Denver Broncos News

Cody Latimer, Signs with Washington

Latimer agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: 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) Trey Quinn (concussion) and Kelvin Harmon on the roster that were all drafted by the team in the past two seasons. He figures to battle Steven Sims for work as the team's primary kick and punt return man as well.

Drew Lock, Unlikely to be tested in camp

Following the signing of journeyman Jeff Driskel as the presumptive QB2, Denver appears content to stand pat at quarterback, Benjamin Allbright of KOA News Radio reports.

Analysis: Lock was mostly solid, but showed flashes of real promise down the stretch during his 4-1 tenure as the Broncos' starting quarterback. That didn't prevent some from calling for Denver to bring in a veteran to push Lock in 2020. That hasn't happened and, though Driskel has the athleticism to complement Lock's style, his 1-7 career records as a starter -- albeit on some bad teams -- is unlikely to trigger a camp battle. It is possible that the Broncos look for a developmental quarterback in the late rounds of the draft, but everything is trending toward a full-season audition for Lock in 2020.

Isaiah McKenzie, Stays with Buffalo

McKenzie re-signed with the Bills on Tuesday, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

Analysis: McKenzie served as Buffalo's No. 3 wide receiver for parts of last season, but he'll be no higher than No. 4 after the team traded for Stefon Diggs. With John Brown and Cole Beasley locking down the other top-three spots, McKenzie will be left to compete against Duke Williams, Robert Foster and Andre Roberts for depth jobs.

Jeff Heuerman, Faces threat from fellow Buckeye

The Broncos' signing of Vannett could place Heuerman's roster spot in jeopardy, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Analysis: Heuerman had a nice game or two as an underneath receiver for the Broncos in 2019, but has never really lived up to being the tight end Denver drafted him to be out of Ohio State in 2015. Now, it would seem as though his TE2 role will be taken by Vannett, who was drafted by Seattle out of Ohio State in 2016. Vannett is mostly known as a blocker, but he put together some nice receiving performances in 2018. With Noah Fant leading the way and cheap, promising youngsters like Andrew Beck and Austin Fort at the bottom of the roster, it would seem like there's only room for one of Vannett or Heuerman on the team. Cutting Heuerman would result in a cap hit of $500,000, but a savings of $3.9 million.

Royce Freeman, Supplanted by Gordon

The acquisition for Melvin Gordon leaves Freeman on the outside looking in in Denver's 1-2 punch, Sean Keeler of The Denver Post reports.

Analysis: There were whispers that Denver was looking for an upgrade over Freeman in free agency, but the investment in Gordon is at least a small shock. Freeman emerged as a solid receiver out of the backfield in 2019, but has never really lived up to his billing has a big, savvy bell-cow back, averaging just 3.88 yards per carry in two seasons. His uber-efficient 2018 season aside, Gordon has averaged just 3.80 yards per carry during his career, but is a more dynamic receiver and has at least shown the ability to be a big-time runner in spurts. Gordon's contract leaves little hope for Freeman to win back the RB2 role in camp and it wouldn't be a total shock to see Freeman traded if Denver adds another back in the draft.
