Watson, meanwhile, wishes to be traded and has been linked with potential buyers such as the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins but is still facing 22 lawsuits alleging acts of sexual assault and misconduct and 10 criminal complaints.

Denzel Mims still getting very strange treatment from Jets .
Figure this one out. The Jets are rebuffing trade inquiries for Mims, but they also are not giving him any playing time.Mims has seen just three snaps in the first two weeks of the season, and was inactive for Week 2. Mims is likely to be inactive for Week 3 as well, but according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Jets remain high on the young receiver and have even turned down trade inquiries.
