The Philadelphia Eagles released Daryl Worley on Sunday after the cornerback was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence along with weapons and disorderly conduct charges, Philadelphia police confirmed to NFL.com.

Worley's arrest was first reported by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

The Eagles confirmed Worley's arrest prior to his release, saying in a statement, "We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning."

Rapoport reported police found Worley passed out inside a vehicle blocking an intersection in Philadelphia. Law enforcement administered a taser on Worley and recovered a gun at the scene, per Rapoport. Worley was charged with Violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct (fighting) and other offenses in connection with the incident, police said.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo added that the incident occurred near Philadelphia's team facility.

Worley had not played a snap for the Eagles. The former Carolina Panthers cornerback was traded to Philadelphia this offseason in exchange for receiver Torrey Smith.

The third-year corner started 25 of 31 games played in Carolina, recording 150 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks.
