"It sucks if they don't resign them, I’m going to miss those guys, but fortunately they’re going to release them before free agency and you can add their names to this free agency bonanza that’s going on."
Foxworth said the above quote on BaltimoreRavens.com, according to a story posted on ProFootballTalk.com. Domonique realizes that this is a business as much if not more than almost anyone else. He is on the Executive Committee of the NFLPA and was intensely involved in the negotiations on a new CBA and reportedly, along with the Indianapolis Colts' Jeff Saturday, did not miss a single bargaining session.
With all of the four players cut by the Ravens that Foxworth was referring to (Derrick Mason, Todd Heap, Kelly Gregg, Willis McGahee), all are on the wrong side of 30 years old, with the exception of McGahee, who is 29 years old. At this stage in their careers, the best thing they could do would be to re-sign with the team, if the team is even interested in bringing them back. They would all be taking significant pay cuts, but could find that their services are not worth much more than that in backup roles on other teams through the open market.
