It’s as if nothing ever happened between the Baltimore Ravens and Justin Forsett.
Forsett was surprisingly cut last week as teams parred their rosters down to 53 players. But, the separation wasn’t permanent. Forsett was re-signed just days later and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports the contract is identical to Forsett’s deal before he was waived.
Rapoport reports Forsett signed a two-year deal worth $6 million plus an incentive worth $100,000 if he surpasses last season’s rushing total. The only thing that’s different between that contract and Forsett’s original deal is the incentive, which might have been a token of their gratitude for dealing with an odd roster intricacy.
Forsett struggled last season after rushing for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns during his debut season with the Ravens in 2014. He rushed for only 641 yards in 2015 before breaking his arm last November.
Forsett’s saga added even more uncertainty to Baltimore’s backfield situation. Nobody really knows who will get the lion’s share of the carries in Baltimore and it appears to be a four-man competition between Forsett, Javorius Allen, Terrance West and rookie Kenneth Dixon when he gets healthy.
