News broke Sunday morning that Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was arrested and tasered by police after becoming combative. This arrest, according to Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer, could lead to the player’s release.
Worley reportedly fell asleep behind the wheel of his car while driving on the freeway. When he was found by police early on Sunday morning, his car was blocking a lane on the highway, and he was passed out. Just as troubling, Worley allegedly had a gun on him when the police arrived on the scene.
Vita Vea, DT, Washington: Vea is unlikely to make it to 20, but nose tackles slide from time to time. At 347 pounds, the first thought might be he’s simply a space-eater, but that would be an inaccurate assessment. Sure, he can eat space if you need him to, and he’s about as strong as they come in this prospect class, but Vea is a deceptive athlete who has drawn comparisons to Haloti Ngata. The Lions added a stopgap nose tackle in free agency, signing Sylvester Williams to a one-year deal. Vea would not only bring long-term stability to the position, but would be an immediate upgrade.
“I always admired the way the Packers handled it with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers,” Giants co-owner John Mara said Sunday, via Tom Rock of Newsday.
“The way I look at that, if we wanted to do that is: Tell me who we’re going to get with these other picks and compare it with the person we could have gotten with the second pick and then let’s see which scenario is going to make us better,” Mara said of a possible trade. “It’s an opportunity for us to get a lot better.
“To be able to pick at the top of each of these rounds and particularly with the amount of quality at the top of this draft, it gives us a chance to do something . . . They’re all important picks, but the No. 2 pick in the draft is an important pick that can have a huge effect on the future of this franchise. So you have to make the right decision.”
And if that decision is sitting tight and adding a quarterback who will start the clock ticking on Manning, that doesn’t sound like anything Mara is opposed to.
