Eagles trade WR Torrey Smith to the Panthers

BREAKING: Eagles WR Torrey Smith Has Been Traded To The Panthers For CB Daryl Worley BREAKING: Eagles trade Torrey Smith for CB Daryl Worley

The roster purge has officially started.

The decision to move Smith likely came due to the Eagles believing they could acquire additional talent to fill his spot at a more cheap price.

Former Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, who just won his second Super Bowl as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, will put on yet another team's jersey next season.

Instead of just moving on from wide receiver Torrey Smith, the Birds made a decision to send him to the Carolina Panthers for cornerback depth in Daryl Worley.




Worley, 23, is still on his rookie deal at the paltry number of $865,724 this year.

The deal will not become official until Wednesday at the start of the new league year.

And Worley gets to go home: born and raised in Philadelphia, he was a standout at William Penn Charter School before his All-Big 12 career with the Mountaineers. He also has some ties with the Eagles, having played at West Virginia University with Eagles wide receiver Shelton Gibson and running back Wendell Smallwood. Douglas said he and Worley frequently talked as Douglas worked his way through the draft process. With the Panthers, Worley appeared in 31 games over two seasons and amassed three interceptions. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound cornerback will be in a heavy rotation at the position. His catch just before halftime in the divisional round of the playoffs against the Falcons helped set up a 53-yard field goal by Jake Elliott just before halftime. Smith had five catches for 49 yards in Philly's 41-33 victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII and totaled 15 catches, 157 yards and a score in the postseason.
