The Ravens cut running back Justin Forsett last month, in a move that was more about managing the IR rules and less about getting rid of him. The next time they cut Forsett, ti will be more about getting rid of him.
According to Jeff Zribiec of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens plan to part ways with Forsett, given the looming return to health by rookie tailback Kenneth Dixon.
Parting ways with Forsett will save no money, since Forsett’s $3 million base salary is, as a practical matter, fully guaranteed by his status on the Week One roster.
Forsett has 31 carries for 98 yards in three 2016 regular-season appearances. He was ruled inactive on Sunday in favor of Terrance West.
If Forsett is cut before the trade deadline, he’ll become a free agent. And he could find a home with one of the various teams that need running backs.
UPDATE 11:43 a.m. ET: Forsett has tweeted a farewell to Baltimore.
