Redskins' Cody Latimer arrested on five charges in Colorado, including illegal discharge of a firearm

Latimer signed with the Redskins just last month




Early Saturday morning, Washington Redskins wide receiver Cody Latimer was arrested on several charges in Douglas County, Colorado. According to the Douglas County Sheriff, Latimer was booked on assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment. He is being held on a $25,000 bond.

According to the report, around 12:11 a.m. deputies were called to an apartment complex due to a report of shots being fired inside of a unit. Those who made the call to the police reported that they heard arguing and what they believed to be gunshots inside of an apartment. When the responding officers arrived, they found three individuals who were all detained. One person had minor injuries, which were not related to a gunshot. The Douglas County Sheriff says this is still "an open and very active" investigation and no other information will be released at this time.

Shortly after the arrest became public, John Keim of ESPN released an official statement from the Redskins

"We are aware of the situation and have informed the NFL League Office. We will continue to gather more information and have no further comment at this time."

Latimer was originally drafted by the Denver Broncos in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He signed with the New York Giants in 2018 and spent two seasons there before signing with the Redskins last month. In 66 career games, Latimer has caught 70 passes for 935 yards and six touchdowns. He's coming off a career season with the Giants, where he recorded 24 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games. Latimer was the only wideout the Redskins picked up in free agency, but they did select Antonio Gandy-Golden and hybrid offensive weapon Antonio Gibson in the 2020 NFL Draft.

I didn't think he was going to make the team anyway, so from a Redskins perspective, no big deal.  From a real life perspective, I hope this is just a case of Latimer being at the wrong place at the wrong time and he hasn't flushed his career down the toilet.

Well we all knew that since we didn't get caught up in the Dunbar situation we would have someone make sure to keep the team in the News for something idiotic.  At least the team didn't give up anything for him.

Its cuz we mocked Dunbar isnt it


Nah, Dunbar's an idiot.  Robbing someone (allegedly) with a firearm for a $25,000 watch. WIth his salary, he could've bought 10 of those without even thinking about it.

Does that mean Cam Sims or another WR hopeful makes the final 53?


Probably, but it's difficult to tell how many receivers our new coach will keep.

I may go back and look at his Carolina rosters to see how many he kept normally. That's a lot of years to use as a sample


But right now, I think it stands something like this.




S. Sims



C. Sims


and Gibson will be a 3rd down RB who will line up as a WR from time to time.
