Foxworth plans to retire

Foxworth departs after a day of player representative meetings at the National Football League Players Association headquarters in Washington Reuters

New NFLPA president Domonique Foxworth won’t be the NFLPA president for more than one term.

Foxworth tells DBLCoverage.com, a UK-based NFL site, that he’s likely done.

“I think that I’ve probably made the decision that I’m going to move forward and stop playing football,” Foxworth said, adding that he recently underwent hip surgery.

The former Bronco, Falcon, and Raven added that he is applying to business schools, and that he intends to be a student, not a player, during his time as NFLPA president.  The Ravens released Foxworth earlier this year.  He played sparingly in 2011 after suffering a torn ACL during training camp in 2010.

Regarded as a rising star within the NFLPA, don’t be surprised if Foxworth lands a full-time job with the union after completing his education.  He won’t be eligible for a second term as NFLPA president in 2014, given that he won’t have played since 2011.

    Business school sounds like something DeMaurice Smith could use.

    Wow, NFLPA president and he never graduated? What does that say about the players? They dont care about education, and they dont respect it.

    There had to have been many candidates for NFLPA president who actually graduated college who were passed over for the position.

    Sure, with the money he’s going to make now, he might as well retire.

    @marvsleezy

    where does it say anywhere that he didn’t graduate? Yes, he’s applying to business schools – ever heard of a post-graduate course?

    I think he means he’s pursuing a graduate degree.

    De Smith has a JD and years experience as a federal attorney, why would he need an MBA? LMAO

    @marvsleezy – business school implies graduate school for his MBA (aka he has an undergrad degrees).

    @marvcook! Thank you for explaining to Mr. Wright that he is a “Moron”. Foxworth graduated with honors from the University of Maryland in 3 1/2 years and picked up a second degree while he was finishing his senior football season.

    @marvsleezy – he graduated from UMD on time with a BS in American Studies. When you hear the term “business school,” that means graduate school to study business-specific topics. When you meet someone who has an “MBA,” that stands for a “Masters in Business Administration” and means that particular individual attended “business school” after they received an “undergraduate degree.” “Undergraduate” refers to the 3-5 years of study it takes after graduating from “high school” to achieve what is referred to as a “bachelors” degree. This degree is a pre-requisite to attending graduate school. “Pre-requisite” means that the activity or credential in question must be received “before” the subsequent set of activities can be completed or, in some cases started. If there are any other terminology definitions you would like before passing judgment on an entire group of individuals, please don’t hesitate to ask. Cheers!

    @marvsleezy

    Your complete lack of both reading comprehension and general knowledge of our higher education system makes me LOL. First, you said, “the players don’t care about education and don’t respect it.” Then you said, “There had to have been many candidates for NFLPA president who actually graduated college who were passed over for the position.” So… which is it? Players don’t care about education or there are many that graduated?

    @marvsleezy..
    Don’t answer above question it’s a trick, lets stop while you’re ahead.

    Foxworth is one of the most intelligent players to come into the league recently. I’m not sure what that guy is talking about. He was taking online classes from HARVARD when he was an undergraduate while he was at MD.

    Forget NFLPA president, in a few years he might be the executive director (meaning Smith finally gets his behind run of town).

    Good Luck Foxworth, I enjoyed watching you play as a terp and as a Raven, sorry injury cut your football career short. we will never forget the roll you played in the new CBA.

    Marvsleezy is a fool

    Not defending marv’s easy (with gay guys), but the word is “role” not “roll”.

    Respect that he’s from Maryland and played for the ravens. He was a bust cuz of injuries

  17. bmcderm53 says: May 18, 2012 1:15 PM

    I would not declare him a bust. That comment is ridiculous. Must be a PacMan Jones supporter and graduate of WVU.

    Fox-worthless was exactly that for the Ravens……adios loser!
