New York Jets WR Denzel Mims has requested a trade, per his agent Ron Slavin.
In his statement, Salvin wrote as follows:
“It’s just time. Denzel has tried in good faith but it’s clear he does not have a future with the Jets. Denzel has vowed to come back better than ever this season and he worked extremely hard this offseason to make that happen. Still, he has been given no opportunities to work with the starting offense to get into a groove with them. We feel at this point a trade is our only option, since the Jets have repeatedly told us they will not release him. Joe Douglas has always done right by Denzel and we trust that he will do everything in his power to find another team where Denzel can be a contributor.”
He has made his frustrations quite clear in recent weeks, both to head coach Robert Saleh and to the media.
