Default RB Justin Forsett will tryout for HOU (signs june 2)

ProFootballTalk ‏@ProFootballTalk
RB Justin Forsett will work out for the Texans on Wednesday, per league source.


Evan Silva ‏@evansilva
Justin Forsett could be nice No. 3 back for #Texans. Veteran of ZBS, in NFL and going back to Cal. Excels in pass game. Poor man's Sproles.

Nice. Maybe.

I liked him his first full year with the Seahawks but he never really fulfilled his promise after that. They brought in all those guys (like Lynch and Washington) and he never really got any traction.

What's his worth on ST?

That's where our RB3 will make his living.

He did pretty well his second time around with Seattle when given the starting role due to injuries.

Default Re: RB Justin Forsett will tryout for HOU

Can run a bit, catch a bit, and play some special teams. A 3rd running back who can pick up a lot of all purpose yards for the limited playing time we'll give him. I'm cool with this if he makes the team.

I'd rather have Ward back as our 3rd RB, but wouldn't be upset about Forsett. If Foster or Tate were to go down I'd feel comfortable with him getting a few touches a game. If Jeff Demps fails to qualify for the Olympics I'd also invite him to camp.

Same here. But he did show very good vision and seems to be a very able and willing blocker despite his size. He showed some good hands with Seattle.
His vision must be the thing that carries him, because he's not going to run away from many defenders for his speed alone with a 4.73 40 time.

Yeah, Forsett is definitely more quick than fast. His 40 time out of college shocked me though. There are some pretty decent backs sitting out there in free agency right now. Forsett is a guy that I think can be pretty good in a ZBS. Similar to Moats.

I agree with all what you wrote but also add he can not pick up a blitz.

Me too. My guess is Ward goes to a team that can give him more carries though.

That was his first full year that I was talking about. I thought the kid had a future at that point.

Great as a 3rd down back, not a good blocker. I remember Cushing plowing him over a couple of years ago.

Definitely a one cut runner. Was once a decent returner. Forsett would be a very decent pickup.

The mauling he gave Forsett was special. Check You Tube for Cushing mic'd up for the Seattle game. I'd link it if I weren't posting from my phone.

The big thing Forsett gives us that Ward doesn't is that return ability.

I'd still feel better with Ward as our #3.

I'm liking the idea of having Forsett as our #3 RB. Although he won't see a whole lot of playin' time he'll definitely be good fit for the Texans system...

I'd rather keep Ward as well. But if Ward leaves, Forsett could be a good 3rd back if one of the UDFA's doesn't snatch that spot.
