Out of all of the Denver Broncos 2018 free agents, Cody Latimer is the one they should absolutely keep around.
The Denver Broncos free agent class of 2018 is a rather weak one and looking over the list I really only see one name that the team should target to re-sign and that is Wide Receiver and special teams ace Cody Latimer.
The former second-round pick in 2014 has mostly been a special teams contributor and teams don’t typically re-sign those players, but Latimer isn’t a typical special teams contributor. He is a special teams star.
Add in the fact that he is just 25 years old and finally starting to find his legs as a wide receiver and you have a strong candidate for your number three guy on the field. After being inactive from Weeks 4-7, Latimer returned to the field and began contributing as a wide receiver. He has tallied 16 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown.
Latimer should also be rather inexpensive to keep around, so why not keep some continuity on special teams and see where he can grow in the offense now that things appear to finally be clicking for him?
