My my network looks as follows

Cisco 3825 Router>>>>>ASA5525-X>>>>>>>Switching

I am replacing the Cisco 3825 Router, but I would like a router that will support a 1GB WAN Connection.  Yes I know the ASA5525-X only supports 650 Firewall Throughput, but I'm planning for the future and want a router that will support 1Gb.  I was looking at the Cisco ASR 1001.  What I can't tell is does this come with 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports?  Looks like just SFP's to me.  Right know my internet bandwidth is 400Mbps, so its currently an Ethernet hand off, so I need the router to be able to handle a ethernet handoff, and I will need 3 gigabit ethernet ports from the get go.  Any thoughts?
