Eagles Release Cornerback Daryl Worley After His Arrest

Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley faces a litany of charges after being arrested by Philadelphia police and released by the team on Sunday.

Fortunato Perri, Worley's attorney, has not responded to calls from PennLive, but he spoke with ABC6 Action News on Sunday.

Worley recently joined the reigning Super Bowl champions when he was traded from the Carolina Panthers in exchange for wide receiver Torrey Smith.




Worley had started for the Carolina Panthers in 25 out of 31 games played in the state and recorded 150 tackles, 2 sacks and 3 interceptions. He is alleged to have begun fighting with officers who woke him and police used a taser to subdue him, a source close to the situation said, confirming an NFL Network report. A gun was reportedly found at the scene. So far there is no information from the authorities if Worley has been charged and what will be his penalty.

While at West Virginia, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault in 2014 after an incident at a nightclub.

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. "I have a great support system in place and can go to them for whatever I could ask for". It was just over a month ago that the Philadelphia native and Penn Charter grad was acquired via trade.
