Arrington (concussion) was released Monday by the Ravens, Garrett Downing of BaltimoreRavens.com reports.
The Ravens made a handful of changes to their secondary on Monday, releasing Arrington in order to sign Brandon Boykin and Al-Hajj Shabazz. All this comes in the wake of Tavon Young's ACL tear, which will sideline the nickel back for the entire 2017 season. Arrington's release seemed inevitable, as the team freed up $2.1 million with his departure. After missing all of last season due to concussions, Arrington will now look to compete for a reserve spot elsewhere if he can remain on the field.
Arrington (concussion) will likely will be released once he passes a physical, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Arrington was placed on injured reserve in August, ending his bid for the nickelback role in Baltimore's defense. Set to turn 31 before Week 1 and carrying a $2.8 million cap hit, he'll need to accept a major pay cut to have any shot of sticking with the Ravens. It's unclear whether he's ready to pass a physical or still recovering from last year's concussion.
Arrington (concussion) has been placed on the Ravens' injured reserve list.
Arrington suffered what is being considered a concussion during the Ravens' first preseason contest, but there may be more to that story considering how he has already been deemed as out for the entire year. However, he had been considered a long shot to make the final team even before going down.
Arrington left Thursday's matchup with the Panthers to undergo concussion protocol.
Arrington entered Thursday's preseason third on the Ravens depth chart at the left cornerback position. Don't expect him to return to action until all of his symptoms have passed if he did indeed suffer a concussion.
The Ravens have signed cornerback Kyle Arrington to a three-year contract, pending a physical, the team announced on Wednesday.
Arrington was cut by the Patriots on Tuesday. He totaled 39 tackles with two forced fumbles and two touchdowns in 14 games this season.
Veteran cornerback Kyle Arrington is being targeted by the Ravens after his release from New England, according to ESPN, which is further claiming that the Panthers are also in the mix.
The 28-year-old Arrington played in all but two games over the last five seasons, but his production fell in 2014.
Cornerback Kyle Arrington, who played a valuable role in the Patriots secondary, will be released by the team, according to ESPN.com.
According to the source, there remains a possiblity that the Patriots could re-sign Arrington, who was scheduled to earn $3 million this season. The move leaves the Patriots without its top three players at the position from last season, with Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner leaving in free agency.
In two losses against the Patriots this season, including Sunday's 45-7 loss in the AFC title game, Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton was bottled up offensively. Hilton had just three catches for 24 yards in a 42-20 loss Nov. 16 and had one catch for 36 yards Sunday.
"Coach (Bill) Belichick, he did the same thing, had the same game plan -- Kyle Arrington on me, (safety Devin McCourty) over the top," Hilton said, per ESPN. "They took away everything. When I tried to go across the middle, they had the linebackers drop. The linebackers hit me to try to disrupt me. It pretty much was the same game plan as last time. They did a pretty good job of taking me away."
Patriot coach Bill Belichick praised Arrington's effort against Hilton, who is headed to the Pro Bowl after totaling 82 catches for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns during the regular season.
"You know Kyle really stepped up; played T.Y. good," Belichick said. "T.Y. is a great receiver. He’s got outstanding speed and quickness, and he’s a tough guy to cover on all routes: short, intermediate, deep. He had a great catch on the sideline dragging his feet. It was a perfect throw and a great catch. But that’s what it’s like playing against them. But Kyle competed really well. He jammed, and he and Devin did a real good job on T.Y."
