Sanders would essentially slide into Wes Welker's former role in three-wideout sets, with Latimer filling Sanders' old spot. We can safely assume Sanders will stay on the field in two wideout sets, a formation that could be seen with more regularity in Gary Kubiak's offense.
"I'm very comfortable in doing that because I played in the slot at Pittsburgh and a lot in college so I'm looking forward to that," said Sanders.
Sanders is a big fan of Latimer, a 2014 second-round pick who played just 37 snaps as a rookie.
"On my Twitter, I'm vocal about Cody because I believe in Cody," he said. "Cody is a special player. He has strong hands and is a physical tool. I think this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene. I think he's going to have a big year and I'm happy he's on my team and in our receiver group."
Latimer is going to have a bigger role. How much bigger remains to be seen.
