CB Kyle Arrington released by the Ravens

Posted June 06, 2017

They will add Boykin, who missed all of last season with an injury and saw another malady limit him previously as a free agent.

The move comes four days after Baltimore lost starting cornerback Tavon Young to a season-ending torn ACL.

A slot cornerback by trade who fared well for the Eagles and Steelers in the past, Boykin spent the 2016 season on the Bears' injured reserve list with a torn pectoral muscle sustained during the preseason.

Boykin has 131 tackles (116 solo), eight interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 37 passes defensed, two sacks, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Back in 2013, he led the Eagles with six interceptions as a second-year pro.

The Steelers chose not to re-sign Boykin after the 2015 season was over and during that time their rumors that he was dealing with some sort of degenerative hip injury long after he had signed a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers in March of 2016.

Arrington, 30, has not appeared in a game since the 2015 season.

Arrington's release is a result of a failed physical according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

Arrington's release, meanwhile, ends his disappointing tenure in Baltimore and creates $2.1 million in salary cap space.

Before signing Boykin and Shabazz to ease Young's departure, coach John Harbaugh has praised the group's depth and experience during offseason training activities.
