The 29-year-old Forsett told NFL Network at Pro Bowl practice on Saturday that he wants to return to Baltimore, though has indicated in the past that he wants some job security.
“That is the plan, they gave me my shot, they trusted me and believed in me enough to give me that shot so I’d like to stay,” Forsett said.
Forsett added that the Ravens have reached out to him and are interested in keeping him around.
“They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we’ll see what happens,” he said.
Very few NFL teams offer long-term extensions to RBs that are so close to age 30, but with few other options on the team, the Ravens may be tempted to give Forsett a deal.
Forsett took over as the Ravens primary running back with the suspension and eventual cutting of RB Ray Rice. In his 7th NFL season, Forsett set career highs in nearly every major rushing category, recording 1,266 rushing yards, 8 TDs, and 1,529 yards from scrimmage – all in the top 10 for the NFL in 2014. For his efforts, Forsett was named to his first Pro Bowl.
The Ravens are Forsett’s 5th NFL team since the Seahawks drafted him in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL draft.
