RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Arrington will likely go into 2013 as New England's primary slot specialist at corner, but overall he's a valuable asset for the team, especially with fellow CB Alfonzo Dennard dealing with some off-field issues. Arrington racked up 74 tackles last season, but his IDP utility took a big hit as he went without a picking after intercepting seven passes in 2011.
Devin McCourty generally gets the most press when it comes to New England's corners, but Arrington was arguably the better player in 2011. He broke out in a big way as an IDP, finishing with 88 tackles (66 solo) while intercepting seven passes and defending 15. He posted those numbers despite starting only 14 games, too. As an almost certain 16-game starter for New England in 2012, Arrington might be able to make a push for 90 tackles, though it is not generally realistic to hope for another seven interceptions.
Will try to stick as a depth guy at cornerback.
