Just a few days ago, the Cleveland Browns signed receiver Braxton Miller just days after his release by the Eagles.

On Friday, it was announced that another recently released Eagles is signing with a new team.

On Monday, the Eagles brought in linebacker Chris Worley and released Paul Worrilow, who had been continuing to deal with knee inflammation and was unable to play.

Despite fans rooting for the Delaware product to return to the team following his re-signing with the Eagles this offseason, Worrilow just never got enough time to practice and LJ Fort, Alex Singleton and TJ Edwards all moved ahead of him on the depth chart.

He was only out of a job for five days, however. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that the Baltimore Ravens will be signing the recently cut Eagle.

The Ravens were, of course, holding joint practices with the Eagles when Worrilow was cut, so it is interesting that he signed with the team that was on the premises at that time. Perhaps the Ravens got to chat with him and thought he would be a good veteran presence for the team and that he could soon return.

If he is not able to heal and crack the Ravens 53-man roster, he is old enough and has been away from the playing field enough that his playing career may be over, similar to what happened to Chris Maragos over the last few seasons.

Update: Rapoport is now reporting that Paul Worrilow has decided to retire, just a day after signing with the Ravens.
