The Patriots will meet with Kyle Arrington's representatives this week at the combine to discuss a contract, according to sources.

If the intention is to bring him back under a very cheap contract to mostly play special teams and slot CB duties, it's fine... and I'm assuming that's the case.

I'm OK with this.

With (hopefully) Talib coming back, Dennard and Dowling, Arrington will never find himself on the outside again.

He's a very good SLOT CB and those are hard to come by.

Who knows if Talib and Dennard will play for the Patriots next season? i mean hopefully things work out for the best with Dennard, but who knows.

He was good in the slot last year.

I don't think Dennard will miss any time. I think he could complete any jail time in the off-season before TC.

Talib, I just hope its a foregone conclusion that he's back.

People love to hate on Arrington but he does very well when he's in the slot.

Hope we bring back Talib as well.

As long as he's paid a reasonable amount (ie. 1.5/year or less). I love me some Bill, but it seems like the Pats significantly overpay someone every offseason (cough, cough, TBC).

Good news. I'm guessing he'll end up around 2-2.5M AAV. Maybe something like 2/$4.5M or 3/$7M

They might be able to get him cheaper if he's willing to take a discount to stay in New England.

As a slot CB, cheap deal = good move. As an outside CB, any deal = bad move. That simple.

Personally, I'd sign him for short unguaranteed money and then drop him once the seaon starts. Yes, I am that hater on him. This guy straight up sucks on the outside and I do not want to see him out there when someone goes down.....which will definitely happen at some point.
