The Reporter (Lansdale, PA) - - SPORTS - By Rob Maaddi

PHILADEL­PHIA » 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 re­port also said a gun was found in Wor­ley’s ve­hi­cle.

The team first is­sued a state­ment that it was in­ves­ti­gat­ing Wor­ley’s ar­rest and later an­nounced he was cut.

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.

Wor­ley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two sea­sons for the Pan­thers.
