Justin Forsett will visit the Texans next week


As further proof that the market for veteran running backs has dried up like a seedless grape in the Sahara, once-promising Seahawks tailback Justin Forsett continues to be available, with not much interest demonstrated for his services.

Per a league source, Forsett will visit the Texans on Wednesday.

The Texans’ depth chart currently is topped by Arian Foster and Ben Tate.  Also on the roster are Javarris Williams and rookies Davin Meggett and Jonathan Grimes.

Forsett, 26, has five years of service, including four with Seattle.  He rushed for 619 yards in 2009 (5.4 per carry), 523 in 2010 (4.4 per carry), and only 145 in 2011 (3.2 per carry).  Twenty-two of those yards came on his only touchdown of the season, a play on which he also lost his shoe.
