Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley has pleaded guilty to three charges stemming from an April arrest in his hometown of Philadelphia, according to court documents (hat tip to Vic Tafur). The guilty charges include: driving under the influence, carrying firearms in public, and resisting arrest. Worley is now facing two years of probation.

Worley’s arrest occurred back on April 15. The Eagles released him a mere eight hours after news of his arrest was made public. Worley unsurprisingly passed through waivers unclaimed but ultimately ended up receiving an offer to play for Jon Gruden’s Oakland Raiders.

Worley’s career as an Eagle was incredibly short-lived. Philadelphia originally acquired the 23-year-old defensive back by sending Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers in a trade made back in March. 37 days later, the Eagles released Worley.

It remains to be seen if Worley will face further punishment by the league. He’s still subject to the NFL’s personal conduct policy. It wouldn’t be surprising if a multi-game suspension comes his way.
