Most recently Shabazz was in Pittsburgh where he spent most of last season, though Shabazz also played in Houston last season.

The Baltimore Ravens lost slot cornerback Tavon Young for the season with a torn ACL last week, and they added more depth to their secondary Monday. Boykin signed with the Panthers but was cut after the draft, and the Cowboys and Falcons passed on him after visits before the Bears agreed to sign him in July. He missed last season after tearing a pectoral muscle in training camp with the Chicago Bears. In 2013, he set career highs with 43 tackles, six interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 16 passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

Arrington, 30, has not appeared in a game since the 2015 season. He signed a three-year deal with the Ravens in 2015 but was released Monday after failing a physical. The 6-2, 200-pounder has appeared in eight National Football League games with the Steelers (seven in 2016) and Houston Texans (one in 2016), recording one tackle.

She added that she is taking the image down from her social media accounts and will be asking the photographer to do the same. Hours later, Griffin attempted to clean up the damage by apologizing, saying she was wrong and went too far.

According to Spotrac, the move will free $2.1 million in cap room for the Ravens, doubling what the Ravens before Arrington's release.

Baltimore's other options to replace Young included Lardarius Webb, who switched from corner to safety last season; Maurice Canady, who has not played a defensive snap in the regular season; and Arrington.
