Broncos WR Cody Latimer vows to make an impact
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Wide receiver Cody Latimer was expected to play a role in the Broncos offense during his rookie season, but wound up catching just two passes. This year, he tells the Denver Post, he wants to make more of an impact in the passing game.
"Last year was a disappointment to myself. I hated not being on that field," second-round picck said. "I took it as an oath of mine. This year I'm going to get on that field. I'm going to study extra and do whatever I need to do."
Latimer attended quarterback Peyton Manning's throwing camp and studied new coach Gary Kubiak's playbook in order to fit in when the action begins.
"I didn't have the opportunity to get on the field because I wasn't doing my job," Latimer said. "This year, they'll know who I am."
Broncos WR Cody Latimer struggled to pick up offense in 2014
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer didn't see much action in his rookie season, partially because of the complex offense Denver ran, according to the Denver Post.
"It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer said. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower."
Latimer had just two receptions for 23 yards last season.
"They kept me going when I was at practice getting yelled at with people saying I didn't know what I was doing. They said repeatedly, 'Your time will come,' " Latimer said. "They said I had it in me, that I have to go out there and show the world. Part of my grind is making them look good."
Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play more slot this season
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/13/15) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said he was informed by coaches that he will slide into the slot receiver role vacated by Wes Welker, per Pro Football Talk.
Sanders, who is coming off a Pro Bowl campaign in which he caught 101 passes for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs -- will make room for Cody Latimer on the outside.
"Cody is a special player. He has strong hands and is a physical tool. I think this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene," Sanders said.
Broncos' Peyton Manning teases Demaryius Thomas for skipping workout
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/5/15) As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.
Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done.
Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green.
Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.
Broncos WR Cody Latimer ready to step up in year two
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer is ready to take on a bigger role in year two with the team, reports the team's offical website.
"I feel like I’m ready, especially coming in a new offense, everybody gets a clean slate so we’re all starting from Day 1, and it’ll be exciting," he said. "I get to work with Peyton coming up soon, so he’ll be able to get me more into the offense and getting my learning curve, taking it to the next level."
Latimer is preparing to work with Peyton and Eli Manning at their yearly workout session next week.
"It’s my first time there, so it should be fun. I know we’re going to be working, studying, probably watching film and running routes," Latimer said. "It’s a good connection. It’s an early head start, in other words, to something that should be great. So that’s what I’m looking forward to, getting our timing connection and probably learning off of him and maybe learning something of the offense and things like that."
Latimer is cognizant of the fact that the team expects big things from him this upcoming season.
"I know it’s a big opportunity and I’ve got to make that leap for myself and our organization. They expect big things out of me; they drafted me in the second round, they expect me to produce so I feel like I’ve got to own up to that and make it happen.”
|The Broncos have high expectations for second-year receiver Cody Latimer this season, and Fantasy owners should consider him a sleeper in all leagues. Coach Gary Kubiak expects Latimer to "make a big jump, not just a little jump" this season because the team has to replace the departed Julius Thomas and Wes Welker, who accounted for 92 catches, 953 yards and 14 touchdowns last season. Latimer will compete with Andre Caldwell for the No. 3 receiver job behind Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and we expect Latimer to win the battle. He had just two catches for 23 yards as a rookie last year on four targets, but his stats will rise dramatically this season. He's worth drafting with a mid- to late-round pick in all formats.
