1 wide receiver for the New York Jets,

Denzel Mims appears to be ready for a fresh start away from the Garden State.

Mims formally submitted a trade request to the Jets today, which was made public by her agent in an official statement.

Per agent Ron Slavin, the Mims have requested his release but are denied by Jets general manager Joe Douglas.

“We think a trade is our only option at the moment, as the Jets have told us repeatedly that they will not release him.

And we believe he will do everything in his power to find another team where Denzel can contribute," Slavin added.

NFL fans are mixed as to whether mimes are desirable as a business target.

Some believe that if he can't make the Jets' lineup he might not be good enough to play for them,

While others think he'd be the perfect addition to their rosters:

In the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Denzel Mims looked rock solid as a rookie,

Recording 23 receptions for 356 yards in nine games.

But a combination of injuries, poor play and misfortune limited Mims to eight receptions for 133 yards in 2021.

And in the season that followed, the Jets made several moves to signal that they were ready to move on from him.

But it appears he won't be able to reach that level with the Jets.

Where do you think the mimes will play this season?
