Worley, recently traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, was charged with violation of the uniform firearms act, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct-fighting and related offenses Monday, a day after police used a Taser on him and arrested the football player after he allegedly became combative.

The Eagles released Worley following his arrest.

Police got a call of a auto blocking the roadway on the 1300 block of Pattison Avenue around 6 a.m. on April 15.

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. A gun was also reportedly found at the scene.

The Philadelphia Police Department responded to PennLive's request for information to confirm Worley's arrest and charge but did not provide more details.

A Philadelphia native, Worley was traded back to his hometown Eagles for veteran wide receiver Torrey Smith, and he was expected to compete for a starting cornerback position. The Carolina Panthers took Worley in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and he started 25 games for the Panthers in his first two NFL seasons. Philadelphia won't have any cap penalties for releasing Worley.

Worley played college football at West Virginia. "I have a great support system in place and can go to them for whatever I could ask for".
