The Eagles wasted no time releasing defensive back Daryl Worley after he was arrested early Sunday morning.

Worley, 23, was reportedly tased during the 6 a.m. arrest after he allegedly became combative toward police. "We're going to look at it and hopefully resolve it favorably enough so that he can maintain his career".

The Eagles released Worley on Sunday evening after review of the information and a discussion among the key decision makers.

Police said Worley, 23, a North Philadelphia native with a listed address in Swedesboro, N.J., was found passed out in a vehicle near Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, outside the team's practice facility, around 6 a.m. Sunday.

Worley grew up in North Philadelphia on Broad Street and is a graduate of Penn Charter School, which is also Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's alma mater. The Eagles began their offseason workout program at the NovaCare Complex on Monday.

Although Commerce Department officials would not discuss the report, they said the department followed up in February. The U.S. court ruled that ZTE had to pay $890 million in penalties with a possible additional penalty of $300 million.

The report said Worley was "in possession of a gun" when police found him.

Worley had started for the Carolina Panthers in 25 out of 31 games played in the state and recorded 150 tackles, 2 sacks and 3 interceptions.

The Eagles chose to send a clear message to its roster of players by coming down hard on 23 year old Daryl Worley.

More details have emerged about Worley's arrest on Sunday that led to the Eagles ultimately deciding to move on from a player they had just acquired last month in a trade with the Carolina Panthers. It carries a penalty of $10,000 and a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
