The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley, according to two people familiar with the deal.

The trade reached on Friday won't be officially announced until the NFL's league year opens next Wednesday. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the trade information.

Smith had 36 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns while starting 14 games in his first season in Philadelphia. He'll earn $5 million this season so the move saves the Super Bowl champion Eagles much-needed space under the salary cap.

The team acquired three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday.

Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers. He joins a crowded secondary.
