Ravens sign cornerbacks Brandon Boykin and Al-Hajj Shabazz, release Kyle Arrington

06 June 2017

According to Garrett Downing of the Ravens' official website, it is unclear whether or not Arrington will retire following his release.

The Ravens have signed journeyman cornerback Brandon Boykin.

Boykin, 26, was a fourth-round draft pick (123rd overall) of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012 and has played four National Football League seasons.

After dealing with injuries in the secondary most of last season, the Ravens wasted little time finding free agents to bolster the unit after cornerback Tavon Young tore his ACL last week. He appeared in 64 games with seven starts for the Philadelphia Eagles (2012-14) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2015).

Watson said forming the minority government was "the right thing to do" and she could not imagine going back to an election. At today's media conference, Clark characterized her party's negotiations with the Greens as "unsuccessful".

Boykin has 8 career interceptions and picked off 6 passes during the 2013 season with the Eagles. Boykin signed with the Panthers but was cut after the draft, and the Cowboys and Falcons passed on him after visits before the Bears agreed to sign him in July. In seven games for the Steelers he recorded one tackle. He originally signed a three-year, $7 million contract in 2015.

Arrington, 30, suffered a concussion during the preseason last August and spent the season on Injured Reserve. He was released with a failed physical designation. The move frees up approximately $2.1 million in cap space.

These moves come in an offseason in which the Ravens had already added two cornerbacks.
