Forsett, Reynolds released by Ravens as roster goes to 53

OWINGS MILLS, MD. (AP) - Former Pro Bowl running back Justin Forsett and Navy star Keenan Reynolds have been released by the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens also cut linebacker Arthur Brown, safety Terrence Brooks and receiver Jeremy Butler on Saturday to reduce their roster to the NFL-mandated 53 players.

Forsett was an alternate in the 2014 Pro Bowl after running for a career-high 1,266 yards with Baltimore. He returned as the starter last year and rushed for 641 yards in 10 games before breaking his arm in Week 11.

He was used sparingly in the preseason, and now it appears the Ravens will use Terrance West as their starter on Sept. 11 against Buffalo.

The 30-year-old Forsett was slated to receive $3 million this season.

Reynolds was a record-setting quarterback at Navy before being drafted in the sixth round by the Ravens. He was trying to make the team as a receiver and kicker returner, but never made the necessary adjustment to master either position.
