On questioning, the police allege that Worley had a gun in his auto and wasn't willing to be cooperative with the police.

Former Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers cornerback Daryl Worley was charged with several offenses a day after cops found him drunk and passed out behind the wheel of a vehicle.

The report said Worley was "in possession of a gun" when police found him.

When news of the arrest broke out on Sunday morning, the Eagles did confirm that their corner back was arrested and that they were investigating the matter.

The team had acquired Worley, a Philadelphia native, earlier this off season from the Carolina Panthers, in a deal for WR Torrey Smith.

He went on to play at West Virgina University, where he was teammates with Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas, wide receiver Shelton Gibson and cornerback Rasul Douglas.

The football player was passed out in his auto Sunday morning near the teams' practice facility in South Philadelphia. He was the Panthers' third-round draft pick in 2016 and started 25 games over two seasons.

On Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department announced Worley, 23, a North Philly native who attended William Penn Charter School and now resides in Swedesboro NJ, would be charged with DUI, violation of the uniform firearms act and disorderly conduct.

Bennett turned himself into Houston police on March 26 and was released on $10,000 bond.
