It didn't take long for the Philadelphia Eagles to part ways with newly acquired cornerback Daryl Worley after he was arrested Sunday morning.

"He's obviously very disappointed that he's involved in a situation", Worley's attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., told Channel 6 Sunday night.

Around 5:30 p.m., the Eagles announced Worley's release.

Police said Worley, 23, a North Philadelphia native with a listed address in Swedesboro, N.J., was found passed out in a auto near Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, outside the team's practice facility, around 6 a.m. Sunday. So far there is no information from the authorities if Worley has been charged and what will be his penalty.

Worley was allegedly "combative" with officers, who recovered a gun from the scene.

He went on to play at West Virgina University, where he was teammates with Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas, wide receiver Shelton Gibson and cornerback Rasul Douglas.

Worley, a Philadelphia native and graduate of William Penn Charter High School, spoke at his introductory press conference on March 16 about returning home and playing for the team he grew up watching, and the responsibility that comes with that.

Worley, 23-years old, was entering his third season in the National Football League after being selected in the third round (No. 77 overall) by Carolina. "There's going to be a lot more asked of me both on the field and off the field, but at the same time I have a great support group around me".
