Former Baltimore Raven, Maryland Terrapin and Randallstown native, Domonique Foxworth is calling it quits, ending a 7 year NFL playing career.

In an article with United Kingdom based website Double Coverage and brought stateside by The Sun’s Matt Vensel, Foxworth said, “I think that I’ve probably made the decision that I’m going to move forward and stop playing football.”

Originally drafted in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos, Foxworth’s three seasons with the Ravens were ravaged by injuries. After tearing his ACL in the beginning of training camp in 2010, the fleet-footed corner was barely an asset to the team’s secondary in 2011 after rehabbing his knee. Recently Foxworth revealed that he underwent hip surgery. Clearly the game’s violence took its toll on his 5’11’, 180 pound frame.

Fortunately for Foxworth, he had one more interception up his sleeve when he picked off a job with the NFLPA and was unanimously voted as the president in March. Foxworth was instrumental during the lockout and is a big reason no games were lost last season as the league and the players association battled in court.

For the Ravens and their fans, it was great to have a hometown guy suit up each Sunday. The secondary struggles in 2010 are a testament to his value when he was healthy. However the Ravens are now on solid footing in their defensive backfield as some of their younger players are shaping into elite corners.

Lardarius Webb’s and Cary Williams’ successes have made the pain of losing Foxworth a few seasons ago an afterthought. The team has clearly moved on.

And as Foxworth too moves on, we wish him a very successful post-NFL career where his talents will now affect almost 1,700 players as opposed to the 52 teammates he answered to in Baltimore.

Happy retirement Domonique!
