Eagles Release Cornerback Daryl Worley After His Arrest

The Philadelphia Eagles have chose to release cornerback Daryl Worley shortly after his arrest near the team's facility on Sunday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

On Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department announced Worley, 23, a North Philly native who attended William Penn Charter School and now resides in Swedesboro NJ, would be charged with DUI, violation of the uniform firearms act and disorderly conduct. Worley, who would have made $670,000 this season, faces a May 1 preliminary hearing.

The Eagles cut Worley on Sunday after confirming his arrest. On questioning, the police allege that Worley had a gun in his vehicle and wasn't willing to be cooperative with the police.

According to Les Bowen of Philly.com, police said Worley is facing several charges including driving while under the influence, disorderly conduct and a violation of the uniform firearms act.

Worley was traded to the Eagles by the Panthers in March in a deal that sent wide receiver Torrey Smith to Carolina. The Eagles began their offseason workout program at the NovaCare Complex on Monday. Worley started 25 games in his two seasons with the Panthers. A gun was also reportedly found at the scene. Defensive end Michael Bennett, who was obtained in a trade with Seattle last month, was indicted on a felony charge of injury of the elderly on March 23 after allegedly shoving a 66-year-old female paraplegic at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017.
