Jets' Mims staying positive despite frustration over role
FILE - In this Aug. 14, 2021, file photo, New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims (11) runs the ball in the second half of the team's NFL preseason football game against the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. Mims is used to being the guy making plays, not the one wondering about playing time. Mims has played in two regular-season games — the opener, in which he had a 40-yard catch at Carolina; and last Sunday against Tennessee, when he played 10 snaps on offense with no targets.
