Jets WR Denzel Mims has requested a trade for the team, per a statement from his agent Ron Salvin, according to Brian Costello of the New York Post.
In his statement, Salvin wrote as follows:
Mims has been running with the third string group this offseason and played sparingly during the team’s Week 2 preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons.
He has made his frustrations quite clear in recent weeks, both to head coach Robert Saleh and to the media.
The Jets selected Mims in the second round (59th overall) in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 24-year-old has just 31 receptions for 490 yards in his career.
