Former Philadelphia Eagles CB Daryl Worley Faces DUI, Gun Charges

April 15, 2018 - 8:07 pm

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio/AP) - Former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley is facing multiple charges including DUI, following his arrest early Sunday morning.

NFL Network reported that Worley was arrested Sunday morning near the team's practice facility and that police used a Taser on him after he became combative. The report also said a gun was found in Worley's vehicle.

The team first issued a statement that it was investigating Worley's arrest and later announced he was cut.

On Sunday night officials tell KYW Newsradio that Worley has been arraigned on DUI and gun related charges.

Officials also say Worley's bail has been set $25,000. 

The Super Bowl champions traded wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers for Worley back in March.

They also acquired defensive end Michael Bennett in a trade with Seattle. Bennett was arrested last month on a charge that he injured a paraplegic woman as he tried to get onto the field after last year's Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother.

Worley is a Philadelphia native who played high school football at Penn Charter was a third-round pick in 2016.

He also started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers.
