According to Kevin Fishbain of ProFootballWeekly.com, cornerback Kyle Arringon has really surprised the Patriots this year, since he came into the preseason and won a starting job for the third straight season. The thought was that Ras-I-Dowling would beat him out.
“Kyle, he’s put together well now. He’s 195 pounds or whatever it may be,”said Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio. “I mean he’s maybe a bit short (listed at 5-foot-10) but he’s strong, he’s got good playing speed; very mentally tough.
“There’s a guy that’s really improved from the time that he started here. … He’s put in a lot of work and it’s really a credit to him and the coaching staff that he’s been able to make himself into a pretty good player.”
The Patriots’ cornerbacks really struggled last season. They need their guys to step up this season.
