Justin Forsett reaches three-year agreement with the Ravens


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) The Ravens have reached a three-year agreement with free agent running back Justin Forsett on Thursday, the team announced. His deal is for three years in the $3 million range, per the Baltimore Sun.

"Sometimes you have fortunate signings in this business, and Justin was one of those," general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. "We were fortunate because he became such a vital part of our on-field success and quickly became a steadying influence in the locker room at an uneasy time for us. He gave us more than we anticipated. From what we expected, he gave us unprecedented production."

Forsett, who will turn 30 in November, made $730,000 while playing under a one-year contract for the Ravens last year. He broke out in 2014, totaling 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 carries. Before his deal with Baltimore, Forsett played mostly backup roles in Seattle, Houston and Jacksonville.

"He fits well into what we do on offense, and he handles all parts of the job effectively, including blocking and receiving," Newsome said. "I mentioned this a few weeks ago when we met with the media: Justin is a tremendous leader by example and willing to step up as both a leader and mentor. He is truly a success story, and we're happy he'll continue that with us. He earned his new contract."

Forsett will rejoin Baltimore's backfield that already included Lorenzo Taliaferro and Bernard Pierce.

Justin Forsett 'open' to leaving Ravens, 'looking for a commitment'


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) One of the biggest surprises in the 2014 NFL season was the emergence of running back Justin Forsett, a journeyman that hadn't had a previous starting opportunity. 

Given the chance with the Ravens this past season, Forsett made the most of it, totaling 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 carries. Before Baltimore, Forsett played mostly backup roles in Seattle, Houston and Jacksonville.

An upcoming free agent with his one-year deal expiring, Forsett, appearing on SiriusXM Radio, said that while he'd ideally like to stay with the team that gave him his first starting opportunity, he's looking for a team willing to invest in him for the long-term.

"Yeah, definitely, I want to return back in Baltimore and play in this city but I'm really looking for a commitment," Forsett said. "Throughout my whole career, bouncing back and forth — I want a stable place, stable team. Wherever that comes, you know, I'm open for it. So, I'm just playing it by ear right now and of course, I'll listen to any offers out there right now."


Justin Forsett: The Ravens 'expressed that they want me back'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Justin Forsett told reporters following Friday's Pro Bowl practice that the Ravens have expressed interest in bringing him back next season, according to NFL.com. Forsett, who replaced Arian Foster's spot in the exhibition game, noted that he has not engaged in any contract discussions with the team, but remains optimistic of a possible deal in the offseason.

"That is the plan, they gave me my shot, they trusted me and believed in me enough to give me that shot so I'd like to stay," Forsett said. "They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we'll see what happens."

Forsett, 29 is seeking his first multiyear contract of his career after playing for five teams in seven seasons. He broke out for 1,266 rushing yards this season, fifth-most in the NFL, and led all running backs with 5.4 yards per carry.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Ravens RB Justin Forsett wants out of 'friend zone'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/12/2015) Scheduled to hit free agency after a breakout year, Ravens running back Justin Forsett made it clear he wants to stay with the team that finally gave him a chance to start. But the 29-year-old also is looking for the first big multiyear contract of his career.

“There’s a business side to it. I’ve experienced the business side of it,” the former seventh-round pick told the team's website. “These guys are familiar with me and they gave me my first real shot, but there’s also a business side of it where unfortunately I’ve been in the ‘friend zone’ for most of my career. Hopefully we can get into a deeper commitment somewhere down the road and get some stability.”

Forsett has played for five teams in seven seasons. He broke out for 1,266 rushing yards this season, fifth-most in the NFL, and led all running backs with 5.4 yards per carry.


Forsett wants to be back with Ravens, will be patient with free agency


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) Running back Justin Forsett hopes to return to the Ravens roster following a breakout season in 2014, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Forsett is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March after playing the '14 season under a one-year, $730,000 contract for the veteran minimum.

"I'm blessed to have the opportunity to show what I can do," Forsett said. "It's been a long time coming and I just want to build on it. I would love to stay here and be a Raven, but there's a business part of that. I've experienced a lot of the business side of it, but hopefully we can get something done."

The 29-year-old Forsett isn't eligible to sign a new contract with the Ravens until free agency officially begins in March. However, sources said both sides are motivated to talk about a new contract.

"Patience, I'm OK with that," Forsett said. "I've had to do that a lot in my career.  Nothing is promised. I've been told a lot of things in my career. My thing is to just be patient and let God sort the rest out."

In 18 games this season, Forset surpassed 100 yards on the ground six different times. With Baltimore up 21-14, quarterback Joe Flacco found Forsett coming out of the back field, where he was wide open to finish off the play with a 16-yard touchdown.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Ravens will look to get the running game going in the divisional round of the playoffs against the Patriots next week.


Three big runs highlight Sunday for Ravens RB Forsett


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett didn't do much Sunday against Cleveland aside from three big runs. But those three attempts gave him tremendous numbers.

Forsett exploded for two 32-yard carries and a 26-yarder that put the cherry on top in the fourth quarter. He otherwise rushed for 29 yards on 14 carries to finish with 119 yards on 17 attempts.

He added two catches for 17 yards.


Ravens RB Justin Forsett held to 19 rushing yards in loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett failed to get anything going on the ground during the Ravens’ 25-13 loss to the Texans Sunday.

Forsett was held to 19 rushing yards on 10 carries. The 19 rushing yards were a season low for Forsett. It was the third straight game Forsett failed to reach 100 rushing yards in a game. Forsett did catch all four of his receiving targets for 13 yards.

The Ravens host the Browns Week 17.


Justin Forsett running out of steam


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett has been one of the biggest surprises in the league this season, as he entered Week 16 among the top-5 in rushing yards and yards per carry this season. However, he put together his second poor performance in a row Sunday against the Texans, and he might be running out of steam here.

Forsett had just 19 yards on 10 carries Sunday, his worst showing of the season. That comes seven days after he managed 48 yards on 16 carries, a 3.0 average that was his previous worst showing yet. He has just 67 yards on 26 carries over the last two games, and has not topped 71 yards since his three-game, 100-yard streak from Weeks 10 through 13.

Forsett is putting the finishing touches on the best season of his career by a long shot, but might be slowing down with 100 more carries than he has ever had before. We'll see if he can finish with a flourish in Week 17, with the Browns on the way.


Ravens RB Justin Forsett not on injury report


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/18/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett, who's dealt with a knee injury the past few weeks, is no longer on the injury report, reports the Baltimore Sun. "I feel good," he said.

"This is actually one of the best Wednesdays that I've had in a while. So, my body is feeling good, maintaining, feeling ready to go."

Forsett practiced fully Wednesday ahead of Sunday's visit to Houston. He has run for 1,128 yards and eight touchdowns and leads all running backs with 5.4 yards per carry.


Justin Forsett stumbles in prime matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett failed to take advantage of a prime matchup, as he flopped in Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Going against a Jaguars defense that ranked just 27th against running backs, Forsett managed just 4 Fantasy points Sunday, his worst performance of the season. He rushed for just 48 yards on 16 carries, his worst yards per carry performance of the season as well.

Forsett topped the 200-carry mark for the first time in his career Sunday, so it's possible fatigue is setting in. However, he still had 5.5 yards per carry and a touchdown in his previous game, so let's not jump to conclusions. Forsett's enjoying a career season, but he's allowed a bad game here and there. He has a tough matchup on the way in Week 16 with the Texans on the way, but should still be a worthy Fantasy starter for that game.  


Ravens' Justin Forsett does little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Ravens running back Justin Forsett did little Week 15 against the Jaguars.

Forsett received the bulk of the team's carries, but wasn't able to do much. He gained 48 yards on 16 carries. Forsett averaged just 3.0 yards per attempt. He wasn't much of a factor in the passing game, either, hauling in one pass for -1 yards. 

Forsett will hope for more Week 16 against the Texans.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
