CB - FA
Week 14 Outlook
Baltimore Ravens release cornerback Kyle Arrington due to a failed physical designation. Last season he suffered a concussion during the preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers and was placed on injured reserve. His release creates $2.1 million in salary cap space.
Arrington signed in 2015 and in 15 games (four starts), he recorded 28 combined tackles (6 assist) and three passes defended. Not a big impact. The team is shaking up the secondary with two new cornerback signings to go along with a crowded CB depth chart including veterans Jimmy Smith & Shelton Price, newly signed Brandon Carr and draft pick Marlon Humphrey.
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.
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.
