Ravens Re-sign RB Forsett to 3-Year Deal
After former Raven and beloved running back Ray Rice was released due to his domestic behavior, the city of Baltimore needed a running back to step in and bring balance back to John Harbaugh's offense. Who knew it would be 29-year-old journeyman Justin Forsett?
Strictly in Baltimore on a one-year deal because of his knowledge of former offensve coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense, Forsett rose up the depth chart and became one of the NFL's best surprises of 2014.
The Ravens decided they couldn't let Forsett walk away, deciding instead to bring back the former Cal Bear on a three-year, $9 million deal.
Forsett led the NFL with a 5.4 YPC mark to go with a career-high 1,266 yards. He also added 263 yards through the air on 44 catches. Forsett was also selected to his first Pro-Bowl in 2014.
With the massive exchange of dollars for other running backs such as LeSean McCoy and DeMarco Murray, the Ravens were able to bring back one of their free-agent priorities for a significantly cheaper price.
