Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth was elected as the new president of the NFL Players Association, the union announced. Foxworth replaces Kevin Mawae, who retired following the 2009 season. "One of the most important things I learned from Kevin is about responsibility," Foxworth said. "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." Foxworth, who played in two games last season, had his contract with the Ravens terminated after he failed a physical in March.
