Per the report, “Worley was found passed out inside a vehicle blocking a highway” and “a gun was recovered at the scene.”
The incident reportedly occurred near the Eagles team facility around 6 a.m. ET.
“We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley’s arrest [Sunday] morning,” the Eagles announced.
Set to enter his third NFL season, Worley was acquired from the Carolina Panthers this offseason for veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith. Worley started 14 games last season for the Panthers and totaled 63 tackles and a career-high 2 interceptions.
Worley was expected to compete for a starting job in Philadelphia. However, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer, “it is likely” that the Eagles will release Worley following the incident.
