Former National Football League player and union President Domonique Foxworth discusses a host of topics related to the business of the game, including President Trump’s criticism of the league and its commissioner, Roger Goodell, who thus far hasn’t mandated that players stand for the National Anthem. A graduate of Harvard Business School, Foxworth also recounts lessons learned at the bargaining table. He also touches on displeased NFL sponsors, the relationship between owners and players, and whether the NFL is still the best investment in U.S. pro sports.
Foxworth, 34, played for the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens from 2005-2011. While an active player, he served as president of the NFLPA during labor talks with the owners. The University of Maryland graduate previously worked as chief operating officer of the National Basketball Players Association.
