Forsett to Visit Texans
Patrick D. Starr
According to ProFootballTalk, Justin Forsett, RB, (26, 5'8", 198 lbs.) formerly of the Seattle Seahawks, will be visiting the Houston Texans on Wednesday, May 30, 2012. Forsett saw a large decrease in carries with the Seahawks in 2011 with 46 carries for 145 yards and 1 TD as Marshawn Lynch became the primary back. In recent years, Forsett produced 118 carries for 523 yards and 2 TDs in 2010, and 114 rushes for 619 yards and 4 TDs in 2009. Forsett also was a reliable contributor in the passing game as well as the punt/kickoff returns in the earlier part of his NFL career.
Justin Forsett played his college football at California (alongside Marshawn Lynch in his first three years at Cal) and was drafted by the Seahawks in round 7 of the 2008 NFL Draft. Forsett was an All-Pacific-10 Conference First Team selection in 2007.
Currently, the Texans depth chart is Arian Foster, Ben Tate and with Javarris Williams, Davin Meggett (R) and Jonathan Grimes (R) fighting for the third roster spot. Adding Forsett to the mix adds some healthy competition.
