The New England Patriots have released cornerback Kyle Arrington. The 28-year-old singed a four-year, $16 million contract with the Pats in 2013, and had two years left on his deal that included non-guaranteed salaries of $3 million in 2015 and $3.5 million in 2016.
CB Kyle Arrington was informed of his release this morning by the Patriots, per source. A reunion in the future has not been ruled out.

New England hasn’t ruled out the possibility of signing Arrington back at a lower salary.
Safe to say former #Patriots CB Kyle Arrington would welcome a chance to return to NE. It’s an option, but not at his $3M salary.

Arrington led the league with seven interceptions in 2011, totaling nine interceptions in 86 regular season games with the Pats.
New England has already lost Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, both opted for free agency earlier in the offseason. Revis signed with the New York Jets and Browner signed with the New Orleans Saints.
The Titans, Jaguars, Raiders, Jets, Bears, Falcons, Rams, Saints, and the Chargers could all be potential landings posts for Arrington.
