The Eagles released linebacker Paul Worrilow on Sunday after practice. Worrilow signed with the Eagles during the 2018 offseason after spending the first five years of his NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons (2013-16) and the Detroit Lions (2017). He suffered a torn ACL on the first day of Organized Team Activities in 2018 and spent the entire season on Injured Reserve. He returned in a limited basis this summer, but did not play in either of the first two preseason games.
During his time in Detroit, he posted 30 tackles including one tackle for loss, one pass defended, and one special teams fumble recovery. The bulk of his career was spent in Atlanta where he became the first undrafted rookie in Falcons history to lead the team in tackles with 127.
While in Atlanta, Worrilow recorded 382 tackles with four sacks and three forced fumbles. In the 2014 season, the Wilmington, Delaware native and University of Delaware product started in all 16 games for the Falcons.
