The start of the free agency period is quickly approaching, which has pushed many teams across the league into action to commit to moves to begin reshaping their rosters.

This move came out a bit of left field given that Smith continued to voice that he felt like the Eagles were going to pick up his $5 million for each of the final two years of his three-year, $15 million deal that he signed with the team last offseason.

The trade reached on Friday won't be officially announced until the NFL's league year opens next Wednesday.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers have made a trade involving wide receiver Torrey Smith and cornerback Daryl Worley, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. According to ESPN.com, Worley's base salary is $650,000.

Additionally, one person was killed in Suffern, New York , after a tree collapsed on top of them , News 12 Westchester reported. In New York City , the Emergency Management Department issued a hazardous travel advisory for Wednesday as well.

Worley, the Panthers' third-round draft pick in 2016, started 14 games this season with 64 tackles, two interceptions and a sack.

And Worley gets to go home: born and raised in Philadelphia, he was a standout at William Penn Charter School before his All-Big 12 career with the Mountaineers. He started 25 games during the past two seasons, including 14 previous year. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Worley adds another young cornerback to a crowded Eagles depth chart.

The Carolina Panthers' makeover of their wide receiver corps is full steam ahead.

Last month, Smith was in studio with Stacy Lyn, talking about the Super Bowl victory and his decision not to join the Eagles for any White House visit, if invited by President Donald Trump. In the playoffs, he recorded 13 receptions for 147 yards and a touchdown.
