Former Seattle Seahawks running back Justin Forsett is headed back to Texas.
After working out with Houston Texans last week, the Arlington, Texas native agreed to terms with the team according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Forsett, 27, will join Houston running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate to give the Texans more versatility in the backfield, and is a good fit because of his time spent in Seattle’s zone blocking scheme.
The Texans are one of the best zone running teams in the league.
Forsett also could be used in third down situations by Houston. Seattle decided not to bring back the Cal product after drafting Utah State product Robert Turbin in the fourth round of this year’s draft, along with adding Kregg Lumpkin and Tyrell Sutton in free agency.
