Denzel Mims, a 2020 second-round pick, has requested a trade from the New York Jets.

The wide receiver has been frustrated with a lack of opportunities. Mims' agent, Ron Slavin, met Aug. 6 with Joe Douglas to express concerns. According to sources, Mims also has shared strong feelings with Robert Saleh in private meetings.

"It's just time," Slavin said. "Denzel has tried in good faith, but it is clear he does not have a future with the Jets. Denzel vowed to come back better than ever this season and he worked extremely hard in the offseason to make that happen. Still, he has been given very few opportunities to work with the starting offense and 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 be releasing him. Joe Douglas has always done right by Denzel and we trust that he will make every effort to find him a new home where he can be a contributor."

Mims, 24, has a total of 31 receptions for 490 yards and zero touchdowns in two seasons.
