Released by Washington Football Team

Gets placed on exempt list

Latimer (personal) was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Monday, Mark Maske of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: 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.

Will report to camp

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.

Analysis: 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.

Arrested Saturday

Latimer was arrested Saturday 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 Athleticreports.

Analysis: 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 reported, "We are aware of the situation and have informed the NFL League Office. We will continue to gather more information and have no further comment at this time."

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.

Modest role

Latimer finished the season with 24 catches for 300 yards on 42 targets as the team's No. 4 receiver and primary kick returner.

Analysis: 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.

Secures second touchdown

Latimer caught five of seven targets for 44 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-35, overtime victory over Washington.

Analysis: 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

Dec 23, 2019 9:59 AM EST

One catch in loss

Latimer caught one of two targets for 21 yards during Sundays' 36-20 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: Latimer has resumed occupying a depth spot 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.

Dec 16, 2019 9:41 AM EST

Hauls in deep pass

Latimer notched a 43-yard reception on three targets in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Latimer enjoyed his highest snap count (33) since Week 8 since Golden Tate (concussion) was inactive. It's unsettled whether Tate will be ready for Week 14's clash against the Eagles, and if he is, Latimer will bump back to a reserve role.

Dec 2, 2019 9:54 AM EST

Expected to start for Tate

Latimer likely will replace Golden Tate (concussion) in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Packers, Tom Rock of Newsday reports.

Analysis: A spot in the starting lineup doesn't offer any guarantees in terms of workload, as Latimer technically has started nine of his 10 games this season, averaging 2.9 targets and 30.4 offensive snaps in those contests. He may even split the No. 3 receiver role with Cody Core or Da'Mari Scott, as the Giants have been hesitant to give Latimer more than half the snaps on offense even when they've been forced to play without Tate or Sterling Shepard. The safe bets for Week 13 targets are Shepard and Darius Slayton.

Nov 29, 2019 11:48 AM EST

Hauls in one pass

Latimer recorded a seven-yard reception in Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: Sterling Shepard (concussion) returned to the contest, hindering any hopes for Latimer to bump up on the depth chart. The 27-year-old avoided being a healthy scratch -- Bennie Fowler wasn't as fotunate -- partly because he's a valued kick returner.

Nov 25, 2019 7:54 AM EST

Can't capitalize on opportunity

Latimer failed to bring in his only target during Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: Even with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee) sidelined, Latimer operated as an afterthought in New York's aerial attack. The 2014 second-round pick isn't worth fantasy consideration in all but the deepest of leagues.

Oct 11, 2019 12:20 PM EST

May play increased role

Latimer could play a key role on offense versus the Patriots on Thursday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Analysis: Latimer appears primed for a regular role in New York's aerial attack with Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Evan Engram (knee) both ruled out for Week 6, though it remains to be seen whether he'll manage to capitalize on that opportunity against the Patriots' defense. He'll mix in with Darius Slayton and Cody Core for work behind top wideout Golden Tate.

Oct 9, 2019 10:48 AM EST

Targeted once in loss

Latimer failed to bring in his lone target during Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Latimer was heavily involved in New York's offense during the first two weeks of the season -- he hauled in six catches for 104 yards across that span -- but he's now gone two straight games without a catch. However, with Sterling Shepard (concussion) in danger of missing time, according to Dan Duggan of The Athletic, Latimer appears to be facing similar opportunity to what he saw during the first weeks of the season. If Shepard is forced to sit out Thursday's game against the Patriots, Latimer will likely mix in with Darius Slayton for key snaps at wide receiver behind Golden Tate.

Oct 7, 2019 1:34 PM EST

Silent in win

Latimer was unable to log a statistic over 27 of 78 possible offensive snaps (35 percent) in Sunday's win over Washington.

Analysis: Latimer was coming off a concussion that forced him to miss Week 3's contest the Buccaneers. Before missing time with the concussion, the 26-year-old caught six of 12 targets for 104 yards in the Giants' first two games.

Sep 30, 2019 3:18 PM EST

Cleared for Week 4

Latimer has cleared the concussion protocol.

Analysis: After upgrading to full practice participation Thursday, the veteran wideout has clearance to play in Sunday's game against Washington. Latimer should have a spot in three-wide formations, but he won't necessarily handle an every-down role.

Sep 27, 2019 9:49 AM EST

Puts in full practice

Latimer (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Although Latimer technically fit in enough reps to be considered a full participant on the Giants' second Week 4 injury report, he's still subject to approval from an independent neurologist in order to play Sunday versus the Redskins. On a positive note, Thursday's development gives him plenty of time to do so.

Sep 26, 2019 10:31 AM EST

Bumps up to limited

Latimer (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Latimer remains embedded in the concussion protocol, as evidenced by him wearing a non-contact jersey in this session, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. While the activity at practice marks his first since suffering a concussion Week 2, Latimer will require clearance from an independent neurologist to take the field on game day. And in a skill-position group beset by injuries to Saquon Barkley (ankle), Bennie Fowler (hamstring) and Russell Shepard (foot), Latimer will have a prime chance to make an impact, when available.

Sep 25, 2019 11:15 AM EST

Ruled out

Latimer (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Latimer's absence carries a bit less weight with Sterling Shepard cleared to return from his own concussion. Of course, the Giants still have serious depth issues, as Golden Tate has two weeks remaining on a suspension and Bennie Fowler (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Sep 20, 2019 9:35 AM EST

Still sidelined Thursday

Latimer (concussion) was a non-participant at practice Thursday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Latimer was forced out Week 2 with a concussion, and the only evidence he's made progress through the protocol was some activity on a side field Thursday, per Tom Rock of Newsday. Elsewhere in the receiving corps, No. 1 wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) was a full participant, Bennie Fowler joined Latimer on the side and Darius Slayton (hamstring) put in another limited showing.
