Ravens release Justin Forsett .... again

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens have released running back Justin Forsett for the second time in a month.

Forsett, a seventh round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2008 who rushed for 1,287 yards with the Seahawks, had been benched last week after rushing for just 3.2 yards per carry this season. The Ravens released him on September 3 in a cap-cutting move but almost instantly re-signed him. The 31-year-old had just 98 yards on 31 carries however and was replaced in the starting lineup by Terrance West.

Seattle may have been a rumored destination for Forsett following injuries to Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, but his release may be a week late since the team signed C.J. Spiller already. Spiller caught a touchdown pass on Sunday against the Jets.

Though he’s 31, Forsett has only 764 career carries and was a Pro Bowl running back in 2014. He could very well get another shot and if the Seahawks continue to lose backs to injuries, they might come calling.
