Domonique Foxworth: 'It's hard to be optimistic'

Domonique Foxworth: 'It's hard to be optimistic' OWINGS MILLS - Doomsday scenarios, harsh rhetoric, multiple accusations of condescending behavior from Carolina Panthers hard-line owner Jerry Richardson and threats of litigation have defined the acrimonious collective bargaining agreement negotiations between the NFL and the NFL Players Association. A lockout is now regarded as eventuality, not a possibility. A scheduled bargaining session was cancelled a week ago after the NFL owners walked out of talks after rejecting a proposal from the players' union. As a member of the NFLPA executive committee, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth is heavily involved in the talks regarding the unresolved labor situation. So far, there's not much to be encouraged about. "It's hard to be optimistic, honestly," Foxworth told Ravens24x7.com in a telephone interview.  "I'm going to do whatever I can do and that's all I can control.

Ravens sign John Harbaugh to three-year, $12 million contract extension

Ravens sign John Harbaugh to three-year, $12 million contract extension OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens never had any intentions of allowing coach John Harbaugh to enter the final year of his contract without securing him for the future, and they followed through on that desire Monday morning by signing him to a three-year, $12 million extension.

"This is much appreciated and I am thankful to Steve [Bisciotti]," said Harbaugh, who signed the deal Monday at the Ravens' training complex after returning from the organization's annual retreat.

Ray Lewis calls out Haynesworth

Ray Lewis calls out Haynesworth There aren't many Albert Haynesworth sympathizers around the league. And that disapproving sentiment toward the Washington Redskins' highly paid absentee defensive tackle extends a short jaunt up I-95 to Baltimore. Ravens All-Pro middle linebacker Ray Lewis weighed in on the Haynesworth controversy during a 106.7 the Fan radio interview conducted by former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington and Chad Dukes. "Your days of long suffering, of pain, of working out and countless hours of suffering, they're for a reason," Lewis said during the interview, per the Washington Post. "To fulfill a legacy, chasing something. And nowadays, where everything gets this dispute here, and I don't want to do this, I don't want to do that. See, when I was coming up, we didn't have that choice, to tell an adult -- no matter who it was -- what we weren't gonna do. .. "I mean, I don't have to create a response.
