Recently acquired Philadelphia Eagle Daryl Worley was arrested overnight according to police

Worley was detained after police received a 911 call about an automobile obstructing a highway at Philadelphia, according to an NFL Network report. The 23-year-old cornerback was reportedly arrested in the Philadelphia area. Philly.com's Les Bowen reported that Worley might not be with the team after the incident.

Worley becomes the second new Eagles player that was arrested this offseason along with Michael Bennett. The NFL can take disciplinary action against Worley regardless of how his case plays out. Reports say he was being combative and cops had to break out the taser to cool things down.

The Eagles in a statement to Rapoport said they are "in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning".

A gun was reportedly found on the scene.


Following Sunday's arrest, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer tweeted that a Panthers source told him the team was concerned about Worley's commitment and love of "the nightlife".

Rapoport added more details.

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

In 2014, while still a student at West Virginia, he pleaded no contest to an assault charge following an incident at a nightclub. It doesn't sound good.
