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

Worley was said to have been combative, forcing police to tase him with a stun gun. He is alleged to have begun fighting with officers who woke him and police used a taser to subdue him, a source close to the situation said, confirming an NFL Network report.

Worley was traded to the Eagles by the Panthers in March in a deal that sent wide receiver Torrey Smith to Carolina. A gun was recovered, which would seem to not have been properly registered, according to the charges.

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

Worley's release could see the Eagles target a cornerback in the upcoming draft to provide more depth at the position for their upcoming title defense. Worley said at the time he was defending his girlfriend and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault, receiving a six-month suspended sentence.
