The Philadelphia Eagles have traded wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for third-year cornerback Daryl Worley.

Originally a third-round draft pick (77th overall) of the Panthers in 2016, Worley appeared in 31 games and made 25 starts for Carolina during his first two NFL seasons, compiling 153 tackles (131 solo), two sacks, three interceptions and 17 passes defensed.

A native of Philadelphia, Worley attended William Penn Charter School and went on to play collegiately at West Virginia University from 2013-15. During his Mountaineers career, Worley became a two-time All-Big 12 selection and totaled 146 tackles, 10 interceptions and 21 passes defensed in his 34 career games. In 2015, he earned first-team All-Big 12 honors after finishing seventh in the country with a team-high six interceptions and a conference-leading 12 passes defensed.

A seven-year veteran, Smith signed with the Eagles as a free agent during the 2017 offseason and helped Philadelphia win a Super Bowl during his lone season with the club. In 2017, Smith appeared in 19 games (17 starts), including playoffs, and totaled 49 receptions for 587 yards and three touchdowns. His 13 postseason receptions ranked third on the team and he caught a 41-yard touchdown on a flea flicker from QB Nick Foles in the NFC Championship Game.
