Philadelphia Eagles release cornerback Daryl Worley amidst arrest

Daryl Worley’s tenure with the Philadelphia Eagles was an incredibly short one.

According to a report from NFL Network, Worley was arrested by police at the corner of Broad and Patterson when he became combative with Philadelphia police, and administrated a taser on him.

The Philadelphia Eagles have released Worley, per 247Sports’ Alan Bell.

A gun was recovered on the scene. Worley was found inside a vehicle passed out blocking a highway when 911 was called to investigate. The Eagles released a statement to the media on Worley stating “We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley’s arrest this morning.”

This isn’t the first time Worley had a run-in with the law. During his days at West Virginia, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault and received probation with no jail time. Worley served served a two-game suspension and was reinstated by West Virginia soon after.

Worley was acquired by the Eagles in exchange for Torrey Smith in March. He carries a cap hit of $670,000 for 2018, the third-year of his rookie deal. The Eagles owe no money toward the cap if they would release him.


The 6-1, 205-pound Worley was a three-star recruit and two-time Inter-Ac First Team selection back in his days at Penn Charter. Worley was also reunited with West Virginia teammate Rasul Douglas, who he played with in 2015.

A third-round pick of the Panthers in 2016, Worley has 150 tackles, 19 pass deflections, and three interceptions in 31 games (25 starts). Worley graded at 74.1 by Pro Football Focus in his rookie season and 58.9 last year.
