PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have released cornerback Daryl Worley, hours after he was arrested.
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 Super Bowl champions traded wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers for Worley 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.
