Daryl Worley, released by Eagles, faces charges including DUI, weapons violations

Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was arrested Sunday morning after allegedly becoming combative with police who found him passed out in a vehicle that was blocking traffic, officials said. Officers used a taser on Worley, who grew up in North Philadelphia, the site reported.

Worley, 23, was acquired by the Eagles in a trade with Carolina Panthers for receiver Torrey Smith at the start of National Football League free agency last month. He was set to make $670,000 this season.

Worley was arrested and tased after being combative with police early on Sunday morning near the Eagles' NovaCare Complex facility. A gun was allegedly found in Worley's auto.




Police said Worley, 23, a North Philadelphia native with a listed address in Swedesboro, N.J., was found passed out in a auto near Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, outside the team's practice facility, around 6 a.m. Sunday. Carolina received wide receiver Torrey Smith in the deal.

Yikes. If indeed all of those charges are legitimate, releasing Worley was an easy decision for the Eagles, considering he was projected as little more than a potential role player heading into the 2018 season. He avoided a six-month jail sentence, instead serving community service. "I have a great support system in place and can go to them for whatever I could ask for".

Bennett turned himself into Houston police on March 26 and was released on $10,000 bond.
