    Kyle Arrington to have off-season surgery

    http://espn.go.com/boston/nfl/story/_/id/10410404/kyle-arrington-new-england-patriots-groin-surgery

    New England Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington is scheduled to undergo groin surgery on Friday, addressing an injury he played through for most of the 2013 season.

    The timeframe for his recovery, according to his agent Richard Kopelman of KLASS Sports, is in the 6-to-8-week range, which should have Arrington ready for the start of the team's offseason program in April.

    The 27-year-old Arrington played in all 16 games, with 12 starts, this past season. His primary role has been as the team's No. 3 cornerback, but because of the high percentage of sub defense played by the team (67 percent), he is often on the field in a starter-type capacity.

    He played 72 percent of the defensive snaps in 2013.

    Arrington's availability is one of his strengths, as he's never missed a game since joining the Patriots in 2009. He is viewed as a key part of the team's cornerback corps in the coming years, along with Logan Ryan (second year) and Alfonzo Dennard (third year), and potentially free-agent-to-be Aqib Talib

    not surprising groin bothered him all year.

    still played pretty bad at times.

    a bad groin doesnt affect the ability to turn and locate the ball which he never does sadly

    why didnt he or BB bench him then. why hurt your team because you cant play 100% and effective? thats what bothered me, Logan ryan came on strong yet still the injured Arrington was playing over him at times

    Oh my. He was outstanding in the slot early on until tearing it vs TB, where he pulled himself off at the end. I tried to warn at the time.

    Do you people even watch these games?  It's like when someone is hurt, you ignore it.  if playing through an injury does not have an effect?  I can always tell who played sports here and who didn't.

    His main positives are tackling, slot/box work and taking away slot WRs, while being durable.

    Unfortunately, this is the first time I can ever remember the latter being an issue for him. He's usually very durable.

    Gotta get him back healthy for 2014 to play that strong STAR role he is so good at.

    should've benched himself. we had logan ryan.

    his injured play hurt the team

    Jesus.  It gets so old watching people scour and whine for anything on the D and then it' the same people who are the first to say Brady had a ligament train in his throwing hand when he has a sucky game or a sucky title game again.

    Can't have it both ways.

     



    Kannoris Davis... PS, FA anyone anyone.

    ok i can excuse his getting beat but that does not make up for not having any ball instincts whatsoever.

    I vividly remember the Miami in MIA when Mike Wallace beat him deep and Tannenhill underthrew it by a mile and it hit Arrington on his back as Wallace came back to it. He was celebrating like he actually accomplished something. He was beat and got lucky.

    he just doesnt ever turn and locate the ball which bothers me. another prime example the Manning DUCK to Welkie in the AFCCG and Arrington did a solid 720 and let him convert.

    if he can somehow develop that instinct or start trying to play the ball because it would make him alot better, injured or not

    Can I suggest neck surgery ...maybe with that he could occasionally turn his head and locate the ball thrown his way

    Did I not say he's not a good perimeter CB? Ellis Hobbs was the same way.  Some guys just aren't good at it.

    Fact is, you have to have a slot CB in this league that can play and we have one. I am good with knowing that.

    [/QUOTE]

    I understand you. i know he can be good in the slot but you're ignoring the fact that he has absolutely no ball skills in the slot or not

    Dude, you don't lead the NFL in INTs and not have ball skills. Stop.

     

     



    what player did you watch this year?  ball instincts and catching ability are two different things

     

    and yep he did lead the league in INTs with 7.

    the other 48 games ? 2 INTs...  maybe the 7 INTs fell into his hands, right place, right time sometimes.

    Tavon Wilson had four picks last year, barely touched the field this year

    Thanks for the attention!  I laugh every time I see you post something about me.  Kind of creepy that I am in your head so much, you must really be a mental midget. 

    I like how you used to do this to Babe and now me.  Very flattering.. Thanks!!

    Arrington played bad most the year, what coach on earth would keep putting an injured slot CB out wide?  Makes no sense. Strange.  Anywhoooo.. hope surgery goes well and he can come back and have a much better 2014.

    Some truth to that. But better is to have CBs who can play both. The slot reciver role is evolving. A lot of outside receivers are now lining up from the slot. The D is at huge disadvantage when a slot specialist is on those receivers.

    http://nfl.si.com/2013/12/03/all-22-slot-recievers-brandon-marshall-jordy-nelson/

    In addition, I expect that Amaro will bring another innovation to the slot position. He's labeled a TE because he has Gronk's body, but he almost never played inline. 80% of the time, he played from the slot. Almost all of the remaining 20% he played outside. That's a different kind of slot receiver that you don't see much in the NFL. How do you think Arrington matches up with that?

    Has he had this injury his whole career? Because he's sucked his whole life.

    I think Arrington is a good and occasionally quite good slot corner.  He also is good in zone coverage.  His major shortcoming is when he is manned up on the outside.  That he had a groin injury all season is not insignificant despite what some may say. 

    Is he an all-pro?  Of course not.  His ball skills have shown flashes of brilliance at times and at other times seem to disappear. For example, in 2011 he had 7 picks, the rest of his 6 year career he had a total of 2.

    This is the problem, he does it within series! How many games now have we seen Arrington make a great play and people pound their chest saying "see that's why he's worth...." and before they can get it out the very next play he gets turned around and gives up 20yrds on a play? It happened frequently all year. In money situations he's ok and I'd like to have him on the team as a 4th CB (lets face it that's what he is) but he's getting paid like a #2 CB. How can everyone cry that BB finds value and never over extends himself after he signed Arrington to that silly contract?

    Do you think the inconsistency issue with respect to his playmaking this past year could be related to his groin injury?
