Report: running back Justin Forsett to visit Texans
Left without a spot in the Seahawks' backfield, free-agent running back Justin Forsett will visit the Houston Texans next week, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.
He was the Seahawks' starter for the first four games in 2010 before giving way to Marshawn Lynch -- his good friend and teammate at Cal -- when the Seahawks acquired Lynch in a trade with the Bills. Forsett finished that season with 523 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Last season, while splitting third-down duties with Leon Washington, Forsett had a 145 yards and one score.
The Seahawks didn't seem to have room for the diminutive Forsett after spending a fourth-round pick on Robert Turbin, a bigger running back they targeted for his ability to duplicate Marshawn Lynch's physical style. Washington, a standout kick returner, has two years remaining on his contract.
