Cody Latimer leaves Broncos to sign with Giants

The player who will rejoin the team is defensive end Kerry Wynn.

A defensive end who occasionally moved inside during his first four years with the Giants, he likely will play that position in the new 3-4 scheme.

In other free agent news, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that the Giants have expressed interest in former Bills receiver Marcus Easley.

The Giants agreed to a one-year deal with cornerback B. He also played a large role on the Broncos special teams.

Wynn, a 6-5, 264-pound end, played in 15 games for the Giants last season with three starts at right defensive end when Olivier Vernon was out with an ankle injury.

He was waived by the Chicago Bears prior to the season opener and signed with the Cleveland Browns in late December. Webb was released by the Browns last week. He's appeared in 49 regular season games with 10 starts.

Latimer announced on Monday afternoon that he had ageeed to a deal to play for the Giants.

There hasn't necessarily been a mass exodus of players going out of Denver this offseason, but one of the league's worst offenses has lost yet another piece with Cody Latimer heading to the New York Giants.

After a dominant junior season at IN where he finished with 72 catches for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns, Latimer made a decision to forgo his senior year to enter the pros. When he was drafted, Latimer was projected to emerge as the team's No. 3 receiver but he failed to ever live up to that expectation. He has caught a total of only 35 passes in his career but has been a strong special-teams gunner and averaged 24.4 yards on 18 kickoff returns.

His 19 catches were more than he'd caught in the previous three seasons combined. He made seven starts for Arizona previous year and 13 in 2016.
