ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Emmanuel Sanders is still learning his way around town. That's not stopping him from putting out a big welcome mat for rookie wide receiver Cody Latimer.
Sanders, who signed a three-year, $15 million free agent deal in Denver less than two months ago, said he's glad the Broncos drafted a wide receiver in the second round last weekend.
Both Sanders and Latimer are expected to replace some of what Eric Decker brought to the Broncos before leaving for the New York Jets in free agency.
At 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Sanders brings speed, separation and versatility to the mix and could replace Decker's 87 catches.
At a shade under 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, Latimer has a mix of size, speed and strength in the mold of Denver's Demaryius Thomas.
