Kyle Chandler Arrington Sr. (born August 12, 1986) is a former American football cornerback. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Hofstra. Arrington has also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens.
Arrington was born in Accokeek, Maryland. He attended Gwynn Park High School in Prince George's County, Maryland, 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. He also played soccer in his years before college football.
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.
Arrington went undrafted in the 2008 NFL Draft. On April 28, 2008, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Arrington to a three-year, $1.16 million contract that includes a $10,000 signing bonus.
Throughout training camp, Arrington competed for a job as a backup cornerback and special teams player against Joselio Hanson, Nick Graham, and Therrian Fontenot. He played in all four preseason games and recorded 14 combined tackles (nine solo). On August 30, 2008, the Philadelphia Eagles waived Arrington. After clearing waivers he was re-signed to the Eagles' practice squad a day later. On September 10, 2008, the Philadelphia Eagles released Arrington.
On September 17, 2008, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Arrington to their practice squad where he spent the remainder of the season.
On January 8, 2009, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed Arrington to a reserve futures contract. During training camp, Arrington competed for a job as a backup cornerback against Elbert Mack, Torrie Cox, and E. J. Biggers. On September 5, 2009, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived Arrington and signed him to their practice squad the following day. On September 11, 2009, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers promoted Arrington to the active roster. He was waived by the team the next day.
On September 22, 2009, the New England Patriots signed Arrington to their practice squad. On November 8, 2009, the New England Patriots promoted him to their active roster after Cleveland Browns' head coach Eric Mangini made an attempt to sign Arrington to his roster.
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 seven interceptions for the 2011 season.
At the end of the 2011 season, Arrington and the Patriots appeared in Super Bowl XLVI. He started in the game, but the Patriots lost to the New York Giants by a score of 21–17.
In 2013, Arrington signed with the Patriots after agreeing in principle on a four-year deal.
In 2014, Arrington did not record an interception, but scored two touchdowns on special teams, returning a fumbled kickoff return 9 yards against Cincinnati and a blocked field goal 62 yards against Miami. Arrington earned a Super Bowl ring as the Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in Super Bowl XLIX. During that game, Arrington was benched and replaced by eventual Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler.
On May 11, 2015, Arrington was released by the Patriots.
