Lost in the Josh McCown news this weekend was the unfortunate, if inevitable release of linebacker Paul Worrilow, who missed the entirety of 2018 with an ACL tear before suffering a setback at the beginning of camp this year.

It’s a big bummer for the Wilmington native, who made it to the NFL as an undrafted Delaware Blue Hen back in 2013.

His roster replacement is Chris Worley, a 23-year-old former Ohio State linebacker who went undrafted last year but wound up on the Bengals practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster, played two games, and then was later waived. Seattle then signed him and waived him.

He’s 6’1″, about 240 pounds, a linebacker who played all three positions in college.

With his addition, the Eagles LB depth chart looks something like this, in no real order:

  • Nigel Bradham (still recovering from injury)
  • Kamu Grugier-Hill (injury)
  • Zach Brown
  • L.J. Fort
  • Nate Gerry
  • Alex Singleton
  • T.J. Edwards
  • Chris Worley
  • Asantay Brown

Here’s a highlight reel from college, after el jumpo:

    Looks more like a SS. Kid can tackle and cover a bit. We’ll see this preseason if he can make the squad!
