Ex-Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington didn’t take long to find employment.
Two days after being released by New England, Arrington agreed in principle on a three-year contract with the Ravens, the club announced Wednesday evening.
The 28-year-old Arrington strengthens the Ravens’ depth at cornerback, which was stretched to its limits a season ago because of injuries. With Arrington joining Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb and Asa Jackson, Baltimore will have a solid quartet at a vital position.
A seventh-year pro from Hofstra, Arrington (5-10, 190) has recorded 352 tackles, 48 passes defended and nine interceptions. He has made 56 career starts, all with New England.
Throughout G.M. Ozzie Newsome’s tenure, the Ravens have had a good eye for recently released veteran talent, with Steve Smith, Elvis Dumervil, Jacoby Jones, Samari Rolle and Derrick Mason among the cuts who have found success in Baltimore.
