Former Eagle Daryl Worley signs with Raiders

A week after the Eagles released him, Daryl Worley has reportedly found a new home.

The 23-year-old cornerback is signing with the Raiders, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Worley was arrested early on the morning of Sunday, April 14 when he was found passed out in his vehicle near the NovaCare Complex. Less than 12 hours after being arrested, the Eagles released Worley, who is being charged with six different offenses. After being released, Worley cleared waivers.

Despite the Eagles’ abrupt decision to cut Worley, the Raiders obviously feel comfortable enough to sign him.

Worley’s new home will be in Oakland, but he does have a preliminary hearing set in Philadelphia for May 1.

Worley was the return from the Panthers in the trade for Torrey Smith earlier this offseason. He grew up in North Philadelphia and the trade was a chance for him to play for his hometown team, but Worley lasted just one month and one day with the Eagles.
