A breakout season has the Ravens RB looking at the future, not resting on his laurels.
Baltimore Ravens RB says he wants to improve from his impressive 2014 season, adding that he wants to stay with the team in 2015.
Forsett told the Baltimore Sun that he wants to build on his breakout 2014 season and continue to improve as a running back. In 2014 he led all NFL RBs in yards per carry and runs over 20 yards last season. The Ravens starting RB finished 5th in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,266 yards and tied for 8th with 8 rushing TDs.
“I want to build upon it,” Forsett said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I want to be great. I didn’t come in this league to be a one-year wonder. Every time I got an opportunity I was able to seize it and I want to continue to do that.”
Forsett’s breakthrough season came in his seventh year in the league for his 8th NFL season with his 5th different team. The Ravens originally signed Forsett as a backup to hold the place of former starting RB Ray Rice. But after Rice was released from the team in September, Forsett kept his grip on the job with his incredible play – including six games with over 100 yards rushing and ten games with over 5.0 yards/carry.
For his efforts Forsett was named to his first Pro Bowl and has sought a long-term deal as a permanent starting RB. Forsett earned only $730,000 for the Ravens in 2014.
