Rolling at 30: Will Forsett or Peterson have more yards in 2015?

Who will have more rushing yards next season, Adrian Peterson or Justin Forsett?

The Vikings and Peterson announced they had agreed to a restructured contract Tuesday, as the star running back took another step toward putting his tumultuous 2014 in the rearview mirror. But while last year was a nightmare for Peterson, Forsett had a career season, helping the Ravens make the playoffs and earning a new contract of his own.

Peterson has enjoyed a Hall of Fame worthy career, while Forsett was an NFL journeyman until last season. But here’s an interesting fact. In 2013, Peterson rushed for exactly the same number of yards (1,266) that Forsett rushed for last season.

Peterson turned 30 years old in March, while Forsett will turn 30 in October. Peterson is determined to prove he hasn’t lost anything, while Forsett wants to show he wasn’t a one-year wonder, running behind a Ravens offensive line that returns intact.

So who will have more rushing yards in 2015, Peterson or Forsett? Plenty of fantasy football owners would love to know. Feel free to let me know what you think on Twitter @CliftonBrownCSN, or on Facebook.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: What to look out for at OTAs

Kick off your Thursday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including what to watch for at OTAs.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. As the Ravens try and bolster their pass rush during the offseason, they hope to find much-needed help from outside linebacker, Shane Ray. The Ravens picked up Ray from the Denver Broncos where he had an unproductive last two seasons due to injury, only registering one sack in each of the past two seasons. However, Ray had a phenomenal career at Missouri as a unanimous All-American and SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. The Ravens have given Ray a shot at a career reboot and fans are excited to see what he's got.

2. Thursday is the media's first opportunity to get a look at the 2019-20 Ravens. Ravens writer Ryan Mink writes seven things to look out for at OTAs including, attendance from veterans even though OTAs are mandatory, a look at linebacker development with the signings of namely Pernell McPhee and Shane Ray and a first look at the rookie class to name a few.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Ravens rank higher than expected in preseason rankings

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including a high preseason ranking for the Ravens.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. The Ravens ranked higher than expected in Peter King's preseason rankings. King ranked the Ravens at No. 12, surprising for a defense that is working on development during this offseason. However, with the Ravens' signing of All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, maybe he will bring the fire the Ravens need on defense.

2. With day 2 of OTAs in the books, the focus has been on quarterback Lamar Jackson. Ravens writer, Kevin Eck noted that during the offseason, Jackson had been working out with Ravens quarterbacks coach, Joshua Harris along with receivers Jordan Lasley and Jaylen Smith, so it remains to be seen throughout the summer on whether or not he has improved namely his passing game. 

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
