If he were to stay with the Saints, Cadet was assumed to take over the Thomas role as the pass-catching man out of the backfield. That is certainly a job Justin Forsett can inherit if he did happen to transfer his talents over to the Big Easy from Charm City.
In the absence of Ray Rice and subpar performance by Bernard Pierece, Forsett handled the workload with ease, totaling 1,266 and eight touchdowns on 235 carries. He also added 44 receptions for 263 yards. He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first time this past season.
Drafted in the seventh round of the 2008 draft, the 29-year-old Forsett spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars before breaking out of his shell for the Ravens.
During his seven-year career, Justin Forsett has racked up 2,958 yards and 16 scores on 582 carries (5.1 YPC) and 1,113 yards and a touchdown on 159 receptions.
Forsett could bring explosiveness and versatility to New Orleans’ offense, but he’s also shown flashes of power running in the past. I’m sure Saints fans can recall that last Monday night game in Week 12 when he trampled over the Black and Gold’s defense for 182 yards on the ground. While it is only a report at the moment, Justin Forsett would be a nice addition in the Crescent City.
