After about a week of speculation from all corners, Baltimore Ravens Justin Forsett has finally confirmed that he is no longer with the team.
However, despite the running back’s drop from being part of the plans in the Baltimore franchise, Forsett still said that the club will always hold a special place in his heart. Speaking through his Twitter account on Tuesday morning, the 198-lbs 5’8’’ player thanked all his teammates and fans for the support they have accorded him over the years.
Although the Ravens have not yet released an official statement to corroborate Forsett’s announcement, the team’s official website carried his quotes on the move, with one of them terming the parting of ways as a “mutual breakup”.
At 30 years of age, Forsett still feels that he still has “a lot of football left in me” and felt that since his opportunity at the Ravens seemed like it was closing, he had to move on. Statistics from Baltimore indicate that Forsett’s workload had come down from 14 carries in this season’s Week 2 to only seven by Week 3.
For now, the Ravens are anxiously awaiting the arrival of rookie Kenneth Dixon from a protracted knee injury to fill Forsett’s shoes.
