Patriots sign DB Arrington from practice squad
The New England Patriots have signed defensive back Kyle Arrington from their practice squad. Arrington was added to the 53-man roster on Sunday before the Patriots game with the Miami Dolphins. He originally was signed by Philadelphia as a rookie free agent out of Hofstra and started the 2008 season on the Eagles practice squad. He spent most of that season on Tampa Bay's practice squad and played his first NFL game in this season's opener for the Buccaneers against the Dallas Cowboys. Tampa Bay waived him on Sept. 14 and New England signed him to its practice squad on Sept. 21. The Patriots had a roster opening when they released guard Kendall Simmons on Friday.
