The New York Jets have made a number of adjustments of their second 12 months below head coach Robert Saleh, and it’s attainable that one other one — involving extensive receiver Denzel Mims — might be on the way in which.
Will Denzel Mims be traded?
Sources say that there appears to be a disconnect between the entrance workplace and training workers because it pertains to Mims and his future with the Jets. Whereas the entrance workplace believes within the second-round choose and desires the receiver to be a part of the offense, the teaching workers has been down on Mims since final summer time.
If Mims have been to be traded, hypothesis is that the compensation could be barely lower than what the New England Patriots acquired in return for N’Keal Harry — a 2019 first-round choose — who was traded to the Chicago Bears for a conditional sixth-round choose that would change into a fifth-rounder primarily based on manufacturing.
Mims has had a disappointing begin to his NFL profession thus far. After two seasons within the league, Mims has been hampered by each accidents and poor on-field performances. In his first season with the staff after being drafted within the second spherical, Mims was solely in a position to play for 9 video games. In these 9 video games, he amassed a lackluster 23 catches.
In 2021, though technically wholesome, he discovered himself on the skin trying in and solely caught eight passes. Granted, the quarterback play was fairly inconsistent final season, with rookie Zach Wilson nonetheless getting acclimated to the NFL.
Heading into his third 12 months now, Mims has only 490 career yards and is but to catch his first landing within the NFL.
What makes the Mims’ state of affairs particularly troublesome is the caliber of WRs that have been drafted in the identical 12 months as him. Fellow second-round picks like Tee Higgins, Michael Pittman Jr., and Chase Claypool have all gone on to seek out success with their respective NFL franchises.
