The trade chatter around New York Jets wide receiver Denzel Mims simply won’t die.

Especially considering through the first two games of the season the talented wideout has been a healthy inactive. If they won’t use him, there is a case to be made that perhaps they should deal him.

Denzel Mims Gets Shipped off to the Colts

Kristopher Knox has a running article for Bleacher Report that breaks down the top players on the trade block. Each week players can move up and down the list based on a variety of factors.

Mims is now the “top wideout” on the list and a new suitor has emerged.

“The Indianapolis Colts would also be wise to take a chance on Mims. Indy has just one passing touchdown and ranks dead last in scoring offense through two weeks. At this point, the Colts need to consider all receiver options.”

There have been a wide array of teams discussed over the last few months, but the Colts haven’t come up.

Right now their current leading receiver is Ashton Dulin with 125 receiving yards. Who?! Exactly.

They have two very nice options on the team: Michael Pittman Jr and rookie Alec Pierce (who has yet to register a statistic yet this season).

Mims is another player who shares that in common with Pierce. With the current construct of the Jets receiving group, Mims can’t get on the field.

However, if you insert him into an offense with opportunity and a former NFL MVP at quarterback in Matt Ryan, that could be a winning combination.

Candidly what do the Colts have to lose? They’re currently 0-1-1 on the season and have struggled offensively through the first two games of the season.

Mims could provide a spark and perhaps a long-term answer at the wide receiver position.

No specific compensation was discussed, however, the Jets asking price is a fourth-round draft choice. Knox suggested that because the team has no need for him “their price should be much lower.”

Weighing Risk vs. Reward on Denzel Mims

General manager Joe Douglas since he has been running the Jets has been a line drawn in the sand kind of guy. In other words, once he says something, he sticks to it.

With the Mims price leaked as a fourth-round target, it seems hard to believe Douglas would just sell him for anything less than that.

Especially since the former Baylor product has been a loyal soldier. Outside of his public trade request on social media and some questions at the presser, Mims hasn’t ruffled any feathers within the organization.

Until he does that there doesn’t seem to be any sense of urgency to make a trade as soon as possible. The blunt truth is the Jets have him under contract for the next two seasons at an incredibly affordable rate.

Unless they are either blown away by an offer or get what they’re looking for, the Jets may simply hold pat here. Mims is still uber talented and provides fantastic injury insurance if anything happens at the position.

A good example of that is veteran Corey Davis randomly popping up on the injury report on Thursday, September 22.

The surprise injury listing likely suggests it happened during practice. It is unclear how serious the injury is but it serves as a constant reminder that having depth at wide receiver isn’t the worst thing in the world.

Oakland Athletics | Athletics beat Mets, rough up Jacob deGrom

OAKLAND — The Athletics dealt the New York Mets a costly loss in a pennant race Saturday and did it against star right-handed pitcher Jacob deGrom.

The Athletics gave deGrom a harder time than he’d seen in his previous nine starts and parlayed clutch hitting and solid defense for a 10-4 win at the at the Coliseum.

The Athletics improved to 56-96 before a crowd of 16,041, many of them Mets fans. New York, which began the day with a 2 1/2-game lead over the Atlanta Braves in the National League East, fell to 96-57.

By the time he was finished after four innings, deGrom (5-3) trailed 5-4 and surrendered season highs in hits (six), earned runs (five) and walks (four). He struck out five and threw 80 pitches, 49 for strikes, giving way to Trevor Williams to start the sixth inning.

In his previous start, deGrom become the only major league pitcher to strike out 13 batters with no walks in five innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ken Waldichuck (1-2) made it through the fifth and got his first big league win before Austin Pruitt took over. He gave up five hits, four earned runs with no walks and four strikeouts.

While the A’s were able to add on five runs against the New York bullpen after deGrom’s exit, A’s relievers Pruitt (two innings), A.J. Puk and Tyler Cyr blanked the Mets over the final four innings.

The Athletics had home runs by Seth Brown, his 24th, and Connor Capel, his second. Capel had a homer, triple and single in his last three at-bats. For the Mets, Pete Alonso hit his 38th home run of the season, with Mark Vientos getting his first career home run.

A two-out ground ball single up the middle by Brown in the sixth against Joely Rodriguez brought home Vimael Machin and gave the Athletics a 7-4 lead. In the bottom of the seventh, Nick Allen bounced a single to right to score Capel, who tripled to open the inning against Adam Ottavino.

Capel’s home run, his first with the A’s,  gave Oakland a 6-4 lead in the fifth and came against Williams. His two-run single in the eighth against Trevor May brought in the last two insurance runs.

Vientos tied the score 4-4 in the second with his first career home run, an opposite field shot against Waldichuck, with the Athletics regaining the lead in the third on Brown’s home run to dead center field against deGrom.

The Athletics, down three to deGrom after the top of the first, managed put four on the board in the bottom of the inning as the Mets’ right-hander struggled with his control. Machin hit a one-out single, followed by walks to Sean Murphy and Brown.
