OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens terminated veteran cornerback Domonique Foxworth's contract after he failed his physical today.

Foxworth was due a $5.6 million base salary and an $8.6 million salary-cap figure in the final year of his $27 million contract.

The former University of Maryland standout spent most of last season on injured reserve, appearing in two games before being shut down.

Foxworth is expected to continue to pursue a career with the players' union leadership. He's a member of the NFL Players Association executive committee.

In three seasons with Baltimore, Foxworth played in 18 games with 64 tackles, four inteceptions, 21 pass deflections and one fumble recovery.

Foxworth spent the entire 2010 season on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament that's still affecting him.

He tore up his knee in a non-contact drill at McDaniel College in the summer of 2010.

"We appreciate all Domonique did for us the past three years, both with his play and his important leadership off the field," general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "This does not preclude us from bringing back Domonique at a later date."
