Ravens Release CB Kyle Arrington, Sign CB Al-Hajj Shabazz

The Baltimore Ravens announced Monday that they’ve officially signed cornerbacks Al-Hajj Shabazz and Brandon Boykin and to contracts and released CB Kyle Arrington with a failed physical designation.

Arrington, 30, originally signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Hofstra back in 2008. He spent a year with the Buccaneers before catching on with the Patriots during the 2009 season.

After six seasons in New England, the Ravens signed Arrington to a three-year, $7 million contract that included $2.8 million guaranteed back in May of 2015. Although, he agreed to a pay cut last year.

Baltimore, unfortunately, placed him on injured reserve with a concussion where he remained for the entire 2016 season.

In 2015, Arrington appeared in 15 games for the Ravens and recorded 28 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass defenses.

Shabazz, 24, originally signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of West Chester in July of last year but was waived as the team trimmed their roster down to 75 players.

The Steelers signed him to a future/reserve contract in February of last year but was waived as the team got down to the 53-man limit. He was on and off of the Steelers’ active roster for much of the season, but had a brief stint with the Texans before returning to Pittsburgh last December.

Shabazz was waived shortly after this year’s draft.

In 2016, Shabazz appeared in eight games and recorded just one tackle.
