He was slated to count $5 million against the Eagles' cap next season.

After acquiring Michael Bennett on Wednesday from the Seattle Seahawks, general manager Howie Roseman began working toward financial freedom by dealing Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for cornerback Daryl Worley.

Smith, 29, was a key part of the Eagles' Super Bowl champion team, catching 36 passes for 430 yards with two touchdowns.

The move signals that the Eagles will be giving Mack Hollins a chance to start next season in Smith's spot.

Smith is now a two-time Super Bowl victor with 4,951 yards and 39 touchdowns to his credit over the course of a seven-year National Football League career with the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Eagles. He added 13 catches for 157 yards and a touchdown in three playoff games as the Eagles won Super Bowl LII.

In Worley, the Eagles get a third-year player with plenty of starting experience.

Look for the former third-round pick out of West Virginia to start alongside Ronald Darby in Philadelphia, giving the Eagles a quality tandem. The addition of Worley and Jones, who sat all but one game of his rookie season while recovering from a ruptured Achilles' tendon, means that veteran cornerback Patrick Robinson, who led the Eagles with four interceptions this season, probably won't be re-signed.

The Eagles were expected to decline Smith's $5M option which would have made him a free agent.
