The Jacksonville Jaguars signed veteran wide receiver Denzel Mims to a contract on Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not announced by the Jaguars for Mims, who was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday.

Mims was signed by the Steelers on Oct. 3 and placed on their practice squad. He remained there throughout the rest of the season and signed a reserve/futures deal on Jan. 17.

Mims, 26, totaled 42 catches for 676 yards and no touchdowns in 30 career games (15 starts) with the New York Jets from 2020-22. He was selected by the Jets in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Baylor and traded to the Detroit Lions last July before being waived one month later.

In Jacksonville, Mims will have to fight for a roster spot in a receivers room that includes Gabe Davis, Christian Kirk, Devin Duvernay and rookie Brian Thomas Jr.

Also on Thursday, the Jaguars waived wide receiver Kyric McGowan.

McGowan, 24, signed with the Jaguars last Friday. He played in two games with the Washington Commanders in 2022.
