Denzel Mims got food poisoning from eating salmon sometime in the spring. He vomited for two weeks and lost 20 pounds.
“It took a toll on me, I was at 217. I went down to 197.”
Jets WR Denzel Mims said he lost 20 pounds from a bout with food poisoning that kept him out of OTAs and spring drills. Apparently it was bad salmon.

Mims said he still hasn’t put the weight back on. He currently tips the scales at 208 pounds. But he’s not concerned about getting back to 217 pounds.
“I’m good with my weight now,” Sims said. “If it comes it comes, if it don’t, it don’t.”
We hope he eases his way back to into shape:
