According to police, Worley was found passed out inside of a car in Philadelphia at around 6am on the morning of Sunday, April 15. The cornerback was combative with the cops, who ultimately tasered him. After that, police found a gun in Worley’s possession that was not properly registered. He now faces multiple charges, including a violation of the uniform firearms act, driving under the influence, and disorderly conduct.
Worley is now on his third team of 2018. In March, the former third-round pick was shipped from the Panthers to the Eagles in the Torrey Smith trade. The defending champs did not want to wait for things to shake out in court, but the Raiders are apparently willing to take a flier on him.
The Raiders will start Gareon Conley and free agent pickup Rashaan Melvin at the main cornerback spots. Worley joins Melvin, Shareece Wright, Leon Hall, Senquez Golson, and Shaquille Richardson as newcomers to Oakland’s CB group.
In two seasons with Carolina, the West Virginia product recorded three interceptions and two sacks while starting 25 of his 31 games.
