The Patriots finally made a move on the defensive side of the ball, and it's a familiar face.

Kyle Arrington will be back with the Patriots.

Arrington tweeted, "Thankful and Blessed for another opportunity. Extremely grateful for all the support from the New England community and beyond. #Patsnation"

ESPN reports that the deal is for four years.

Arrington played all 16 games for the Patriots last season, making a combined 74 tackles (62 solo) and a forced fumble. Arrington had a NFL-leading seven interceptions in 2011.

In four seasons with the Patriots, Arrington has played in 56 games, making a combined 251 tackles, eight interceptions, and one forced fumble.

Arrington also plays on the special teams unit.
