The Jaguars are parting ways with an experienced backup tailback.

According to Adam Schefter, the Jaguars have cut running back Justin Forsett.

The 28-year-old Forsett played nine games for the Jaguars in 2014, rushing for 31 yards on six carries and catching 15 passes for 82 yards.

A seventh-year pro from California, Forsett has also played for Indianapolis, Seattle and Houston. He has rushed for 1,692 yards and eight TDs on 314 career carries and has hauled in 115 passes for 850 yards and one score.

When the new league year begins later Tuesday, the Jaguars’ most experienced tailbacks on the roster look to be Jordan Todman and Delone Carter, with Denard Robinson another option.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew, a Jacksonville stalwart, will be able to test the open market beginning Tuesday afternoon.

  1. We used to call him “one touch” in Seattle. Always went down the first time somebody touched him. Surprised he’s still in the league but he had a nice run.

  2. Actually Justin was pretty effective in Seattle, averaging nearly 5 yards a touch in 2010 as a change-of-pace back. Short, quick, tough, friend and ex-roomate of BeastMode.

    Justin ran hard and played with heart. Good Luck JF !
