The NFLPA has announced that CB Domonique Foxworth has been unanimously elected President of the NFLPA by the Board of Player Representatives.
Foxworth will take the spot of outgoing President Kevin Mawae, who has served consecutive two-year terms.
In 2007, Foxworth was elected by the Broncos as a player representative. In 2008, he became the youngest vice-president of the NFLPA Executive Committee.
“One of the most important things I learned from (former NFLPA president) Kevin (Mawae) is about responsibility,” Foxworth, a free agent cornerback, said to the board following his election.
“Players like to say, ‘The NFLPA is our organization.’ There is a wealth of experience and talent in this room, and I will reach out to each and every one of you about your interests and passions. If we work as hard as we did during the lockout now in peacetime, we will be the strongest organization in the world.”
A 2005 third-round pick out of Maryland by the Broncos, Foxworth spent three seasons as a part-time starter with the Broncos before he was traded to the Falcons before the start of the 2008 season.
Foxworth started 10 games for the Broncos, totaling 38 tackles and an interception before signing a four-year, $27.2 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens the following off-season. Foxworth had a career-high four interceptions as a 16-game starter in 2009, but knee injuries have limited him to just two games over the last two seasons.
