An undrafted, slender pass-rusher out of Middle Tennessee State, Lattimore showed just enough promise at outside linebacker to make the roster last year.
This year, he bulked up and was switched to inside linebacker.
As we know, versatility helps your chances.
Lattimore seemed to have the inside track to a roster spot, but nothing was secured until he picked off Bengals rookie QB Tyler Hansen and returned it 27 yards to put the game out of reach.
Big plays in preseason games earn roster spots.
Lattimore made a big play.
