Kyle Chandler Arrington[1] (born August 12, 1986) is an American football cornerback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Hofstra. Arrington also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Early years

Arrington was born in Accokeek, Maryland. He attended Gwynn Park High School, where he played football as a defensive back and kick returner, as well as basketball and track and field. He was a second-team all-county selection in football.

College career

After graduating from high school, Arrington attended Hofstra University beginning in 2004. As a freshman, he played in seven games, recording three tackles. He started seven of the ten games he played as a sophomore, picking up 21 tackles and one forced fumble. In 2006, he played in 11 games, recording 69 tackles and an interception. In 2007, he played in 11 games again, recording 53 tackles and an interception. Arrington is one of Hofstra's last football players to make in to the NFL, as the school cut its program in 2009 due to costs and declining interest.

Professional career

Philadelphia Eagles

Arrington was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent following the 2008 NFL Draft. He was waived by the Eagles on August 30 and re-signed to the team's practice squad a day later. He was released from the practice squad on September 10.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Arrington was signed to the practice squad of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 17, 2008, where he spent the remainder of the season before being re-signed to a future contract after the season. He was waived by the Buccaneers on September 5, 2009 during final cuts and re-signed to the team's practice squad the next day. He was elevated to the 53-man roster on September 10, playing in the Buccaneers' season opener. He was waived by the team the next day.

New England Patriots

He currently plays and starts for the New England Patriots. Arrington was added to the Patriots practice squad and ultimately promoted to their 53-man roster on November 8, 2009 after Cleveland Browns' head coach Eric Mangini made an attempt to sign Arrington to his roster.[2]

In 2010, Arrington earned the starting cornerback job after Week 2, and kept that role for the rest of the season. He finished that year with one interception, which he returned 36 yards for a touchdown against the Packers. Arrington also scored on a return of a blocked field goal against the Dolphins in Week 4.

In 2011, he began the season as the nickel corner, since cornerback Leigh Bodden had returned from the injured reserve list, but regained the starting role early in the season. He led the NFL with 7 interceptions for the 2011 season.

In 2013, Arrington will stay with the Patriots after agreeing in principle on a four-year deal.[3]
