Ravens sign two former Steelers to shore up ailing secondary

Ravens sign two former Steelers to shore up ailing secondary

Nonetheless, when the Baltimore Ravens lost second year cornerback Tavon Young with a torn ACL, they had to try and find some warm bodies to fill the void.

Boykin, one of the more controversial players to enter Pittsburgh in the Mike Tomlin era, spent only one year with the Steelers after a preseason trade with the Philadelphia Eagles brought Boyking to town. The Panthers, however, cut ties with Boykin roughly two months after they had signed him and he ultimately signed a one-year contract with the Bears in late July.

The 5-foot-9, 183-pound former fourth-round pick from Georgia missed all of last season after suffering a torn pectoral muscle during training camp with the Chicago Bears. He has played in 64 National Football League games with seven starts and has 131 tackles, 37 passes defensed, two sacks, five forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Acquired as a futures signing previous year, the former undrafted free agent started the season on the practice squad before being promoted to the active roster in October. Releasing Arrington will reportedly free up $2.1 million in cap room, according to Spotrac.

Arrington, 30, missed all of last season after being placed on injured reserve with a concussion, and he has not been at the team's OTA workouts this spring.

Shabazz played in one game with the Houston Texans last season before participating in six contests with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The team released Arrington Monday with a "failed physical designation". The Ravens could also look to veteran safety Lardarius Webb in that role.
