Forsett officially announced his retirement Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The former seventh-round selection beat the odds and put together a quality nine-year career. His breakout season came in his seventh year in the league in 2014 when he grabbed hold of the starting role for the Ravens and responded with 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging a strong 5.4 yards per carry. He did bounce around between three teams last season and went through this entire offseason without a new contract, which ultimately led to him opting for retirement. Forsett finishes his career with 20 total touchdowns and a 4.7 yards-per-carry average.

Forsett will make a decision within the next month or so on whether he'll resume his playing career, The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett played for the Broncos, Lions and Ravens last season, bouncing around the league as a veteran running back capable of providing depth for teams in need. After joining Denver in December, Forsett went on to start three of the four games he played for the Broncos, finishing with 155 yards and a touchdown on 43 rushing attempts. However, at 31 years old and without a contract for next season, it remains to be seen whether Forsett will try to find a landing spot ahead of the 2017 campaign or decide to call time on his career after nine seasons.

Forsett will consider retirement in the offseason, Mile High Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett spent the 2016 campaign with three different organizations, beginning with the Ravens, then the Lions and finally the Broncos. While his age is becoming a red-flag, Forsett still looked to have something left in Denver and could make for a quality veteran addition to a team lacking depth at running back, should he choose to return for a 10th season.

Forsett rushed for 11 yards and a touchdown on five carries in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Denver was forced to abandon the run after falling behind early. It wouldn't be a surprise if Forsett's first score of the season winds up being his last as head coach Gary Kubiak has emphasized his desire to take a long look at 2017 during Sunday's season finale. Rookie Devontae Booker, who finally flashed the potential that made him a fourth-round pick in Sunday's loss, is almost certain to get the bulk of the looks with the veteran already a known commodity.

Forsett had 10 carries fr 37 yards and caught four of five targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett saw a lot of work early, touching the ball seven times for 40 yards in the first quarter. His production dropped over the final three quarters, but he still outproduced Devontae Booker, who finished with just six carries for 17 yards and two receptions for 16 yards. The veteran RB will square off against the Chiefs next week.

Forsett rushed for 17 yards on six carries and added 18 yards on three catches in Sunday's loss to Tennessee. He fumbled during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett's first carry as a Bronco ended in a fumble that set up Tennessee with a two-score lead that Denver never recovered from. The team pretty much abandoned the run after that, with the team dropping back on 86 percent of its offensive snaps. Forsett's familiarity with Gary Kubiak's offense might allow him to be the lead back as the season winds down to a close, but the Broncos' running game is so flawed at this point, one has to ask if such a title carries much weight.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak believes Forsett will have a role in the Denver offense Week 14 against the Titans, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per Kubiak, Forsett could "split" time with starter Devontae Booker -- a back who has been underwhelming of late and hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game this season. Kubiak went as far as to compare Forsett's role to that of Kapri Bibbs before his ankle injury. This is noteworthy because over the last three weeks, Bibbs had vultured 21 combined carries from Booker, and even caught a 69-yard touchdown back in Week 9. Only time will tell the exact workload of Forsett, though Booker fantasy owners may want to tempter their expectations in Week 14.

Forsett was claimed off waivers by the Broncos on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett joins Denver after being released by the Lions on Saturday. Following Kapri Bibbs' high ankle sprain suffered over the weekend, rookie Devontae Booker was the lone healthy tailback left on the Broncos' roster, so adding the veteran Forsett certainly makes sense. Furthermore, after spending time with coach Gary Kubiak when he was the Ravens' offensive coordinator in 2014, Forsett may be able to offer the Broncos a more immediate impact than other options would've, further justifying his addition.

Forsett was released by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsett joined the Lions when the team was dealing with injuries to both Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington in October. However, he was a healthy scratch in each of the past four games because he doesn't offer much, if any, value on special teams. There's a chance he could wind up on a contending roster in need of running back help before season's end, though.

Forsett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Jaguars, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran running back will take a seat with Theo Riddick (ankle) active, making it a third straight game that he won't be in uniform.
