After he was awakened around 6 a.m., police say, Worley became combative and fought with officers.

Daryl Worley was released by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in the wake of his arrest, and the details surrounding the incident are going to make it very hard for him to find another job. A gun was also recovered on the scene. Police say Worley was found passed out in a parked auto that was blocking the street in the area of Broad and Pattison, just down the road from the Eagles' training facility. Worley said at the time he was defending his girlfriend and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault, receiving a six-month suspended sentence.

Worley was expected to take the place of Patrick Robinson, who played a significant part in the team's run to the Super Bowl but left in free agency.

The Eagles confirmed Worley's arrest and later Sunday announced that they had released Worley.
