Reasons Philadelphia Eagles releasing Daryl Worley was the right move

Share

Court records show authorities charged Worley with his first DUI offense, firearms not to be carried without a license, carrying firearms in public in Philadelphia, possession of an instrument of crime with intent to employ it, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct - engaging in fighting. Worley, who would have made $670,000 this season, faces a May 1 preliminary hearing.

When officers responded, they reportedly found Worley passed out in his auto behind the wheel outside the Eagles' NovaCare Complex. Worley was arrested at 6 AM EST on Sunday Morning after he was found passed out in the vehicle by Philly police.

Worley was allegedly "combative" with officers, who recovered a gun from the scene. The Eagles began their offseason workout program at the NovaCare Complex on Monday.

He went on to play at West Virginia University, where he was teammates with Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas, wide receiver Shelton Gibson and cornerback Rasul Douglas.

The 23-year-old Philly native had spent the first two seasons of his career in Carolina, after being selected him in the third round of the 2016 National Football League draft out of West Virginia.

More details have emerged about Worley's arrest on Sunday that led to the Eagles ultimately deciding to move on from a player they had just acquired last month in a trade with the Carolina Panthers.

Bennett turned himself into Houston police on March 26 and was released on $10,000 bond.
