We begin in the NFL, and former Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington did not have to wait long to find work again after he was released by New England on Monday.
Baltimore Ravens were the team to pick him up on Wednesday, as they signed the 29-year-old to a three-year contract.
Arrington was a solid player for the Patriots last season and acted mostly as their slot corner, defending admirably against T.Y. Hilton last season, as Arrington shut the speedster down twice, which included a stellar AFC Championship Game performance.
"The Baltimore Ravens announced Wednesday they have signed the veteran slot corner, who was released by the New England Patriots on Monday. Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed," NFL.com reported on Thursday.
"Arrington fills a major area of need for the Ravens, who have significant depth issues in their secondary."
The signing of Arrington is a critical one for the Ravens, with starting corner Lardarius Webb coming off a season in which he was rated as 78th out of 108 corners in the NFL in Pro Football Focus' ratings.
It is surprising that the Ravens didn't make an aim to prioritize the corner position during free agency, with four-round selection Tray Walker the only addition of note.
