The Washington Redskins continue to sign players for next season and have announce that Tyler Larsen and Ty Nsekhe have joined the team today.  Larsen(6'4", 315 lbs) is a center who played college football at Utah State from 2010 to 2013.  He was undrafted in last year's draft, and signed with the Miami Dolphins.  He was released before the season started and did not play last season. Tyler Larsen was considered a draftable center with  5th-7th round grade last year, and could compete for a roster spot.  The Redskins backup center last season was Chris Chester who is a possible roster cut this season. More on Tyler Larsen from

"You always want to be drafted," Larsen said with the Dolphins at the time. "That's just a little bump in the road and I'm here right now. Coaches have said that everyone is a player on the team and that's how I'm going to take my approach to this and I'm just going to give my all and I'm just happy to be here."

These were Larsen's strengths, according to his Draft profile last year:

"Excellent size - sheer mass to wall off. Generally holds his ground. Can sit and anchor and replace his hands. Good awareness. Consistent gun snaps. Was a rock for the Aggies, starting 51 career games."

Ty Nsekhe(6'8", 325 lbs) was an undrafted free agent after the 2009 draft, and played college football at Texas State.  He started his professional career in the Arena Football League 2, the AFL's developmental league(yes that's a thing, and yes the AFL had a developmental league, but the NFL doesn't).  He then graduated to the big boy league after the AFL2 folded, and bounced around several teams in the AFL.  In 2012 he was signed by the Indianapolis Colts, but released before the season started.  The St. Louis Rams claimed him from waivers and he was on the 53-man roster for two games.  He was also signed by the New Orleans Saints to a futures/reserve deal, but did not play a game for them. He then moved on to the CFL last season.
