According to reports, the Dallas Cowboys were among four teams that called New York Jets earlier in preseason to inquire about a trade of Denzel Mims, a third-year wide receiver.
According to Connor Hughes (New York Insider), the Jets wanted a fourth-round draft selection in return for Mims. This was a price no team was willing to pay.
The Cowboys need some wide receiver depth. The Cowboys are currently dealing with several injuries, including the departure of Amari Cooper, former WR1.
The Jets asking price was a 4th round pick.
No team was willing to offer that, so Jets kept Mims.

James Washington is currently on IR for a foot injury. Michael Gallup will not be able to play in Week 1, as he continues his recovery from an ACL tear. WR1 CeeDee lamb (foot) is currently undergoing minor injuries. Backup Noah Brown (toe), is also currently undergoing treatment.
Mims was drafted in the second round of 2020. He did not succeed his first two NFL seasons. He caught just eight passes for 133 yards and zero touchdowns in a career-high eleven games in 2021.
According to reports, the Jets were also approached by the Seahawks, Panthers and Vikings for a possible trade. However, nothing happened.
In 2022, Mims will still be a backup wide receiver option for the Jets’ depth chart.
