The NY Jets have seen considerable changes to their roster over the last few years. In fact, only three players remain from the Todd Bowles era in New York, and two of them might be gone after this season.

General manager Joe Douglas has done his best to reshape the roster to his liking, but at just 4-12, the Jets likely aren't done making significant changes.

There are a number of players on the roster who might very well be playing their final game with the Jets this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Some have spent a few years with the organization while others are trending toward being one-and-done.

Let's take a look at seven Jets who are probably playing their last game with the franchise in Week 18.

1. Denzel Mims, WR, NY Jets

Many of the players on this list are pending free agents who the Jets might just opt to let walk this offseason. That isn't the case for the first player on our list.

Few players around the entire NFL have seen their stock drop as far as Denzel Mims has this season. It's gotten so bad that, despite the Jets being down their top three wide receivers last week, Mims still couldn't find his way onto the field for a single snap.

The former second-round pick finds himself stuck behind the likes of Jeff Smith and D.J. Montgomery on the depth chart, and it's hard to blame the Jets given just how much of a liability Mims has been when on the field.

The Jets will likely carry Mims into training camp and have him compete for a roster spot, but barring any complete offseason turnaround, it's hard to see him actually making the team.

It's not a guarantee, but I would be surprised if Denzel Mims played another game for the Jets past this season. In fact, there's probably a better chance he doesn't actually play this Sunday than of him being on the roster next year.
