The Denver Broncos are in the process of trading nickel cornerback Domonique Foxworth.

The cornerback was told by the team that he is close to being traded and to go home and wait to be traded. Foxworth said that he was told that there are several teams Denver is talking to and that he has no clue where he will play next week only that it won't be with the Broncos.

Foxworth said the Broncos are handling the situation with class.

"They didn't have to give me a warning," Foxworth said. "They are being classy about it. I'm not upset about it at all."

The Patriots, Redskins, Saints, Rams and Browns are among the teams that need a cornerback.

Foxworth, entering his fourth NFL season, has been Denver's nickel cornerback. With him on his way out, Denver's backup cornerbacks behind Champ Bailey and Dre' Bly are Karl Paymah and rookie Jack Williams.
