Releasing Daryl Worley won't have big impact on Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have chose to release cornerback Daryl Worley shortly after his arrest near the team's facility on Sunday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

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

Worley was traded to the Eagles by the Panthers in March in a deal that sent wide receiver Torrey Smith to Carolina.

He was arrested and tased after becoming combative with police. "We're going to look at it and hopefully resolve it favorably enough so that he can maintain his career".

Yikes. If indeed all of those charges are legitimate, releasing Worley was an easy decision for the Eagles, considering he was projected as little more than a potential role player heading into the 2018 season.

Daryl Worley is no longer a member of the Eagles organization after he was released from the organization just as the team's off-season work-out program was set to begin on Monday.

Worley grew up in North Philadelphia on Broad Street and is a graduate of Penn Charter School, which is also Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's alma mater. The Carolina Panthers took Worley in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and he started 25 games for the Panthers in his first two NFL seasons.

Worley played college football at West Virginia. It carries a penalty of $10,000 and a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
