Domonique Foxworth has created a foundation to serve teenage boys in Baltimore, taken kids from his own holiday party to a local bookstore, and helped raise funds to build a teen center in Denver. So it's no surprise that the Ravens cornerback was honored Monday morning as the first recipient of the Tim Wheatley Award. The Tim Wheatley Award, to be given annually, was created by the Baltimore Sun Media Group to honor a local athlete whose contributions off the field are as important as the ones on the field.

In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, NFL Players Association president Domonique Foxworth said Friday that he was disappointed in Maryland House of Delegates member Emmett C. Burns Jr., a Democrat from Baltimore County, who sent a letter to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti that urged him to silence Brendon Ayanbadejo . 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.

With the Imus-Rutgers controversy, the Duke lacrosse case and the NFL's verdict on two bad-behaving players, last week was particularly disheartening to fans who look to sports for justice, fairness and positive reinforcement of their values. "Hopefully," Domonique Foxworth said by phone from Denver late last week, "I can help." Foxworth - who grew up in Randallstown, played at Western Tech and Maryland, and now is a cornerback for the Broncos - already has helped. In the case of the NFL's lengthy suspensions of the Tennessee Titans' Adam "Pacman" Jones and Cincinnati Bengals' Chris Henry, Foxworth didn't help directly, but he came close.

Former Ravens cornerback and current NFLPA president Domonique Foxworth is “probably” going to retire. In a recent interview with a United Kingdom-based football website called DBLcoverage.com, the 29-year-old said, “I think that I've probably made the decision that I'm going to move forward and stop playing football.” Foxworth, who signed a four-year, $27.2 million contract with the Ravens in 2009, was cut by the team in March...

To a player who had been offered 13 full football scholarships, the University of Maryland's losing program was not particularly attractive. And when Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden was fired Nov. 19 after a 15-29 record over four seasons, Western Tech's Domonique Foxworth crossed the Terps off his wish list, saying he "didn't want to be a part of their transition period." By Saturday morning, however, the 6-foot, 175-pound All-Metro defensive back's change of heart was complete. Foxworth called new Terps coach Ralph Friedgen that day and orally accepted a full football scholarship.

COLLEGE PARK - For three quarters yesterday before a sellout crowd at Byrd Stadium, sophomore cornerback Domonique Foxworth and every other member of the Maryland Terrapins' secondary looked helpless in trying to stop North Carolina State quarterback Philip Rivers and wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery. But in the wake of Maryland's come-from-behind, 24-21 homecoming victory that put the Terps in sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Coast Conference, few players stood as tall as the 5-foot-11, 175-pound cornerback from Randallstown.

COLLEGE PARK - On a night when Maryland's seniors bade a memorable farewell to Byrd Stadium, an 18-year-old with zero college football experience played with the poise of the veterans. With Tony Okanlawon out for the third straight game with an unspecified illness and Dennard Wilson, his replacement, sidelined with a strained hamstring, the Terps dipped into their depth chart and started Domonique Foxworth at cornerback. A true freshman out of Baltimore County's Western Tech, Foxworth did not play in the Terps' first nine games and was on course for a redshirt season, but he didn't look like a rookie last night.

The makeover of the Ravens' secondary continued with vigor in the offseason, two years after the unit had become a sinkhole for a proud defense. With clockwork precision, the Ravens signed cornerbacks Domonique Foxworth and Chris Carr in March, then drafted Lardarius Webb in April with the expectation that he could make the transition from college safety to NFL corner. Combine those changes with roster turnover from 2008 and the Ravens' secondary has gone from a blinking yellow light to a four-way stop sign.

More than three-quarters of the way into a recent 45-minute conversation, Domonique Foxworth chuckled at having been thanked for staying on the phone that long on an evening after Denver Broncos practice. "I don't mind. It's a relief to talk that long about something besides football," he said. Foxworth can do that, because there's so much more to talk to him about than his being an NFL player. In fact, he recognizes - and embraces - the fact that his visibility as a pro athlete gets people to listen to him, and he puts that to good use every chance he gets.

Domonique Foxworth has played against Dwayne Bowe three times in the past two seasons and has a wealth of information on the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver. Foxworth, however, doesn't plan on relying on that information when Bowe and the Chiefs visit the Ravens on Sunday in the season opener for both teams at M&T Bank Stadium. "It's not more of an advantage than watching film," the cornerback said of his previous matchups with Bowe. "I think that's the best way to prepare, go into the game with no preconceived notions about an individual.

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.

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.

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.

The Ravens made a good move by putting cornerback Domonique Foxworth on injured reserve. The knee injury and surgery Foxworth suffered at the beginning of the 2010 season basically takes two years to heal. Some players can come back early, but that's with the aid of offseason minicamps and being able to work with members of the medical staff.   Foxworth and defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said Foxworth had made good progress in his recovery until the NFL owners lockout, and then he fell behind.

"The best way I can put it is that the feeling that you have after a bad game that might have cost your team the game, I feel that way every week, every time I walk in [the locker room]. Every now and then, guys will say, 'We miss you out there,' and I know they mean it in a good way, but it just feels like a turn of the knife. “Of course I want to be out there.” Those words were spoken by Domonique Foxworth 10 months ago. The Ravens cornerback, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament at the start of training camp in 2010, was in NFL injured reserve purgatory, rehabbing his injured right knee at the team's Owings Mills.

The Ravens just announced that they have placed cornerback Domonique Foxworth on season-ending injured reserve. To take his place on the roster, they will re-sign outside linebacker Prescott Burgess. Foxworth has been struggling to come back from knee surgery. He tore his right anterior cruciate ligament on the eve of training camp last year. After struggling against the Tennessee Titans in Week Two, Foxworth was inactive for the Ravens' 37-7 victory over the St. Louis Rams last Sunday.

The Ravens' suffocating defensive effort in their 34-3 pasting of the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium was highlighted by interceptions from a pair of unlikely sources. Cornerback Domonique Foxworth grabbed the fifth interception of his career, and linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo got his second as each picked off Cleveland quarterbacks on their opening drives of the first and second halves to snuff out any potential hope the Browns had for an upset. The interceptions led to touchdown runs by Willis McGahee and Ray Rice, respectively, paving the way to the Ravens' win. "It was huge to come back from the San Diego game and make some plays this week to get the monkey off your back," said free safety Ed Reed, who also had an interception.

Denver Broncos rookie Domonique Foxworth, formerly of Randallstown and the University of Maryland, has the perfect mental makeup for a cornerback - a quick mind blessed with a touch of amnesia. Described by Denver coach Mike Shanahan as "one of the sharpest rookies I've ever had on the team," Foxworth was in the unenviable position as the defender beaten by New York Giants receiver Amani Toomer for a late-game-winning touchdown on Oct. 23. But a week later, Foxworth was the guy who throttled a second-half comeback by the Philadelphia Eagles when he intercepted quarterback Donovan McNabb in the end zone, a play that re-ignited the Broncos to an easy win. "I'm sure everybody knows playing corner, you have to have a short memory," Foxworth said yesterday.

Cornerback Domonique Foxworth was placed on injured reserve, ending his season and leaving the Ravens with five healthy cornerbacks. Foxworth tore his ACL just before training camp last year, and the veteran admitted several times this season that he didn't yet feel completely comfortable with the surgically-repaired knee and his play had suffered as a result. After struggling in the Ravens' Week Two loss to the Tennessee Titans, Foxworth was inactive last Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

The image of cornerback Domonique Foxworth standing on the Ravens sideline at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis Sunday wasn't really much of a surprise as coach John Harbaugh had suggested a week ago that shelving the cornerback might help heal his surgically-repaired right knee. Foxworth was of the same mindset after the team's 37-7 rout of the Rams. “It hurts like hell,” he said. “I've been fighting through it, and I've been good enough not to hurt the team. But I think last week, the pain in my knee hurt me, and my lackluster performance hurt them.
