Worley, who just arrived in Philadelphia this offseason as part of the Torrey Smith trade with the Carolina Panthers, was cut by the Eagles on April 15. According to reports, Worley was found passed out in a vehicle blocking the highway.

He allegedly acted combatively toward police officers responding to the scene and needed to be subdued using a taser.

Originally a third-round pick by the Panthers in 2016, Worley started 14 games for Carolina a year ago. Worley is now facing six charges: DUI, firearms not to be carried without a license, carrying firearms in public, possession of an instrument of crime, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct/engaging in fighting.

On Monday, the Oakland #Raiders made the announcement that they signed Worley to a contract. Worley, a third-round selection (77th overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft, has appeared in 31 contests and made 25 starts, recording 150 tackles (111 solo), two sacks, three interceptions and 19 passes defensed.

With Worley's signing, there will be more pressure on Conley to actually win the starting job this summer.

Oakland's history with off-the-field issues and players extends beyond Smith though, as in the past decade the team has also dealt with Sean Smith (assault), Rolando McClain (firearms), Darrius Heyward-Bey (driving under the influence), and Sebastian Janikowski (assault/driving under the influence).
