According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, police found Worley passed out inside his vehicle blocking a lane on the highway at around 6 a.m.

The 23-year-old was found passed out in his auto by police on a Philadelphia highway.

Worley reportedly resisted arrest and fought with police before being tased by officers and taken into custody. A gun was reportedly recovered on scene. Observers were surprised when the Eagles were able to get him in exchange for veteran receiver Torrey Smith early this offseason; salary cap concerns made it likely the team would end up releasing Smith eventually.

Swansea had scored only once in the three games top-scorer Ayew had sat out following his red card at Huddersfield last month. The draw was only good enough for the Welsh side to drop down into 17th, five points clear of the bottom three.

The 23-year-old Worley is a Philly native who spent the first two seasons of his National Football League career with the Carolina Panthers after they selected him in the third round of the 2016 National Football League draft out of West Virginia.

This post will be updated as more information becomes available. Players are set to report to the NovaCare complex for the start of offseason workouts on Monday.

"We are in the process of gathering more information about Daryl Worley's arrest this morning", the Eagles announced, per Rapoport.
