Denzel Mims doubles down on Philly hate with NSFW comments during gaming session

NFL, Philadelphia Eagles

Jets rookie Denzel Mims made waves in the pre-draft process for his comments on Philadelphia, and now he’s doubling down.

Denzel Mims took himself out of the running as a potential Philadelphia Eagles draft pick thanks to some pre-April comments in which he said he’s scared of Philly. The City of Brotherly Love surely has some rough parts, just like any urban area, but to suggest he’s so scared he can’t play there is rather silly.

At the time, Mims said he wasn’t “familiar with the whole city, there was a lot going on, you see a lot of people that look scary. I’m not part of that. I don’t like that. I had a bad experience going up there that first time.”

Now on the Jets, the Baylor product didn’t back down when asked about his feelings towards Philly during a gaming session.

During a gaming session, New York Jets rookie Denzel Mims dropped some serious insults towards the city of Philadelphia.

Rather than select Mims, the Eagles opted to draft TCU’s Jalen Reagor, and considering the now-New York Jet is unapologetic for his comments, it’s for the better.

Leave it to Call of Duty to bring out the worst in people. The Jets and Eagles don’t even play in the same conference, but the proximity between the cities ought to make Mims a popular jeering target when the two teams finally do meet up. If there’s anything we’ve learned about Philadelphia sports fans over the years, it’s they they don’t forget their drudges.

Conveniently enough, the Jets had a matchup against the Eagles scheduled for the preseason. Unfortunately, though, that game was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as the NFL cut the preseason in half.

Something tells me they’ll find another way to get their message across. Gritty, got anything?
