The Eagles acquired cornerback Daryl Worley in a trade last month with the Carolina Panthers.
They cut him yesterday.
That’s because Worley, a Penn Charter and West Virginia grad, was arrested yesterday at 6 a.m. and allegedly was being combative with Philly police, multiple law enforcement sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
The Eagles confirmed Worley’s arrest prior to his release, saying in a statement, “We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley’s arrest this morning.”
Rapoport reported that Worley was passed out inside a vehicle blocking an intersection in South Philly. Law enforcement administered a taser on Worley and recovered a gun at the scene.
Worley had not played a snap for the Eagles. The former Carolina Panthers cornerback was traded for receiver Torrey Smith.
The third-year corner started 25 of 31 games played in Carolina, recording 150 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks.
