Report: Eagles’ Daryl Worley arrested in Philadelphia

Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was arrested this morning in Philadelphia.

NFL Network reports that police used a taser on Worley in the process of arresting him, and a gun was recovered.

There was no immediate word on why Worley was arrested. The incident occurred near the team’s facility.

A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley has only been an Eagle for a month. He was traded from Carolina to Philadelphia in exchange for wide receiver Torrey Smith at the start of the new league year. Last year Worley played in 15 games with 14 starts for the Panthers.

  1. Being combative with police, while carrying a gun (even if you have a permit) just isn’t smart.
    I’m betting alcohol was involved.

  2. Worley is owed his due process but if factual, an arrest with a gun should translate into at least a 6 game suspension. I mean if you get 4 games for domestic violence, how many extra games get tacked on for carrying a weapon?

  3. I read an interesting fact the other day and I think the NFL should share it at the Rookie Symposium: Being detained/arrested by the Police is the WRONG time to be noncompliant. Another study (probably Harvard) concluded that being noncompliant towards the Police increases your chances of feeling 50,000 volts course through your body.

  4. I don’t think football players get arrested at a higher rate than the rest of the young men in their demographic, but the NFLPA, and the players’ agents could do more to help these kids transition from their pre-NFL life, to their life as a wealthy young man. It would also be helpful if the NFLPA and the agent groups had some folks on their staffs that came from those demographics, and actually understand the folks they “represent”.

  5. Love all the comments about “National Felons League” but facts say very different. The rate of arrest for NFL players is half of that of the general population in the 20-39 age range. We just hear about them more because they are newsworthy.

    And as to a “downfall” of the Eagles because of the arrest of a guy who has been on the team for a month? Probably not.

  6. Awful Beautiful Life…..I miss my friend…..sounds like life to me……A good day to run. All country music singer Darryl Worley songs. This is not a coincidence people.

  7. People worried about the Rams locker room better look at there own players . Its a violent game and lots of players are violent by nature , I’m sure we will have more players thrown in jail before the first game of the season , Its just the way it is and we love the big hits …That’s why I watch football to see OBs and WRs get smashed

  8. It’s a bird, It’s a plane, It’s Michael Bennett to the rescue. Send up the Bat Signal. This guys was profiled.

  9. The report I read says Worley was arrested AND it says a gun was recovered at the scene. But it does not state that it was Worley’s gun, it kept those as two separate statements. So Im not sure that can be assumed.

  10. Love all the comments about “National Felons League” but facts say very different. The rate of arrest for NFL players is half of that of the general population in the 20-39 age range. We just hear about them more because they are newsworthy.

    No idea what side you are on regarding my next comment, but for all of those players and fans siding with the Malcolm Jenkins and the Michael Bennetts of the world, that all cops are racist and horrible, please refer to the writers comment above. Just like not all NFL players are felons, not all cops are bad people….not all cops are racist and horrible people. And to use the above writer’s words, we just hear about them more bc they are newsworthy. If racial profiling does happen just once, then that is one time too many in my opinion, and hopefully alot more people’s opinions as well. So instead of blanketing people with stereotypes and taking a knee vs all cops. Lets put commomn sense with these protests and not create bigger divides in this country than there already is….now more than ever we need to come together and not divide this great country more.

    With a great coaching staff, a great front office, and a top 3 and future league MVP QB…..Bring it baby

  12. Did You Know (via ESPN’s Stats & Information): The Patriots have 16 first-team All-Pro selections via the draft since 2000, which ranks behind the Panthers (18), Cowboys (17) and Seahawks (17).

    Or drugs. . .NFL banned drugs. . . Guess a drug screen will tell the story. . . No doubt a multi-wk suspension is in Worley’s future if not jail for assaulting law enforcement. . . Maybe he and Bennett can bunk together in a jail cell. . . And Philly gave up Torrey Smith for THIS. . . Bet Panthers are laughing hysterically and doin high fives.

  15. Glad he was in Philly and not in Charlotte. This was an epic Bilechick type of trade. Good work Marty the Hurney. Get rid of him before he fades into the sunset. Get something in return for a bust.

  16. “I guess nobody told him the SuperBowl celebration ended when the new league year began.”

    Did you read the article? He was a Panther last year, not an Eagle, and not part of the Super Bowl team.

  17. New England trolls cannot get over their team lost to a much better Eagle team which by the way scored 44 on their team. the crap they come up with about their coach being a genius or the best ever stuns most fans, how they get to ignore the Paul Browns, Tom Laundry’s and joe Gibbs etc. of the past shows their imbecile ignorance. Fourty four, fourty four, fourty four……………

    Chris Rock presented a very good analysis on it that did a great job explaining the key points. Frankly it should be required annual viewing for all players. All.

    ——————————————————-
    IF it was his gun and he was carrying, not clear from the article, was he not just exercising his constitutional right under the Second Amendment? There has been a great hue and cry about players rights to exercise their First Amendment rights for about a year or so. Or, is one constitutional right not equal to another? Is the First Amendment more important than the Thirteenth, or the Nineteenth more important than the Fifth?
    Interesting conundrum, IMHO.

  20. Since soooo many kids are very involved with football it’s imperative they act like role models, esp for underprivileged kids to see you can be an honor adult no matter how you grew up. I agree that there should be a transition team. They should have to do anger management since most are violent arrests and not just dwi type arrests. I’m sure also this did involve alcohol. I’ve watched the best guy in the world turn psycho from alcohol. So sad because they never see how it just destroys all the good in their lives. I do wonder I will admit if they ever have moments when sober when they see what they’re doing to themselves or if they feel any remorse or regret. And drink again to try to forget it. A spiral they can’t get out of? If this does involve alcohol and violence as a result they have to force he get help bc most will not on their own. If he doesn’t then he loses his career. It needs to be that simple. The nfl also has a responsibility bc they are the country’s iconic figure and they make kids millionaires with big egos.

  21. Just here to remind tylawpick6 that the eagles are the current Superbowl champs. Carry on. . . .

  22. Players get in more trouble where they grew up? Ok well mn has a handful of players that’s grew up here and none of them have been in trouble with the law. It just seems that some teams don’t care about what type of person a player is.

    Enjoy your single SB win…..just like Trent Dilfer.

    Oh and your defense gave up 505 yards passing….you better hope your coach fixes that

    While I agree with you, if I am not mistaken, concealed carry is not allowed in the City limits of Philadelphia (not sure what actual area this happened in). So if he came from an area that allows it and did not know this, that may have added to any problems that occurred in this situation.

  27. “Worley is owed his due process but if factual, an arrest with a gun should translate into at least a 6 game suspension.”

    Maybe he has a gun permit. Even if he had one from Carolina and had not updated it yet in Philly, that would make this less of a deal. It’s ok to carry, you just have to do it legally.

  28. Retire, then fire your agent, claim your organs are failing, say your reporting Monday, then asked to be released.

    Richie Incognito

  29. We’ll just cut him…we didn’t expect to get any compensation for Torrey Smith anyway. He’s not even worthy of being sized up for a Eagles uniform for OTAs. Wearing Eagles midnight green is a PRIVILEGE THESE DAYS.

  30. Anybody starting to feel the fairy dust the iggles had on their shoulders last year has blown away ?

  31. There is more to it than a simple carry bc he was clearly taken down by the police.

  32. If my embarrassment of a football team FINALLY won a Super Bowl I would think that I would at least know the score and if not that, how about how many points my beloved team scored. But I guess when you’ve been “educated” in the Philadelphia public school system a few less fortunates tend to slip through the cracks. Here’s a simple arithmetic problem for you. What’s 44 minus 3. If you’re not sure maybe your legal guardian or parole officer can help you.

    Why is that? Because 2 guys that weren’t even on the eagles super bowl roster have some legal issues? They won without them so it’s not like the eagles are banking on them to save this season.

  35. “New England trolls cannot get over their team lost to a much better Eagle team”

    It was one touchdown better and most Pats fans have done nothing but say congrats for a game well played.

    Now the Eagles will find out that every single team they play will paint the biggest bullseye of the season on the Eagles game. Every team they play, even the crappy ones, will pull out all the stops and make their best effort of the season against Philly because every team wants to be the one that beats the champs. Its a harder road back to the Super Bowl the year after a win in it.

    Good luck to Philly and we’ll see if either the Eagles or the Pats make it back in the coming season.

    2nd amendment brother. Ask any gun toting American, it’s his right.

  37. Why does the far left always insist on protecting these guys?
    Just like the kneeling thing, if they follow Law Enforcement and don’t, argue, resist, and fight, nothing happens the vast majority of the time!

  38. where’s our social justice warrior kap, off taking a knee? this guy apparently resisted the cops because they had to taser him.

  39. At least all the talk of Ronald Darby being traded will stop..Situation was one of their top 5 CBs was going to be traded..Just cut this clown now. Innocent or not, he still failed to follow the police commands given.

  40. Thanks to Jason Kelce, Michael Bennett, and Worley, the Eagles are going from a Cinderella team to a Wicked Witch team.
    Most non-Eagles were rooting for them against the Pats, and I was one of them. Now I wish they had lost.

    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    If he didn’t brandish the firearm and he was carrying it legally, there shouldn’t be any. Get a better mentality.

  42. I’m thinking the cops must have found the gun after tasing him. Otherwise, they might have shot him.

  43. honestly Worley is likely a ok Backup Safety he is good in Zone sucks in everything else & isn’t fast or smart enough to to likely start ,another Failed Dave Gettleman pick & he traded a 3rd & 4th to move up 5 spots & draft this fool only to be traded to the Eagles a few yrs later

  44. Typical Eagles player. The Eagles act like they won the Super Bowl with classy players yet we see Bennett and now this guy arrested for being nothing but criminals. I don’t want to hear about how the Eagles won the Super Bowl with players who were good citizens. Spare me,

    Do you have any other posts? Get new material bro.

    Again, 41 points isn’t lucky. Your team sucked in the big game and our D was one play better.

    New England’s next chance at a SB appearance is somewhere around 2030 maybe.

  46. I am guessing he was at Chicki & Petes and passed out a block away. Come on dude get an uber or cab, hope he has a permit for that gun or he is screwed

  47. Eaglesmania….ne is not my team genius….I have plenty of other material, but I think I will just keep posting that one bc it annoys eagle fans the most…And it is 100 % true…..eagles cut worley but keep bennett…eagles making a statement…we need a de more than we need a cb…pathetic.

    Yeah……..maybe you and your coach should also remember they gave up 374 yards passing to a second string QB, and 164 rushing yards at 6.1 average a clip, 538 total yards in all. Oh, and BTW…….41 points.

    Might want to think of fixing that too……since you are geniuses and all.

    And dumb Eagles fans think they have a “much” better team than NE despite only winning by 8 points. NE didn’t have their BEST defensive player or their BEST receiver and LOST their second best receiver in the middle of the game and STILL almost pulled it off.

    BTW, there is no coach named Tom Laundry.

    Neither of these guys were on the eagles team when they won the super bowl. You’ll have to find another angle to troll the eagles. Pretty lame attempt.

    Yea and the eagles had all their star players, huh? Only reason Brady got mvp last year was because wentz got hurt. Nevermind the eagles losing their best linebacker, best o-linemen, best return man and best special teams ace. And lost their starting kicker too. And you say the eagles ONLY won by 8 points? That is a larger margin of victory than the patriots have EVER had in a super bowl.
