The Washington Football Team has released Latimer. Per NFL.com's Grant Gordon, Latimer was on the Commissioner's Exempt List following a May arrest in Colorado that resulted in five charges. Latimer had been signed by Washington back in March after spending the last two seasons with the Giants.
Latimer (personal) was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Monday, Mark Maske of The Washington Post reports. Latimer is facing eight charges, including four felonies, for an alleged incident in Douglas County, Colo. in May. Late last week, he appeared in court remotely and was expected to report to Washington's team facilities Tuesday, but the latter won't come the pass. When (or if) he's allowed to join his teammates, Latimer will be competing for one of the last wide receiver spots on the roster.
Latimer appeared in court remotely Friday on charges related to his May arrest and is expected to report to training camp Tuesday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Latimer was booked on five charges, but court records indicate he is now facing eight, including four felonies. His status remains murky heading into the season, but it appears at this point he will report to camp per usual. He has played the last two seasons with the Giants and recorded a career-high 24 receptions for 300 yards in 2019.
Latimer was arrested Saturday in Douglas County, Colo. on charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Latimer, who signed an offseason deal with the Redskins after spending the previous two seasons with the Giants, is being held on a $25,000 bond. A Redskins team official relayed that the organization is aware of Latimer's arrest and will continue to gather more information about the incident before issuing further comment on the matter.
Latimer agreed to terms Wednesday on a contract with the Redskins, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Latimer served as the Giants' fourth receiver and primary kick return man in 2019, finishing the season with 24 catches for 300 yards. He'll likely assume a depth role for the Redskins next season, especially with youngsters Terry McLaurin (concussion), Steven Sims, Trey Quinn (concussion) and Kelvin Harmon on the roster.
