Another of the Eagles newest acquisitions, defensive end Michael Bennett has received some negative press and has also been the subject of some controversy. Was that also part of what influenced the Eagles’ decision to let Worley go? It isn’t certain, but it may be a possibility.
One of the positives surrounding Bennett, if you’re pulling for him, is the amount of time that preceded his indictment and how little we’ve heard since he’s turned himself in. Typically, from a legal standpoint, that usually means there isn’t much to the accusation.
The Eagles, recently, have taken a shot or two on guys who were seen as character concerns. In those cases, Jalen Mills and Nigel Bradham for instance, they believed most of what was said about each of those guys was unwarranted.
They chose to stand by those guys and were right. When they haven’t, think Josh Huff, they were also right.

Let’s get one thing straight. No one’s calling Worley a bad person. The events on April 15th appear to be isolated, and Worley appears to have a clean track record. Still, when you take all things into account, this is probably the best move for both teams.
