Ex-Philadelphia Eagles player Daryl Worley charged after police tased, arrested him

On Sunday morning, near the Philadelphia Eagles facility, police found Worley passed out in a vehicle.

"He's obviously very disappointed that he's involved in a situation", Worley's attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., told Channel 6 Sunday night.

A Philadelphia native, Worley was traded back to his hometown Eagles for veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith, and he was expected to compete for a starting cornerback position. "We're going to look at it and hopefully resolve it favorably enough so that he can maintain his career".

The Eagles announced that they released Worley later Sunday. The 23-year-old was allegedly in possession of a firearm when police found him passed out at the wheel of his vehicle. 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.

Eagles players report for the start of offseason workouts on Monday. So far there is no information from the authorities if Worley has been charged and what will be his penalty.

Worley was only with the team for a little more than a month.

Worley, 23-years old, was entering his third season in the National Football League after being selected in the third round (No. 77 overall) by Carolina.

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.
