Broncos WR Cody Latimer struggled to pick up offense in 2014
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer didn't see much action in his rookie season, partially because of the complex offense Denver ran, according to the Denver Post.

"It took me too long to actually catch on," Latimer said. "I was in the playbook, but I could have done even more. When I actually got it, it was too late. It was just way different (than college). I would know the play, then Peyton would change it. Then I'd get to thinking too much and play slower."

Latimer had just two receptions for 23 yards last season.

"They kept me going when I was at practice getting yelled at with people saying I didn't know what I was doing. They said repeatedly, 'Your time will come,' " Latimer said. "They said I had it in me, that I have to go out there and show the world. Part of my grind is making them look good."

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play more slot this season
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said he was informed by coaches that he will slide into the slot receiver role vacated by Wes Welker, per Pro Football Talk. 

Sanders, who is coming off a Pro Bowl campaign in which he caught 101 passes for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns -- all career highs -- will make room for Cody Latimer on the outside. 

"Cody is a special player. He has strong hands and is a physical tool. I think this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene," Sanders said.

Broncos' Peyton Manning teases Demaryius Thomas for skipping workout
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

As expected, Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas skipped QB Peyton Manning's offseason passing workout at Duke University last week.

Thomas was tagged by the team, keeping him off the free agent market, and he's in the process of negotiating a long-term contract with the Broncos. He intends to work out on his own until the deal is done. 

Manning spent the week throwing to Broncos pass catchers Owen Daniels, Andre Caldwell, Emmanuel Sanders, Cody Latimer and Virgil Green

Manning poked fun at Thomas by photoshopping him into a group picture, taken at Duke after a workout.

Broncos WR Cody Latimer ready to step up in year two
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer is ready to take on a bigger role in year two with the team, reports the team's offical website.

"I feel like I’m ready, especially coming in a new offense, everybody gets a clean slate so we’re all starting from Day 1, and it’ll be exciting," he said. "I get to work with Peyton coming up soon, so he’ll be able to get me more into the offense and getting my learning curve, taking it to the next level."

Latimer is preparing to work with Peyton and Eli Manning at their yearly workout session next week.

"It’s my first time there, so it should be fun. I know we’re going to be working, studying, probably watching film and running routes," Latimer said. "It’s a good connection. It’s an early head start, in other words, to something that should be great. So that’s what I’m looking forward to, getting our timing connection and probably learning off of him and maybe learning something of the offense and things like that."

Latimer is cognizant of the fact that the team expects big things from him this upcoming season.

"I know it’s a big opportunity and I’ve got to make that leap for myself and our organization. They expect big things out of me; they drafted me in the second round, they expect me to produce so I feel like I’ve got to own up to that and make it happen.”

Broncos expect big jump in year two for WR Cody Latimer
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

The Broncos new head coach Gary Kubiak expects second-year wide receiver Cody Latimer to see more playing time in 2015, per the team's official website.

"I think it’s time for him to make a big jump, not just a little jump," Kubiak said from the media availability at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix. "I think it’s time for him to make a big jump and how we end up being built at receiver—I know that [WR] Wes [Welker] is still [a] free [agent] and there are some things that still need to pan out—but obviously his play time is fixing to pick up and it needs to pick up. We need him to make a big jump."

Kubiak thought highly of the young wideout when he was entering the 2014 draft.

"He came by the office the other day. I thought a lot about him coming out [of college]. I spent a lot of time with him in Baltimore," Kubiak said, reflecting on last year's draft. "We were very interested in him going into the draft, so I knew him very well. It’s funny. I told him in Baltimore, ‘Hey, we might not end up with you, but our paths may cross some day.’ He walked into my office and said, ‘Hell, I didn’t know it would be this quick.’ He’s a fine player. He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice."

As a rookie, Latimer finished the season playing in eight games with only two receptions for 23 yards.
