The team announced it has released DB Daryl Worley after he was arrested early Sunday morning after reportedly being found passed out inside a vehicle that was blocking a highway.
According to NBC Sports Philadelphia, Worley, 23, was arrested just outside the team’s practice facility in South Philadelphia.
Sources say that Worley was reportedly found passed out in a vehicle and 911 was called.
When he interacted with officers, Worley allegedly became combative and was tasered at the corner of Broad St. and Pattison Ave. around 6 a.m. on April 15.
A gun was also reportedly recovered from the scene.
Around 5:30 p.m., the Eagles announced Worley’s release.
The team had acquired Worley, a Philadelphia native, earlier this off season from the Carolina Panthers, in a deal for WR Torrey Smith.
He was expected to compete for a roster spot as a backup corner back or safety.
