FB/LB Spencer Larsen Signs With Patriots

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.
