Forbath was one of the most highly decorated kickers in NCAA football history and it was surprising that he went undrafted in 2011. He battled for a position in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but was eventually cut. He did however get picked up by the Washington Redskins and had a stellar kicking season.
In 2012, Forbath hit 17 of 18 field goals and 33 or 34 extra points. He also did a good job on kickoffs, booting 15 touchbacks.
