The Eagles acquired Worley last month in the trade that sent wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback and former West Virginia Mountaineers star Daryl Worley reportedly was arrested and tased following an incident early Sunday, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Worley, 23, had two interceptions last season and has three in his two-year career. That's when police arrived and a confrontation unfolded, according to the report.

According to a report by Joseph Person at the Charlotte Observer, a source with the Panthers says the team was concerned about his focus and commitment. Law enforcement administered a taser on Worley and recovered a gun at the scene.

The Eagles confirmed his arrest, saying in a statement that they were "gathering more information".

Worley was found passed out inside a vehicle that was blocking the highway at the intersection of Broad Street and Pattison Ave after someone called 911.

Garafolo added the incident occurred near Philadelphia's team facility. In college, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault. He was traded for this offseason.
