Javier E. Arenas (born October 28, 1987) is an American football cornerback and return specialist for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL). Arenas played college football for the University of Alabama, earned consensus All-American honors, and was a member of a BCS National Championship team. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Arizona Cardinals.
Arenas attended the University of Alabama, where he played for coaches Mike Shula and Nick Saban from 2006 to 2009. On November 21, 2009, Javier broke Derek Abney's Southeastern Conference (SEC) record for career punt return touchdowns by returning his seventh punt return for a touchdown against the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Following his senior season, he was a first-team All-SEC selection and was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American. The 2009 Crimson Tide completed an undefeated 14–0 season, beat the Florida Gators 32–13 to win the 2009 SEC Championship Game, and then defeated the Texas Longhorns 37–21 to win the 2010 BCS National Championship.
Arenas left Alabama with 1,752 punt return yards and 2,166 kickoff return yards, both school records, along with his career average of 14 yards per punt return.
Kansas City Chiefs
Arenas scored his first career offensive touchdown on October 23, 2011, against the Oakland Raiders. Arenas finshed the 2011 season with 2 interceptions, 33 tackles, and 1 sack. He also recovered a fumble in the Chiefs/Steelers game.
For the 2012 season, Arenas tallied 53 solo tackles and 1 forced fumble in 16 games played. He also logged 204 yards in kickoff returns and 297 yards in punt returns on special teams.
He is the cousin of All-Star point guard Gilbert Arenas. Like Gilbert, his paternal grandfather is of Cuban descent. His brother, Armando Murillo, was a Golden Helmet winner at Robinson High School in Tampa, and started at defensive back for the University of Nebraska in 2007 and 2008.
