Lions waiving Denzel Mims (ankle/calf)

The Detroit Lions are waiving wide receiver Denzel Mims.

What It Means:

Mims injured his calf while in rehab for an ankle injury he sustained in practice. Last month, the Lions acquired Mims and a 2025 seventh-round pick from the New York Jets in exchange for a 2025 conditional sixth-round draft pick. Mims' release could open up more playing time for Marvin Jones, Josh Reynolds, and Kalif Raymond.

Mims, a 2020 second-round pick, caught 42 passes on 92 targets for 676 scoreless yards in 30 games for the Jets over his first three seasons.
