Police said Worley, 23, a North Philadelphia native with a listed address in Swedesboro, N.J., was found passed out in a vehicle near Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, outside the team's practice facility, around 6 a.m. Sunday. The 23-year-old was allegedly in possession of a firearm when police found him passed out at the wheel of his vehicle.
After he was awakened around 6 a.m., police say, Worley became combative and fought with officers. A gun was also reportedly found at the scene.
Worley was a former third-round pick by the Panthers in 2016. Worley said at the time he was defending his girlfriend and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault, receiving a six-month suspended sentence. He started in 14 of the 15 games he played last season for the Panthers last season, and had 63 tackles, two interceptions, one sack, and 10 passes defended. Now that he's out of the picture, the Eagles' projected cornerback depth chart has taken a bit of a hit.
Worley was released from custody after posting bail on Sunday, and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 1st.
