MONDAY 10:02am: Like Cody, Forsett also received a veteran-minimum deal for $730k, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter).
FRIDAY 11:12am: A day after agreeing to terms with tight end Owen Daniels, the Ravens have added more depth to the offense by bringing aboard another player who spent time with Gary Kubiak in Houston. Baltimore has signed running back Justin Forsett to a one-year contract, the club announced today in a press release.
Forsett, who will join his fourth team in four years by inking a deal with the Ravens, played for current Baltimore offensive coordinator Kubiak in 2012 with the Texans. Although the 28-year-old’s usage has declined over the years since he tallied 118 carries and 33 receptions for the Seahawks in 2010, he’ll provide some depth in the Ravens’ backfield, and could contribute on third downs as well.
Given Ray Rice‘s legal troubles and the fact that Bernard Pierce continues to recover from a shoulder injury, the Ravens had been in the market for a running back. Signing Forsett will help fortify the position, but it won’t necessarily preclude the club from drafting a back in the middle rounds next month, tweets Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.
