WR Denzel Mims

Another young disgruntled player comes out of New York. Prior to the start of the season, Denzel Mims voiced his concerns about his role with the New York Jets. The 6’3, 207-pound 2nd round pick from 2020 wants his talents utilized.

Ironically, Denzel Mims might be getting his chance with the Jets this weekend as they have another wide receiver who appears to want out. Nonetheless, the Seahawks were one of the teams to inquire about Mims in the offseason. Obviously, nothing came to fruition. However, I would assume Mims is still unhappy with his role.

The Fit: Filling a void in the WR room

It isn’t surprising that John Schneider wasn’t willing to move a 4th round pick. He has a way of getting talent at a very cheap price. Nonetheless, it might be worth it for Seattle to make another call to New York and see if they will budge on their starting price. With no true number 3 wide receiver, Mims can fill a major void.

Mims clearly wants to play more. Well, in Seattle he will be given that chance. Thrown into the mix with Dee Eskridge and Marquise Goodwin, Denzel Mims will have a good chance of earning his spot on this roster. Pete Carroll is all about competition. He is the master motivator. I believe he and Mims would be a good fit for one another.
