The Browns kept a watchful eye on Tulane RB Matt Forte throughout the week of practice at the Senior Bowl. The Browns met with the running back twice in Mobile. Whether the Browns sign Jamal Lewis or not they have a need for running back and Forte could be the heir apparent. Forte was a solid performer and was deemed the best running back on display in Mobile. The 6-foot-1, 221-pound bruiser is viewed as a scaled- back version of Lewis with speed, but still offering the same type of rugged running style.
