  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Draws praise from coach

    Coach Robert Saleh has praised Mims' conditioning and work ethic in training camp, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    Mims' goal is to become a starter, but he'll likely need some injuries to other receivers to clear the way for him to do so. In the meantime, the 2020 second-round pick is putting himself in position to make the Jets' roster by doing everything the coaching staff asks of him. Mims has been working with the special-teams unit to raise his value as a depth receiver while also impressing coaches with his run blocking in offensive drills.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Adding lean muscle

    Mims has been getting bigger and leaner while working with trainer Chad Marr this offseason, Kevin Patra of reports.

    Mims lost 20 pounds due to food poisoning prior to last season and was never able to get going, finishing his second NFL campaign with just eight catches. According to Marr, Mims simultaneously has put on weight yet gotten leaner by adding muscle. With Elijah Moore, Corey Davis and Braxton Berrios all ahead of Mims on the depth chart and the Jets looking into adding another wide receiver through the draft or a trade, the 2020 second-round pick out of Baylor will have to show noticeable improvement in his third season to earn significant snaps on offense.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Just eight catches in second year

    Mims caught eight of 23 targets for 133 yards in 11 games during the 2021 season.

    Mims was frequently in the doghouse, and his on-field play explained why. His routes were rarely crisp, and when Mims managed to get open, he was plagued by drops. It's a major indictment on his development that Mims barely saw the field down the stretch, even as the Jets were routinely without their top two or three wide receivers due to injuries. The 2020 second-round pick out of Baylor has all the physical attributes to excel in the NFL, but he's far from guaranteed a spot on the roster next season after his subpar performance in 2021.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Another goose egg in Week 16

    Mims didn't catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 26-21 win over Jacksonville.

    Mims has been targeted five times over the past two games and came away without a catch. The Jets were hoping the 2020 second-round pick would step up with the team's receiving corps banged up, but Mims has failed to make anything of his recent opportunities.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Another catchless game

    Mims didn't catch any of his three targets in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Dolphins.

    Mims left the game due to cramps but was able to make his return. He has just one catch in three games since returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list, so Mims' lack of production overshadows the allure of New York's favorable Week 16 matchup against Jacksonville.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Returns from cramps

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Exits Sunday's game

    Mims is dealing with cramping and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Prior to his exit from the contest, Mims did not record a catch. In his absence, Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole and Braxton Berrios will head the Jets' Week 15 wideout corps.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Held without a catch by Saints

    Mims failed to catch his only target in Sunday's 30-9 loss to the Saints.

    Mims has just one catch over the past two weeks despite Corey Davis (groin) missing most of one and all of the other, and Elijah Moore (quadriceps) missing all of the latter. There should be ample playing time for Mims down the stretch with Davis done for the year and Moore out until at least Week 17, but Mims' floor remains extremely low due to his own struggles and those of rookie quarterback Zach Wilson.
