In one of his three snaps, Denzel Mims caught a 40-yard pass in the Jets’ Week One loss to Carolina.

Mims hasn’t had another opportunity since.

That will change on Sunday, as head coach Robert Saleh told reporters in his Friday press conference that the receiver will be active for New York’s Week Four matchup with Tennessee.

A second-round pick in last year’s draft, Mims has been inactive for the last two games. But with receivers Elijah Moore and Jeff Smith both ruled out with concussions, Mims is the next man up.

Mims caught 23 passes for 357 yards as a rookie.

Saleh also told reporters receiver Jamison Crowder, who has missed the first three games with a groin injury, is set to make his 2021 debut on Sunday. He had 59 catches for 699 yards with six touchdowns in 2020.

Safety Marcus Maye (ankle) has also been ruled out for Sunday, with Saleh saying the hope is that Maye can return after New York’s bye in Week Six.

  1. Vikings, make a call. Bisi Johnson was a starter last year but really has dropped down the depth chart. But as a former starter he should be worth something and maybe he would get more playing time for the Jets. Win/win/win.

  2. The Jets Offensive playcalling has been bizarre.

    1 – they spent in free agency to bring in 2 WR, yet use Braxton Berrios as their main WR?

    2 – they call a lot of 2 TE sets yet have bad TEs. Why not spend on TE instead of WR if you will misuse them?

    3 – Mims has barely played yet others have started who are weak. Mims can fight for a contested ball, which his QB needs him to do.

    Mims rookie stats we ok last year, at least give him some playing time, its not like the Jets have 3 Jerry Rices ahead of him.
