Former Carolina Panthers cornerback Daryl Worley was reportedly arrested early Sunday in Philadelphia

Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was arrested Sunday morning after allegedly becoming combative with police who found him passed out in a auto that was blocking traffic, officials said.

The Philadelphia Eagles have made a decision to terminate his contract and release Worley from their list of contracted players. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 1.

When news of the arrest broke out on Sunday morning, the Eagles did confirm that their corner back was arrested and that they were investigating the matter. On questioning, the police allege that Worley had a gun in his vehicle and wasn't willing to be cooperative with the police.

Court records show authorities charged Worley with his first DUI offense, firearms not to be carried without a license, carrying firearms in public in Philadelphia, possession of an instrument of crime with intent to employ it, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct - engaging in fighting.

Worley was only with the team for a little more than a month.

Worley was allegedly "combative" with officers, who recovered a gun from the scene. Defensive end Michael Bennett, who was obtained in a trade with Seattle last month, was indicted on a felony charge of injury of the elderly on March 23 after allegedly shoving a 66-year-old female paraplegic at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017.

Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers.
