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.
Latimer finished the season with 24 catches for 300 yards on 42 targets as the Giants' No. 4 receiver and primary kick returner. With the emergence of Darius Slayton, and the presence of Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and Kaden Smith, Latimer's best hope is to hang on as a depth receiver and return man again in 2020.
Latimer caught five of seven targets for 44 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-35 overtime victory over Washington. The 27-year-old played 79 total offensive snaps and had five catches for 79 yards and one touchdown across the previous six games, so it was certainly surprising to see him play 41 snaps Sunday with Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard healthy. Latimer worked ahead of rookie Darius Slayton in Week 16, but it's unclear if playing time will split similarly in the season finale.
Latimer caught one of two targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins. Latimer has returned to a depth role in New York's aerial attack with Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton all healthy. He'll reprise his usual role as a kick returner and reserve wideout Week 16 against Washington.
