Broncos RB Forsett considering retirement

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Denver Broncos running back Justin Forsett is considering retirement. He played for three teams during the 2016 season.

He’s the second known player, who has admitted their considering retirement and willing to walk away from the National Football League. Following the Dallas Cowboys loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round, Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr — a soon-to-be free agent — said he’s mulling over retirement, too.

Carr and Forsett are close in age, as Carr is 30-years-old and Forsett is 31-years-old. At 31, running backs are considered “long in the tooth” and the downhill of their career.

If these two players do walk away, they’ll be the latest players, who decide to retire young in their careers. Many of the players – including last off-season with Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson – retired when they were 30-years-old or younger.

Forsett was initially released by the Baltimore Ravens during the final cuts. However, he would eventually be re-signed by the team.

He played in three games, all starts, with the Ravens, where he had 98-yards on 31 carries.

He was then signed by the Lions, where he played two games. With them, he had 13 carries for 38-yards.

After being picked up by the Broncos, including three starts in four games, he had 43 carries for a 155-yards and a touchdown, his long score of the season.
