Veteran Kyle Arrington was released to keep the roster at 90 players. While he would go on to play in all 16 regular season games for the Steelers during the 2015 regular season, Boykin didn't start seeing the field regularly on defense until late in the year.

The roster moves came four days after the Ravens lost Tavon Young to a torn ACL.

Boykin, who was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Georgia, was traded to the Steelers in exchange for a 2016 draft pick on August 1, 2015. Back in 2013, he led the Eagles with six interceptions as a second-year pro. The 2015 undrafted free agent from West Chester (Pa.) has played eight games and recorded one tackle. After struggling with injuries for over a year, the cornerback reached an agreement to sign with the Ravens, per a team announcement.

Chiefs release WR Maclin after two seasons
Maclin is just another high-profile skilled position player that has been cut by Kansas City since the end of the regular season. The Chiefs now have $3,511,734 in cap space for 2017, according to the current NFLPA salary cap report.

After he agreed to a pay cut, Arrington suffered a concussion against the Carolina Panthers in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve. His release opens up $2.1 million in salary cap space.

The team released Arrington Monday with a "failed physical designation". 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. Boykin could compete for a spot behind Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr on Baltimore's depth chart.
