Philly.com reports Worley, a Philadelphia native, was found passed out in a car on Broad Street, near the Eagles’ practice facility, and was in possession of a gun.
Worley was a star player on the William Penn Charter High School Quakers, and went on to play for the the University of West Virginia Mountaineers.
The Eagles acquired Worley in a trade with the Carolina Panthers in March. They also acquired defensive end Michael Bennett in a trade with Seattle. Bennett was arrested last month on a charge that he injured a paraplegic woman as he tried to get onto the field after last year’s Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother.
Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers.
