Bio

Kyle Arrington spent the last five NFL seasons in New England after one year in Tampa Bay, where he saw very limited playing time. Arrington has quickly developed from an untested, undrafted free agent into a reliable, solid cornerback, starting 52 games over the past four seasons and collecting nine interceptions.

Early Years & College

Arrington was born in Accokeek, Maryland, on Aug. 12, 1986. Arrington played basketball and track and field at Gwynn Park High School, but he really excelled on the football field as a defensive back. After graduating, he went to Hofstra University, leaving two years before they cut the football program, and slowly earned a reputation as a hard worker an fast learner.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Arrington was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 before landing on Tampa Bay’s practice squad. He played in the team’s 2009 season opener, but the Buccaneers waived him the following day.

New England Patriots

Arrington, a strong, physical corner (listed at 5-foot-10, 190 lbs.), has risen quickly up the depth chart in New England, jumping from practice squad body to the 53-man roster in less than a year. Arrington took over the starting cornerback job after Week 2 in 2010 and has been a big-time presence ever since, whether in a nickel or starting role. Arrington’s breakout season was 2011, when he sniped seven balls for 92 yards. He also has three career fumble recoveries to go along with nine interceptions.
