Cody Latimer predicts a breakout 2015 season with the Denver Broncos

Published Add your comment

The times are changing in Denver with a new boss in town for the Broncos ahead of the 2015 NFL season.

Gary Kubiak has taken over the reigns from John Fox after the Broncos pitiful collapse in the playoffs last year, and will be bringing a fair bit of change to the way that the Denver offense looks on the field.

According to what we have heard so far, it seems like the Broncos will definitely be a lot more run-heavy than they have been in recent years, with Peyton Manning having to use his ageing arm a lot less next year.

Kubiak likes to run the ball, and with both C.J Anderson and Monte Ball in the backfield, the Broncos have a lot of options when it comes to how they move the ball. 

Time To Shine

But it seems like there will be changes in the passing game as well, with Emmanuel Sanders moving inside after his excellent debut season in Denver, with young wideout Cody Latimer taking Sanders' old spot. And Latimer seems intent on holding a breakout party in 2015.

“Last year was a disappointment to myself,” Latimer said yesterday, according to Carmeron Wolfe of the Denver Post. “I hated not being on that field. I took it as an oath of mine. This year I’m going to get on that field. I’m going to study extra and do whatever I need to do.”

Latimer is seemingly going that extra mile now, starting off by joining in quarterback Peyton Manning’s off-season workout at Duke in the absence of veteran Pro Bowler Demaryius Thomas.

“I didn’t have the opportunity to get on the field because I wasn’t doing my job. This year, they’ll know who I am.”

Stepping Up

Everyone knows it’s time for Latimer to change, with head coach Kubiak calling Latimer out to finally make that step up and become an integral part of the Denver Broncos offense..

“It’s time for some of these young guys to step up,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “Can Cody step up and get where he needs to go?”

Hopefully Latimer made enough of an impression on Manning in those workouts for the wily veteran to finally trust him and bring him in to what can be a lethal passing attack.
