The New England Patriots added another layer of uncertainty to their cornerback position Monday, informing seventh-year veteran Kyle Arrington that he will be released, according to a league source. A reunion between Arrington and the Patriots in the future has not been ruled out, the source said. Arrington was scheduled to earn $3 million this season and count $4.625 million against the salary cap. (ESPN Boston)
Kyle Arrington has been a part of the Patriots secondary for years now. While he has never been a top notch cornerback he has always been serviceable and provided depth at the position for New England. This move makes the Patriots secondary even weaker after losing Darrelle Revis, Brandon Browner and cutting Alfonzo Dennard. Look for the Patriots to pick up some more cornerbacks before preseason.
