This honestly wasn’t as shocking of a move as people are making it out to be. I’m a big Terrence West guy, (go TU Tigers), and he’s looked like our best running back throughout the offseason and preseason. I’ve been saying for weeks that West would be the starter by the end of the year, and it looks like the Ravens got a jump on that early.
As for Forsett, he was an all around good guy, and an easy guy to root for. I don’t know where his NFL career goes from here, but I think it’s safe to say we all wish him the best.
