Eagles release cornerback Worley after Sunday morning arrest

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.

Fortunato Perri, Worley's attorney, has not responded to calls from PennLive, but he spoke with ABC6 Action News on Sunday.

He was traded to Philadelphia from the Carolina Panthers for wide receiver Torrey Smith.

According to multiple reports, Worley resisted arrest and police had to administer a taser to detain him. "We're going to look at it and hopefully resolve it favorably enough so that he can maintain his career".

On Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department announced Worley, 23, a North Philly native who attended William Penn Charter School and now resides in Swedesboro NJ, would be charged with DUI, violation of the uniform firearms act and disorderly conduct. Philadelphia won't have any cap penalties for releasing Worley. A gun was also reportedly found at the scene.

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 made a decision to send a clear message to its roster of players by coming down hard on 23 year old Daryl Worley.

Worley was only with the team for a little more than a month. "I have a great support system in place and can go to them for whatever I could ask for".
