  • Eagles react on Twitter to trade of WR Torrey Smith

The roster purge has officially started.

The Eagles are now projected to be about $14 million over the National Football League salary cap of $177.2 million and need to reach that figure on Wednesday.

The Panthers have agreed to trade for veteran Philadelphia Eagles wideout Torrey Smith in exchange for third-round cornerback Daryl Worley, according to a league source who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade is not yet official.

The decision to move Smith likely came due to the Eagles believing they could acquire additional talent to fill his spot at a more inexpensive price. Worley is on a rookie deal and set to count $650,000 toward the cap.

The deal can not become official until the new league year opens Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Worley, 23, grew up in Philadelphia and is a William Penn Charter School graduate. Douglas said he and Worley frequently talked as Douglas worked his way through the draft process.

As for Smith, he was a key player for the Eagles in their Super Bowl run after a lackluster regular season (36 receptions for 430 yards and two touchdowns). It also gives Worley a chance to play in his hometown for the reigning Super Bowl champions.

One of the teams that has been quiet through much of this stretch is the Carolina Panthers despite having a need on the offensive of the ball to improve their group of wide receivers. The Panthers will play the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field this year.

The 6-foot, 209-pounder stepped up his game in the playoffs, however, catching 13 passes for 157 yards and a TD.
