Panthers had concerns about Daryl Worley's 'nightlife'
Apr 16 2018
The 23-year-old Worley is a Philly native who spent the first two seasons of his National Football League career with the Carolina Panthers after they selected him in the third round of the 2016 National Football League draft out of West Virginia.
Authorities recovered a gun on the scene in South Philly near the Eagles' facility after using a taser on Worley, Ian Rapoport reported. Worley had reportedly become "combative" with police. He is the second player the Eagles acquired this offseason who now has legal issues, after Michael Bennett turned himself in to police to face "injury to the elderly" charges that allegedly occurred during the Patriots-Falcons Super Bowl in February of 2017.
According to Rapoport, Worley was found passed out inside his vehicle, which was blocking a highway.
Worley pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault charge during his college career at West Virginia, and the Panthers chose to move on from the young defensive back after two seasons.
The #Eagles recently traded for CB Daryl Worley in exchange for Torrey Smith (who they were slated to release).
