Former Eagles CB Worley charged with multiple offenses

Daryl Worley was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in the wake of his arrest, and the details surrounding the incident are going to make it very hard for him to find another job.

The Eagles released Worley hours after his arrest. Worley, who would have made $670,000 this season, faces a May 1 preliminary hearing.

Worley was arrested Sunday morning after he was allegedly found passed out inside a vehicle blocking a highway, according to NFL Network.

According to multiple reports, Worley resisted arrest and police had to administer a taser to detain him.

The team acquired Worley in a trade with the Panthers last month.

The Eagles opened their offseason training program Monday.

Worley, a Philadelphia native and graduate of William Penn Charter High School, spoke at his introductory press conference on March 16 about returning home and playing for the team he grew up watching, and the responsibility that comes with that. So far there is no information from the authorities if Worley has been charged and what will be his penalty.

Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers.

The Eagles faced an embarrassment earlier in the off-season when Michael Bennett, who plays as a defensive lineman was also arrested for getting into a scuffle with a disabled officer at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas. "I have a great support system in place and can go to them for whatever I could ask for".
