16 April 2018

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.

Worley was said to have been combative, forcing police to tase him with a stun gun.

Sources say that Worley was reportedly found passed out in a vehicle and 911 was called.

A cornerback and Philadelphia native who flew into the Eagles' nest this offseason won't get a chance to play for his hometown team after an arrest during which he reportedly fought with police and had to be tasered. A gun was found at the scene, according to the report, which added that the incident occurred near the Eagles' team facility.

Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley has been charged with violation of the uniform firearms act, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct "and related offenses", Philadelphia police said Monday. Worley said at the time he was defending his girlfriend and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault, receiving a six-month suspended sentence.

Later Sunday, Howard Eskin of Philadelphia's WIP radio, reported the Eagles released Worley.
