Kyle Arrington drawing interest outside New England


The New England Patriots cannot neglect their pass defense any longer and are looking to bolster their secondary via a cornerback or two.

According to Tom Curran of CSN New England, Kyle Arrington, slated to hit free agency Tuesday, "was contacted by four teams as of Sunday evening."

Curran did not specify which teams, and corner is an in-demand but deep free agent position.

While he's fielding calls from multiple teams, Arrington would like to stay in Foxborough if the Patriots will have him.

“I started something four years ago in New England I think both sides would definitely love to see through,” Arrington told the Boston Herald Saturday. “I definitely want everything to work out, but I understand the business side of it.”

Aqib Talib is set to hit the open market, and Alfonzo Dennard will be sentenced April 11 for his conviction of assault on a police officer last year.
