In correspondence with the signing of cornerback Brandon Boykin, the Ravens have released cornerback Kyle Arrington according to the team’s official Twitter account.

Arrington’s release is a result of a failed physical according to the Baltimore Sun’s Jeff Zrebiec. Arrington has not participated in OTA’s thus far this offseason. According to Garrett Downing of the Ravens’ official website, it is unclear whether or not Arrington will retire following his release.

According to Spotrac, the move will free $2.1 million in cap room for the Ravens, doubling what the Ravens before Arrington’s release. In total, the Ravens now have $4.2 million in cap space.

It is possible that this move was made in order to have room to make a run at free agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, but as of now, that is purely speculation.

The contract details of Boykin and fellow cornerback signee Al-Hajj Shabazz are unknown at the moment, but they both more than likely will be small deals that have a limited impact on the cap space.
