The Broncos had their annual team golf outing this week, and Peyton Manning made sure to get a little work done while he hit the links.
Manning requested rookie receiver Cody Latimer, rookie offensive tackle Michael Schofield and free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders as his foursome, so that he could get to know three of his most important new teammates and get started talking about how they’ll mesh with the rest of the players on the Broncos’ offense.
“They told me I was already taken, that No. 18 had asked for me,” Latimer told USA Today.
Latimer had never played golf before, so Manning instructed him in more than just football.
“It was just an honor that he wanted to get to know me,” Latimer said. “And then he also taught me how to play golf. He didn’t know till we got there that I had never golfed.”
Latimer sounds ready to learn a lot from Manning, about more than just golf.
