Redskins’ Cody Latimer Arrested, Charged With Felonies 

Redskins wide receiver Cody Latimer was arrested in Colorado on Saturday morning, as Ryan O’Halloran of The Denver Post writes. He faces five charges, including three felonies and two misdemeanors.

Police in Douglas County responded to a call of shots being fired inside an apartment. No injuries were reported, but they believe Latimer was the shooter. He’s facing charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.

Latimer’s arrest comes on the heels of another troubling event in Florida, said to involve Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback Deandre Baker. Like Dunbar and Baker, Latimer is subject to fines, suspensions, and other discipline from the league office, even if this ultimately does not result in a court case or a conviction.

Latimer, 27, was a second round pick of the Broncos in 2014. In Denver, they waited and waited for his big breakout season, but that never came. After four years with the Broncos, he moved on to the Giants in 2017. Last year, Latimer had 24 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns. For his career, he has a grand total of 70 catches for 835 receiving yards and six scores. He may, or may not, have an opportunity to build on those totals with the Redskins in 2020.

In addition to Latimer, the Redskins have Terry McLaurin, Kelvin Harmon, Trey Quinn near the top of their WR depth chart. They also replenished the group by drafting Liberty’s Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round last month.

    Gotta love this yet again another football player in trouble . They should be more classy like hockey players.

    • The Mistake of Giving Eugene Melnyk a Liver Transplant

      Yeah, I mean not all sports can have Saints like Slava Voynov, Ryan Oreilly, Todd Bertuzzi, etc.

      • Polish Hammer

        I’ll see your Voynov, OReilly and Bertuzzi and raise it with Rae Carruth, Aaron Hernandez, Darren Sharper, Lawrence Phillips…

        • Haha you could list criminals at every profession on the entire planet, from forklift drivers to priests to executives at Enron…there are bad people and good people everywhere, their profession is a horrible measuring stick for amount of good/bad

      • DarkSide830

        i mean each sport has its guys, but you really hear this stuff way more frequently with the NFL it seems.

      • That’s the highest grade Marner has ever received. Dude is just craving attention…it’s sad that this is the only place he can get it

        • windycitykid89

          Not even close. But I’m not the one who looks like a fool constantly like you do, seeking attention in these comments lol

    • TJECK109

      I bet he already has 17 affidavits saying it’s wasnt him. Seems like the way to go now a days

  2. RedsFan1990

    I’m a Hoosier fan so this guy is one of my favorite players. Unfortunately, he hasn’t produced and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s played his last game. Its a shame some of these guys squander their gifts because they can’t act right off the field.

    • cant_teach_speed

      Yeah. This is career over. Not a good enough player to be this stupid lmao

  3. DarkSide830

    what in earth is going on right now. i know its the NFL, but these guys are going crazy.

  4. sportznut1000

    I was just about to say the same thing as all of you but then i read the espn article on this story and saw this quote: “There’s an entire back story to this situation that constitutes one of the most highly provocative situations you can imagine,” said Latimer’s attorney” . . . . . So now im curious what the back story is and will wait before i declare latimers career over

    • Misterants

      Provocative schmovacative. Once he started discharging a weapon in AN APARTMENT BUILDING his career officially ended

      • And his lawyer is trying to make up a provocative situation right this very moment!

    Wow another National Felony league player arrested what a surprise, I guess cross eyed lemon will blame the po -po’s for that to

    • crosseyedlemon

      This probably wouldn’t have made the news if an NFL player wasn’t involved. The cops always go overboard when a celebrity is involved. 5 charges? Why didn’t they add a few more including a social distancing violation to really make themselves look good?

  6. TJECK109

    Man guys have just been cooking up plans the whole time we’ve been locked down… others have been binge watching Netflix

  7. Yep it is

    He will be fine. With such HOF numbers somebody like the JETS or Dumboys will pick him up.

    To think these are the people that get paid this kind of money. I’m not saying all are like this, but this happens way too much to justify how much they get paid.

  9. Marner#16


    About as stupid as you for your handle. Still searching for that pot of gold lol

  10. ashaly2

    How can any of u say that this is ok ,,these what we call men make money u and I dream of and some of u think it’s ok what a bunch of nitwits these guys are They have people who advise and try to tell them that ur life has changed and take advantage of what’s been given to u, not going back to the neighborhood and acting like u did before u got the chance that less then 1 % Get to do. This why it’s called the National Felony League

  11. ashaly2

    Cross eyed lemon was right , if it was a regular guy u wouldn’t here it but the bottom line is that kids look up to some these guys and when a idle messes up the kid maybe disappointed unless they come from the area and say o well if he can do it and not get punished then why can’t I, come on guys 4 NFL players in 3 days that’s bad

    • crosseyedlemon

      As a parent you try to show your kids that “flash and style” alone doesn’t make someone a good role model or Icon.
