Former Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth has been elected NFL Players Association president, according to the Sports Journal business.

Foxworth, 28, is perfect for this role because he is smart and candid. He’s a strong leader and his presence and role in the negotiations during last year’s lockout is a big reason why the NFL played a full season last year.

Foxworth, who was cut by the Ravens this offseason, is expected to retire. He has only played in two games in the past two seasons because of a torn ACL he suffered on the eve of training camp in 2010.

He replaces Kevin Mawae, who had held the position since 2008.
