The 2014 NFL season has been an incredible one for Justin Forsett. From minor obscurity, the speedy running back has redefined what the Baltimore Ravens want from their tailbacks.

Forsett came into the season as the Ravens number three back, but now he is the first choice and is currently sitting on the NFL's top rushing yards per game average this campaign.

As a result of his awesome form this season, Justin Forsett believes it's high time he was rewarded with a new contract. The 29-year-old journeyman has certainly warranted a contract extension with his strong play, with Forsett adding that there is nowhere he would rather be right now.

Forsett wants new contract 

"Definitely, this is a great place, a great organization," Forsett told The Baltimore Sun, reported.

"It's hard not to want to be here. Definitely, I'm sure after the season sometime they'll probably get something done."

Forsett was speaking ahead of the Baltimore Ravens home game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. The game is a crucial one for Baltimore's playoff hopes, and it's Forsett that has arguably provided the most for the Ravens during their push for the post-season.

The diminutive tailback is third in rushing yards with 903, while he leads all running-backs when it comes to yards per carry (5.83) and he has more rushes of 20-plus yards than any other back in the NFL.

Baltimore is a place he can call home

These statistics add weight to the argument that suggests the Ravens should offer Forsett a new deal, something the speedy back admits he would love.

"I would love to sign here. I've been waiting my whole career to find a home somewhere to not have to move every offseason. So, that would be nice."
