Getty New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh walks across the football field during an NFL game.
As we head into the 2022 NFL Draft, all rosters are bracing for an influx of talent.
Although at the time of the draft not only new players will come in, but also old players will come out. With that thought in mind, the New York Jets appear ready to hit the eject button on a once-promising stud.

Connor Hughes of The Athletic published an email segment this week in which he addressed the future of third-year wide receiver Denzel Mims.
He said “the staff is ready to move on” after a disappointing 2021 campaign. One of the main reasons for that is because of “your gentleman, I don’t care about attitude in practice and games.”
That apparently “rubbed” a lot of people in the building the wrong way, and Hughes says a split this offseason is probably best for both sides.
Mims is still only 24 years old and has two super cheap years left on his rookie deal. The former Baylor product originally entered the league as the 59th overall pick in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft.
In two seasons with the Jets, he has only played in 20 games due to injuries, COVID and being benched as a healthy scratch on several occasions:
31 catches 490 yards 15.8 receiving yards
Also, interestingly enough, Mims has yet to find the end zone during his short NFL career thus far.
What the hell is its commercial value?

Mims showed some flashes in his rookie season, but that didn’t hold up as he enjoyed a huge sophomore slump in 2021.
Hughes says he got to see the Greens and Whites “trading” the talented wide receiver on the “last day of the draft.”
In terms of what they will get? Don’t hold your breath because it doesn’t look like it has much value.
However, one creative way they could maximize their value is with a potential player-for-player trade, says Hughes.
“Basically, he trades Mims for another disappointing first or second round pick, hoping that a change of scenery for both of them will get their careers back on track.”
Here are some interesting names that might make sense:
Jeff Okudah, cornerback, Detroit Lions
He has only played 10 games in two seasons. There is a new regime with Detroit that did not draft him at 23 years old.
K’Lavon Chaisson, EDGE, Jacksonville Jaguars
He has only missed two games in two seasons He is set to have his third different head coach in three seasons Age 22 (he will be 23 at the start of the 2022 season)
Jalen Reagor, wide receiver, Philadelphia Eagles
64 receptions, 695 yards and three touchdowns in two years 23 years
Travis Etienne, running back, Jaguars
He missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury 23 years
Laviska Shenault Jr, wide receiver, Jaguars
