Brandon Boykin Signs with Ravens After 1 Year with Bears

Ravens sign two former Steelers to shore up ailing secondary

Boykin spent all of last season on injured reserve with a pectoral injury.

Baltimore also lost slot corner Tavon Young for the season when he tore his ACL last week during OTAs.

When healthy, the 26-year-old cornerback was a consistent contributor for the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Boykin has 131 tackles (116 solo), eight interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 37 passes defensed, two sacks, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Boykin was a fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 2012 and showed a lot of promise, starting four games at cornerback as a rookie. He last played for the Steelers in 2015.

Terminating Arrington's contract frees up approximately $2.1 million in cap space.

When the New England Patriots released Arrington in 2015, Baltimore signed him to a three-year, $7 million deal.

The team released cornerback Kyle Arrington, who missed all of last season with a concussion, in order to make room on the roster.

Arrington's release is a result of a failed physical according to the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec. The 6-2, 200-pounder has appeared in eight National Football League games with the Steelers (seven in 2016) and Houston Texans (one in 2016), recording one tackle.

The Ravens cut Shareece Wright, Kendrick Lewis and Lardarius Webb - who later re-signed - and didn't re-sign free agents Matt Elam, Chris Lewis-Harris and Jerraud Powers.
