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 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.
