According to Timothy Rapp of Bleacher Report, the Eagles may cut Worley after his arrest early Sunday morning. When he was found by police early on Sunday morning, his vehicle was blocking a lane on the highway, and he was passed out.

Mike Garafolo, also of the NFL Network is reporting that the incident occurred at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, just outside the Eagles practice facility.

Rapoport reported that the Eagles issued a statement that said the team is "gathering more information" about his arrest. A gun was reportedly recovered on scene.

While in college at West Virginia, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault after a 2014 incident at a nightclub.

The news of the William Penn Charter School graduate's arrest was first reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rappaport, USA Today said.

In a move to bolster their secondary, the Eagles sent Smith to the Carolina Panthers for Worley.
