Scouts Inc. on Domonique Foxworth

The Baltimore Ravens are hurting at cornerback. But fortunately their No. 1 corner, Domonique Foxworth, is healthy and ready to go for next season.

FoxworthFoxworthLast year Foxworth signed a four-year, $28 million contract with Baltimore but didn't quite live up to the billing with an up-and-down season.

So what's in store for Foxworth in 2010? This week, the AFC North blog caught up with Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. to find out.

  • "I wasn't a huge fan of his, but I think he’s good enough. Foxworth had two or three down games last season from what I saw. I wouldn’t say there were any games where he was tremendous. But you can win with him with the scheme they have and the front-seven players they have. The Ravens are always great against the run and are going to put people in third-and-long. He's a starter in this league, but not special or anyone you would fear to throw against at anytime. One thing you have to remember about this secondary, too, is if you have [safety] Ed Reed in centerfield you can certainly be a lot more aggressive with your coverage techniques with your corners. Reed makes a lot of errors and problems go away. So in this scheme, similar to Pittsburgh's, I think you can get away with average corners. Because you're always going to bring pressure, you're always going to be good against the run, and you got a stud at safety."
