Three years ago, the Ravens signed Domonique Foxworth, a Maryland native, to one of the most lucrative free-agent contracts in team history. But an injury never gave Foxworth an opportunity to live up to the deal, and Monday, the Ravens terminated the veteran cornerback's contract. Foxworth, who hails from Randallstown and starred at Maryland, played in just two games for the Ravens the past two seasons after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a noncontact drill on the first day of training camp in 2010.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is among a group of football players who have put their names and jersey numbers on a T-shirt line that celebrates LGBT Pride Month. The NFL Players' Association has launched a One Team Pride Shirts T-shirt line meant to raise awareness for equality. Proceeds from the shirts (which are being sold on the NFLPA's official online store ) benefit Athlete Ally, a nonprofit seeking to promote inclusion and tolerance in sports. While Suggs has voiced his openness to an openly gay teammate , he has been far from the Ravens' most vocal player on the issue of LGBT rights.

Sportswriters inevitably get the question: How do you cover teams you once loved as a fan? The standard answer is that you stop rooting for the jersey and start rooting for the best story. That's true to a point but incomplete. It's near impossible to cover a team and not become fascinated with some of the individual personalities. You don't exactly root for them, but you are drawn to them. And that brings me to Ed Reed and his departure from Baltimore after 11 mesmerizing, mystical, confounding and deeply entertaining seasons.

When ESPN's cameras broadcast NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA head honcho DeMaurice Smith -- who were flanked by a group of players and owners that included Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth -- as they held a press conference that officially declared the end of the lockout, I grabbed my voice recorder and held it up to the television in case Foxworth said something of note for our serious Ravens reporters. Instead, Foxworth gave reporters a silly sound bite that only made sense for this blog.

As a youngster playing in the Randallstown recreation leagues, Western Tech's Domonique Foxworth often carried around a snapshot of himself - taken when he was 7 - striking the Heisman pose. "He'd say to me, `Daddy, I'm going to win the Heisman one day,' " said Lorinzo Foxworth, 43. Karen Foxworth, 42, said her son still has a tiny, stuffed football, one he often tucked under his pillow when he slept - "and still does today," Lorinzo Foxworth said. "Domonique had dreams of what he wanted to do, and he would always go after them," his mother said.

COLLEGE PARK -- What do you want to talk about? Football? Maryland's chances at a fourth straight 10-win season? Sure, Domonique Foxworth can do that. He can tell you anything you need to know about the 2004 Terps, about what it's like to be an all-conference cornerback, about how it feels to be a leader on a team that's finally getting some national respect. He's happy to give you his take on Maryland's quarterback competition, and if asked, he'll even (reluctantly) talk about conference expansion.

His parents, his girlfriend and his teammates all say the same thing about Domonique Foxworth. The Ravens cornerback might look like a 26-year-old, he might run like a 26-year-old, but he thinks and conducts his life like a 40-year-old - always has. n His parents considered him more responsible than his brother, who is two years older. His NFL mentor, Champ Bailey, considered him the levelheaded one in their relationship. Whether the subject is President Barack Obama, the role of a black athlete in modern society or the NFL players union's treatment of retired players, Foxworth can deliver a well-crafted opinion.

Linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo wasn't the only athlete stunned by a letter from a Maryland politician urging the Ravens to silence the outspoken Ayanbadejo due to his support for same-sex marriage. In an open response to the letter written by Maryland Del. Emmett C. Burns Jr., a Democrat from Baltimore County, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe wrote that he was "ashamed and disgusted" by Burns' views and characterized the delegate as "mind-bogglingly stupid. " In an expletive-laden letter posted on sports blog Deadspin , Kluwe - who has been similarly vocal to Ayanbadejo as a proponent for gay marriage - took particular issue with Burns' assertion that political views have "no place in a sport.

The Ravens linebacker has used his platform to voice his support for same-sex marriage. “I don't know if I can come up with a strong enough word, but his request was asinine,” Foxworth said.

Former Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth, who played an important role in the negotiations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and the end of the NFL lockout last year, was elected as the president of the NFL Players Association during the union's Board of Player Representatives meeting today. Foxworth, a former standout at Western Tech and Maryland, had his contract terminated by the Ravens on March 5. He played in just two games for the Ravens the past two seasons after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a non-contact drill on the first day of training camp in 2010.

Defensive backs are scheduled to meet with teams and reporters today, which should serve as a reminder to the significant improvements the organization has made at the cornerback spot in a year's span. Last year at the NFL Scouting Combine, one of the Ravens' biggest needs was a cornerback and they wound up using two of their first five picks in the draft to address it, selecting Jimmy Smith (Colorado) in the first round and Chykie Brown (Texas) in the fifth. This year, the cornerback position is barely on the Ravens' radar. Now, I'm not saying that the Ravens won't use a mid-to-late-round pick on one because you can never have enough corners these days in the NFL. But I am saying that the Ravens consider the position one of their chief strengths going forward and feel no urgency to upgrade it, just like at quarterback and tight end. That's because Lardarius Webb, a third-round pick out of Nicholls State in 2009, is emerging as a legitimate shutdown corner at the age of 26. Webb is a restricted free agent and the Ravens are expected to put a first-round tender on him. But what they'd really like to do is sign him to a long-term contract extension.

The sinking feeling surfaced in the stomachs of many Ravens as Billy Cundiff's field goal attempt hooked wide of the left upright Jan. 22. But for cornerback Domonique Foxworth, the heartache began back in September, months before the team's 23-20 loss in the AFC championship game. "My heart's been broken all season," Foxworth, carefully choosing his first words, said last Monday. The Ravens placed the Randallstown native on injured reserve Sept. 28, his season ended by a right knee injury for a second season in a row. On the first day of training camp in 2010, Foxworth tore his anterior cruciate ligament in a non-contact drill.

As the Ravens began their second passing camp Monday, cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb both received encouraging news on their recoveries from season-ending knee surgeries. Washington expects to be ready for training camp after seeing his surgeon Monday, and Webb is "on schedule" to return, the cornerbacks tweeted Monday. Both saw Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. "Dr. [James] Andrews told me I was doing great," Washington said in a tweet. Washington was lost for the remainder of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after the Ravens' 17-15 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 22. Webb then tore the ACL in his right knee a month later in a 31-7 rout of the Chicago Bears.

POSITION: Cornerback. The Ravens have rotated starters throughout the preseason, but Cary Williams and rookie first-round pick Jimmy Smith have been the most impressive. Domonique Foxworth has struggled since coming back from major knee surgery, and Chris Carr has been limited in training camp with a hamstring injury. VETERAN: Tight end Kris Wilson. The eight-year journeyman has become the favorite to be the top backup behind Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta. He is tied for the Ravens lead with seven catches, and his 83 yards receiving tops all of the team's tight ends.

1. Chuck Pagano's done such a nice job this year, it might be hard to keep him in Baltimore in 2012. But if the Ravens make a deep run in the playoffs, he's going to be a hot candidate for a number of head coaching positions. And he deserves to be. Before we talk about Pagano, a quick word about Greg Mattison. I stuck up for Mattison more than most during his three years as the Ravens defensive coordinator. For a long time, I thought Ravens fans blamed him unfairly for a ton of personnel gaffes.
