Former Denver CB respects Cutler's arm

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Domonique Foxworth says Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler "probably has the strongest arm in the entire league."

That used to be a source of pride for Foxworth, who was a third-round pick of the Broncos in 2005. Now, however, as the left cornerback of the Atlanta Falcons, Foxworth is not so thrilled with Cutler's big arm.

Foxworth was traded to Atlanta from Denver for a seventh-round pick in September. Foxworth is now a starting cornerback for the Falcons who host Cutler and the Broncos on Sunday.

"It is not nearly as exciting of a prospect now that I am on the other side of Jay," Foxworth said. "But I'm ready for it. I went against him all the time in practice and I look forward to the challenge."

Does Foxworth expect the Broncos to target him Sunday?

"Absolutely," he said. "They'll come after me but I'll be ready."

Foxworth said he is excited to face the Broncos who suddenly traded him. He was set to be the team's nickel cornerback. Foxworth said the trade was for the best for him. Foxworth, a free agent at the end of the season, wasn't going to get a chance to start in Denver.

The Broncos could use Foxworth these days. Left cornerback Champ Bailey has been out for three weeks with a groin injury and he will likely miss another game or two. Undrafted rookie Josh Bell and Karl Paymah could see time in Bailey's place against Atlanta.

Meanwhile, Denver just waived receiver Glenn Martinez to make room for running back Tatum bell who agreed to terms earlier Tuesday.
