Of course all the talk has been about Peyton Manning and Tim Tebow, and rightfully so. They’re two of the biggest names in the sport.
However, the Broncos just lost a guy more versatile than both Manning and Tebow.
FB/LB Spencer Larsen signed on with the New England Patriots Thursday after two seasons with the Broncos. You can bet that Josh McDaniels was a big proponent in that decision.
Larsen played fullback, linebacker, and special teams in Denver showing how great his football IQ is. Last season, Larsen played fullback in about a quarter of the Broncos offensive plays. He averaged 3.1 yards per carry on 14 touches. He also had 9 receptions for 76 yards.
The Patriots signing Larsen is a bit curious considering they haven’t used a fullback in their offense for a few years.
It was an honor to watch such a workhorse in practice and on game days. He will be missed in Denver, and we wish him the best of luck moving forward.
