According to Anderson, sources of hers have said that the Jets and Lions are having exploratory trade talks on Mims, and there there's some energy on it. Anderson noted that Mims is open to being traded to the Lions.

Bottom Line: Stay Tuned

Folks, the Lions adding Mims to the mix makes too much sense for this not to happen. He is a big wide receiver who has elite speed, and the vertical jump to go up and get balls. If the Lions get this deal done, Mims would be a good temporary replacement until Williams returns in Week 7.
