Watch: Giants WR Cody Latimer does Odell Beckham impression with TD catch

Odell Beckham Jr was unable to play in the final week of the regular season on Sunday, but one of the star wide receiver’s teammates paid tribute to him by making the type of catch we are used to seeing from OBJ.

With the Giants trailing 14-0 late in the second half, Cody Latimer put his team on the board with an incredible one-handed touchdown catch on a pass from Eli Manning.

The catch would have been impressive enough in warmups, but the fact that Latimer was able to get both of his feet down while also maintaining possession with a defender on him is remarkable. That’s the type of grab we have grown used to seeing from Beckham, so it was nice to see someone else step up and give the fans a treat in his absence.

Cody Latimer addresses strip club fight video in statement

Footage of Cody Latimer getting into a physical altercation outside a strip club was released over the weekend, and the Denver Broncos wide receiver took some time on Sunday to downplay the incident.

In a statement he released on Twitter, Latimer said it is disappointing that something that happened so long ago (it was in February) has become a “big story.”

Latimer told TMZ he was trying to deescalate an altercation between people he was with and a bouncer outside an Ohio strip club. The video appeared to show Latimer instigate the fight, as he slapped a bouncer in the face. That resulted in a fight and Latimer being pepper sprayed. You can see the footage here.

The Broncos said they are aware of the situation and that they have already dealt with it internally.

Entering his fourth NFL season, Latimer has primarily played on special teams with the Broncos. The former second-round pick caught just eight passes in 2016.

Video shows Cody Latimer pepper sprayed in fight outside strip club

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer got into a physical altercation outside a strip club back in February, and a new video shows him getting pepper sprayed by a bouncer.

TMZ reports that Latimer was trying to get into Diamonds Cabaret in Ohio with his uncle and a friend, but there was some sort of disagreement. The group apparently asked to speak to a manager, and footage showed Latimer holding his arms out to separate his group from the bouncer. The Bouncer kept hitting Latimer’s hand off his shoulder, and Latimer slapped him in the face. That’s when things got out of hand.

Latimer was pepper sprayed by the bouncer, and the 24-year-old’s uncle appeared to be knocked out. The group left immediately after the fight, and law enforcement sources told TMZ there is no pending investigation into the incident. Latimer told TMZ he was simply trying to defuse the situation and he has moved on to focusing on training camp.

Entering his fourth NFL season, Latimer has primarily played on special teams with the Broncos. The former second-round pick caught just eight passes in 2016.
