Washington wide receiver Cody Latimer was arrested early this morning on several charges after someone called police and reported shots fired inside an apartment.

According to the Sheriff’s Office in Douglas County, Colorado, deputies were called at 12:11 a.m. They arrived at the apartment in question and arrested Latimer and took him to the Douglas County Detention Facility, where he has just posted $25,000 bond.

Latimer was booked on assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

A 2014 second-round draft pick of the Broncos, Latimer lasted four years in Denver and then played two more years with the Giants. He signed in Washington last month. Given Latimer’s overall lack of production and the seriousness of these charges, it wouldn’t be surprising to if this turns out to be the end of his NFL career.

  1. Well Washington, you at least had the past 2-3 days where you looked good for trading Dunbar before the armed robbery nonsense.

    That didnt last long.

  2. anything involving weapons and assault, spousal abuse or beating up a kid should be an automatic ouster, it should be a privilege to play in the NFL, not ‘everyone deserves a second chance’- just too many cases of Ray Lewis, Aaron Hernandez, Rae Carruth etc etc, if they want the money , fame and glory it should be earned not handed to them because they can run fast or whatever. Nice example we set, as long as your rich or famous you can literally get away with pretty much anything- appalling

  3. Well I guess NFL players heard it was time to get back to normal so they are doing their best to accommodate.

  4. Hindsight is always 20-20. Week 17 I bet the under when the offensively challenged Giants and Redskins met and they ultimately combined for 76 points. In retrospect, with Baker, Dunbar and Latimer on the field, I should have expected a shootout.

  5. Given Latimer’s overall lack of production and the seriousness of these charges, it wouldn’t be surprising to if this turns out to be the end of his NFL career.

    He had 24 catches last year for 300 yards–careers highs for both. Over six years he only has 70 catches for 935 yards and six TDs. It wouldn’t be hard to replace that. His salary is $910k and they would only take a $137.5k cap hit if they were to cut him.

    Look on the bright side, now he’ll have more time to get into trouble. He’s made over $7.8M in his career. I hope he saved some of that.

    That’s good stuff right there

  7. Is Latimer what we’d consider another great draft selection by GM extraordinaire, John Elway, a la Paxton Lynch?

  8. Latimer is a below average WR that keeps getting signed to million dollar contracts. Why screw that up? Like the article said, he pretty much just announced his retirement. What is wrong with some of these athletes?

    ——————————————————————————-
    Settle down with the “bust” talk. He never developed into a star WR, but he has played for 6 seasons (signed with the Redskins for this season) and made over $7.5m. I wouldn’t call that a “bust”. I’d say he didn’t turn out to be a star.
    Paxton Lynch was a bust. He couldn’t play at all. The game was too fast for him to process and the rumors were he couldn’t understand the playbook.

    Elway may have whiffed on a few players, but every GM makes bad picks. Elway was just lucky enough to win a Super Bowl before starting to draft poorly.

  10. 2 out the 3 players arrested were Giant property. To use Meatloaf terminology, 2 out of 3 ain’t good.
