The former Indiana football wideout is on the move in NFL free-agency and has found a new home with the Washington Redskins.
As the NFL offseason continues to ramp up and NFL free-agency continues to dominate the sports deadlines, one former Indiana football standout has found a new home ahead of the 2020 season.
Former Hoosiers star wideout Cody Latimer is on the move as he signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins.
Latimer was a second-round draft pick in 2014 by the Denver Broncos and has been a very useful rotational wideout throughout his career. In his six seasons, Latimer has played in 66 games while starting in 15.
While making little impact with the Broncos, his best seasons in his young career have come in the past two years with the Giants. Totaling 490 yards on 35 receptions, Latimer has also chipped in three touchdowns.
The Redskins will allow Latimer to continue his career while being one of the lead wideouts. On the current roster, Terry McLaurin is the only notable name of mention. Despite the quarterback situation being up in the air, someone of Latimer’s skillset could help whomever is under center continue to develop.
Though he will be changing jerseys, he will see a familiar face in offensive lineman Wes Martin. Martin, who is in a position battle for a starting spot of his own, was a fourth-round draft pick from Indiana in last years NFL Draft.
Latimer finished his Indiana career with 135 receptions for 2,042 yards and 17 touchdowns in his three seasons sporting the cream and crimson.
