Former Bronco Foxworth Thinking Retirement

Former Denver Broncos cornerback Domonique Foxworth is the NFLPA president, but it won’t be that way for long.

Foxworth was released by the Baltimore Ravens this year and he said that he recently had hip surgery.

“I think that I’ve probably made the decision that I’m going to move forward and stop playing football.” – Foxworth to Double Coverage  

Foxworth was drafted out of Maryland in the third round of the 2005 draft by the Broncos. In his 6 year NFL career, he has 267 tackles, 8 interceptions, and 3 forced fumbles. More than anything, however, he is a born-leader. That’s why he was appointed president of the NFLPA.

As Foxworth finishes out his term, he will be applying to business schools. Once he’s done with his education, he will likely be able to get a full-time job with the union.

It goes to show that many players are concerned with life after football, both from a health standpoint and from a financial standpoint.

Best of luck to Foxworth in his future endeavors.
