus years in Pittsburgh.
The Steelers traded Worley to the Bears in 1993 for a fifth-round draft pick. The trade, intended to enhance the Bears' rushing attack with Neal Anderson and to resurrect Worley's career, failed on both fronts. Failure to produce on the field, and a series of arrests off the field, plagued Worley. After appearing in only five games during the 1994 NFL season, the Bears released him, and Worley chose to retire from the NFL.
Post NFL 
On October 23, 2007, Worley was inducted into the Georgia-Florida Hall of Fame, which recognizes the careers and outstanding performances that have occurred during the decades-long rivalry.
Worley's troubles with the law resurfaced on April 13, 2008, as he was arrested for speeding and failure to maintain the lane in Smyrna, Georgia. It is commonly believed that Worley was arrested for driving under the influence, however he was never charged with that offense nor with a DUI. Officers used a Taser to subdue Worley after an altercation with the arresting officer. Police held Worley in custody on outstanding warrants from Arcade in Jackson County and Social Circle in Walton County.  Worley now credits that police officer with "saving his life," and refers to the incident as the defining moment prompting his re-commitment to his faith and fueling his entrepreneurial spirit. 
Personal and Professional life 
Worley co-founded a for-profit business—Worley Global Enterprises—with his wife, Dee. He leads the motivational speaking and mentoring divisions, and his wife leads the business consulting division.
