The Raiders have signed Worley. Worley, who the Eagles had acquired from the Panthers in exchange for wideout Torrey Smith back in March, was let go by Philadelphia in the wake of the cornerback's April 15 arrest. The 2016 third-rounder played in 15 games, including 14 starts for the Panthers last season, en route to notching 64 tackles and two interceptions.
The Eagles have released Worley. Worley, who the Eagles had acquired from the Panthers in exchange for wideout Torrey Smith last month, was quickly let go by Philadelphia in the wake of the cornerback's Sunday morning arrest. It remains to be seen if Worley will be subject to any discipline at the hands of the NFL, but Sunday's incident led to the Eagles parting way with the 2016 third-rounder, who logged 64 tackles and two picks for Carolina last season.
The Eagles confirmed that they were "in the process of gathering more information" regarding Worley's Sunday morning arrest, ESPN.com reports. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Worley, who was arrested near the Eagles' team facility at approximately 6 AM on Sunday, allegedly became combative with police, who reportedly administrated a taser on Worley. The cornerback joined the Eagles last month in trade that sent receiver Torrey Smith to the Panthers.
Worley totaled seven tackles (six solo) and made an interception in Sunday's 31-24 win over the Packers. Worley not only finished second on the Panthers in tackles, but he also hauled in his second interception in as many weeks. Although his 52 tackles don't stack up to last year's 88, Worley's two picks on the campaign at least top his rookie output.
Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Worley is getting his foot checked out, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports. It's not clear exactly when Worley suffered the foot injury, but he was in a walking boot Sunday night after playing in 52 of the team's 70 defensive snaps against the Jets. Expect an update regarding the cornerback's status to come either later Monday or Tuesday morning.
