The Chicago Bears should consider trading for Denzel Mims

A name who was being thrown around as a trade option or potential cut candidate early in the offseason was Denzel Mims. Mims isn’t a lock to help this team, but he’s clearly not being used in New York. Mims showed how good he can be in his final preseason game when he caught seven balls for 102 yards and a touchdown. Since then, he hasn’t been dressing for games.

Mims is a second-round pick out of Baylor. He stands 6’3″ and weighs around 205 pounds. He also has blazing sub-4.4 speed. Adding him to this roster could help unlock routes that some of the current receivers cannot run. He brings more size to the roster but still has speed that guys like Equanimeous St. Brown don’t have.

At this point, a trade for Denzel Mims shouldn’t cost much. This could be a similar trade to the packages I laid out in the Kenny Golladay article. Late-round draft capital or players who are not part of the future could be used in a swap for Mims — a player who is only 25 and still holds plenty of potential. Not to mention, he’s still on his rookie deal but could potentially be an asset for the future of this regime.
