The Seahawks have to pass early and often due to their struggling defense. Adding Brown would be a boost and he has worked with QB Russell Wilson during the offseason. Brown's suspension will end after Week 8, and he is receiving interest from other teams.

Johnson will be back this week for the Steelers unless there is a setback during the practice week. They'll need him against the undefeated Titans on Sunday. With Johnson's return, James Washington is pushed down the pecking order into 'what the heck' flex territory. Johnson is a WR3/flex option if he plays.

New York Jets WR Denzel Mims (hamstring) has a good chance to play in the Week 7 game, according to head coach Adam Gase.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

There's not much to be excited about with the Jets passing game outside of Jamison Crowder. However, Breshad Perriman is healthy and flashing his talent and Mims may return soon. Mims, a second-round pick out of Baylor, has a great size/speed combination and he's got incredible 'my ball' mentality.
