  • Steelers' Denzel Mims: Sticking around Pittsburgh

    Mims signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the team's official website reports.

    Mims joined Pittsburgh's practice unit in October, failing to appear in a game during the 2023 campaign. The wide receiver will now stick around for the offseason and attempt to crack the team's initial 53-man roster ahead of the 2024 season.

  • Denzel Mims: Joins Steelers' practice squad

    Pittsburgh signed Mims (calf) to its practice squad Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Mims was waived by Detroit prior to Week 1, but he has now found another opportunity with a different team. With Diontae Johnson (hamstring) still on injured reserve, the Steelers are thin at wide receiver behind George Pickens.

  • Denzel Mims: Waived with injury settlement

    The Lions waived Mims (calf) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Detroit traded for Mims just ahead of training camp, but he couldn't stay on the field due to an ankle issue and then sustained a calf injury while rehabbing. The 2020 second-round pick will now have a chance to choose his next destination should he clear waivers.

  • Lions' Denzel Mims: Heads to injured reserve

    Mims (calf) reverted to the Lions' injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Mims dealt with an ankle injury prior to hurting his calf, a combination that has sent him to IR. He'll thus have to miss the entire 2023 season unless he and the Lions agree to terms of an injury settlement. Prior to getting shipped from New York to Detroit in July, the 2020 second-round pick recorded 42 catches in 30 games across three seasons with the Jets.

  • Denzel Mims: Being waived with injury

    The Lions are waiving Mims (calf) due to an injury sustained while rehabbing from a recent ankle issue, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Mims is reportedly now dealing with a calf injury, and by waiving him prior to the start of the regular season Detroit can avoid dealing a conditional late-round pick to the Jets. The 2020 second-round pick will revert to the Lions' injured reserve list assuming he clears waivers, ending his 2023 campaign unless he can reach an injury settlement.

  • Lions' Denzel Mims: Resumes practicing

    Mims (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports.

    Mims, who joined the Lions via trade from the Jets earlier in training camp, left practice with an ankle injury last week but looks to be back to full health. The 2020 second-round pick is competing to earn a spot on Detroit's 53-man roster.

  • Lions' Denzel Mims: Injures ankle

    Mims injured his ankle during Saturday's practice, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Mims came up limping after getting hit hard by safety Tracy Walker. It is not clear if Mims will be able to return in time for Detroit's preseason opener Aug. 11 against the Giants.

  • Lions' Denzel Mims: Sent to Detroit in pick swap

    The Lions acquired Mims from the Jets on Wednesday, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports. New York will receive a 2025 conditional sixth-round draft pick while sending back a 2025 seventh-round pick to Detroit, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

    In an effort to drum up last-minute trade interest, the Jets made it public earlier Wednesday that they would cut Mims if a trade didn't materialize. The Cowboys were one of the teams linked to a Mims trade, but Detroit closed the deal, giving the 2020 second-round receiver a needed change of scenery. Buried on the depth chart in New York, the 6-foot-3, 207-pound Mims caught just 42 passes for 676 scoreless yards in 30 games over his first three seasons. With the Lions, Mims will try to carve out a role on the perimeter, where he'll compete with the likes of Marvin Jones, Josh Reynolds, and Kalif Raymond while Jameson Williams is suspended for the first six weeks of the season.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: Likely done in New York

    The Jets are expected to waive Mims prior to the start of the season unless the team can find a trade partner for him, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Mims, a 2020 second-round pick, hasn't yet scored an NFL touchdown and is evidently on the outside looking in of a crowded receiver room featuring Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Corey Davis, Mecole Hardman (groin) and Randall Cobb (ankle) ahead of him on the depth chart. Barring the possibility of the Jets negotiating something along the lines of a late-round pick exchange, Mims will likely find himself a free agent in the near future. In 10 appearances last season, Mims secured just 11 of 25 targets for 186 yards. He hasn't helped his case for sticking around in New York by offering limited contributions on special teams.

  • Jets' Denzel Mims: On wrong side of roster bubble?

    Mims faces an uphill battle as he tries to make the Jets' 53-man roster, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    Mims has yet to score a touchdown since being selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Jets, and he will need to impress in camp and preseason just to make the roster in 2023. Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Corey Davis, Mecole Hardman (abdomen) and Randall Cobb (ankle) all appear to be comfortably ahead of Mims, and undrafted rookie Jason Brownlee is pushing him for the sixth spot on the wide receiver depth chart. Mims' lack of contributions on special teams won't help his case for securing one of the final spots on the team.
