Forsett spoke with General Manager Ozzie Newsome Tuesday morning and expressed a desire to move on to another team where he might have a better chance to play.
The Ravens have not officially made the release yet, but Forsett tweeted about his departure.
Forsett was inactive in Week 4 and with the return of Kenneth Dixon on the horizon, the Ravens were finding they didn't have a lot of need for Forsett. Terrance West started last week but talk among those who follow the team is this is Dixon's job at some point. For now, at least until Dixon is back up to speed, it looks like West will get a bulk of the work as the team's RB1.
