After signing his new contract, the former USU standout commented on staying in Washington. He’s played in Washington since 2021.

“What’s up Commander fans? Can’t wait to come back one more year,” Larsen said in a video tweeted by the Commanders. “Some unfinished business. Can’t wait to get out there.”

“Cannot wait for another year with this team!” Larsen posted via his personal Twitter account.

Larsen suffered a dislocated kneecap during Week 13 of the 2022 season. The injury ended his year. Washington finished its 2022 campaign with an 8-8-1 record.
