Ravens may still sign Devin Hester, bring back Justin Forsett

The Ravens may still have some ideas for a couple of veteran players who aren’t currently on the 53-man roster.

Running back Justin Forsett, who was cut yesterday, and return man Devin Hester, who tried out in Baltimore last week, both could be signed, according to ESPN.

One option for the Ravens could be waiting until after Week One to sign Forsett and Hester. Both players are vested veterans, so their salaries would be guaranteed if they’re on the Week One roster but not if they’re signed in Week Two or later.

The decision to cut Forsett saved the Ravens $3 million in salary cap space, and the team could bring him back at a lower price. Hester has been a free agent for six weeks and seems to be drawing more interest from the Ravens than anyone else.

At the moment the Ravens’ running back depth chart includes Javorious Allen, Terrance West and Kenneth Dixon. Tavon Young is slated to return kickoffs while Lardarious Webb is the favorite to return punts.

  1. The TRUE SB MVP was a return man so i guess the Ravens are reaching for a washed up returner to spark something… as long as Flappo is the qb they will remain at the bottom…

    I’ve never understood why some folks believe jacoby was more deserving of the MVP than Joe. He made two splash plays (and I’m thankful he did), but other than that he was pretty much invisible. You need to go back and re watch the game bettis. And if you’re still not convinced, just look at the numbers. Joe posted the highest QBR by any QB, ever, in super bowl 47. Numbers don’t lie my yinzer friend.

  3. According to a poll by the NFL, 60 % of fans from all over the country thought Joe was the MVP of SB 47. 20% voted for Boldin, and 20 % for Jones. Bettis and most steeler fans want to deny Joe his MVP trophy. They only wish Ben had one.

  4. Dwj, there have been quite a few Super Bowl Mvps over the years that only contributed splash plays. Seattle, Pittsburgh, Green Bay. Jones’ 2 big plays and Boldin’s amazing catches won that game. And check your stats, Flacco’ qbr in that super bowl lands him at #8 in super bowl history.

  5. Jack, Ben does not need a mvp trophy to define his career. He won his first 13 games as a rookie, won his first playoff game as a rookie, carried his team to the Super Bowl in his second year, won the Super Bowl in his second year by not messing up completely, won his second super bowl in his fifth season where he should have been mvp, went to his third super bowl in his seventh season. As long as he wins, I could care less if he wins a mvp trophy in the super bowl.

    Bettis needs to explain why a relatively mediocre WR in Lynn Swann made it to the HOF. Look at his numbers.”

    Apples to oranges. Stats to get in the HOF then were different than what they are now. The game has changed.

  7. @enoughofthat- I didn’t say Ben needed a SBMVP trophy to define his career. His HOF career, I might add. I was only defending Joe’s SBMVP. Bettis was questioning that, giving no basis to his argument.
