Becton is clearly in the Jets plans as a starting tackle for 2022

My view on the tackle situation is that Becton is a dog who’s making Saleh look like a weak fish, and now Becton hasn’t showed up to practice and the only clip we’re seeing after a universally lauded draft is Saleh—as he’s been doing for roughly 16 months now—having to answer questions about Mekhi Becton not being in attendance for the Jets. Saleh straight-up mocked Becton yesterday by begging him to show up. 

Saleh needs him, what else is he going to do?

I don’t think Saleh needs Becton as much as Saleh needs a right tackle who will show up every day and not be a disaster. It’s Douglas who needs Becton to work out

From last night's NY Post - Becton is still rehabing and Saleh wants him at OTAs.

“We’d love you back here, buddy,” Saleh said, looking into the camera. “We’ll take care of you.”

Becton is awaiting the birth of his first child in Dallas, according to sources. He is expected to come to New Jersey after the child is born.

“You want all your guys to be here,” Saleh said. “It’s voluntary. But I know he’s working his tail off in Dallas. We have tabs on him. We know exactly what he’s doing and we know where he is within his rehab.”

After this draft and last year’s (assuming wilson doesn’t totally suck), i think douglas is on pretty safe ground.  If the worst case scenario is that they finagle the tackle spot this year and either overpay in FA or draft one next year, then as time passes i think the book on douglas will be that he grew into the position and improved over time.  And for all we know mims could actually contribute too, i have more faith in him than becton.

Well, he’s a 4th round pick. So he’s gonna be in the active roster.

Yea. What I meant to say was he'll  probably be an inactive player on Sundays. I think Douglas will have a veteran player in here, after final training camp cuts.  That's my guess, anyway.

It costs $450K to cut Conor McDermott.   Feeney is guaranteed $3mm.  

Max Mitchell could always suffer an injury and get put on IR (weight lifting) while we sign a veteran for a year.

Can the Jetz trust him to be healthy and play at a high level. Doubt it.

This is what it all boils down to.  Does Becton have the ability? yes  

All questions about Becton will be answered this year, thankfully!!

If he stays healthy, then the Jets look great.  If Becton gets injured again, and misses more than 50% of the season, then the Jets miscalculated in not picking up a high end tackle in the draft.

If Becton falters, then the Jets will be A. Looking for a big upgrade in free agency after the season or B. Tackle will be a big early target in next years draft.  

Either way, the Jets should be "all in" with resigning Fant for the next 3 years.

Interesting. We'll see -- I think it's more likely he replaces Chuma Edoga as a swing tackle but if he really lacks the play strength I suppose it's a possibility.

This speaks poorly for the plans rather than well for Becton.

Yea. I don't understand for the life of me why he didn't  tell Moses it was his job to lose, and offer more than the 5 mil he got from the Redskins????I believe he would have resigned under those circumstances.

Actually he signed with Baltimore for 3 years 15 million.

Becton is an immature man baby, who’s soft. Even when healthy in his first season he’d pull himself from games for periods. He’s hiding in Dallas with the baby B.S.

I do think we Draft another Tackle in 2023. The 2020 draft is looking shocking at this point. Fortunately Douglas seems to have gotten his sh*t together in that department.

On a side note, with the addition of Tomlinson, and culture a change with big locker room guys like C.J, do the players themselves start pulling Becton into line?

Agreed, such an immature reaction regardless of how much instigating Cimini did to provoke.

When your character has been in question for the last year, this is not the way to rebuild that image.

And he probably flipped out buying into lots of rumors the jets were going to take ickey and then trade him.  He just needs to calm down and align himself with the coaching staff again.

Right and part of being a professional athlete and getting paid so well is that your job is always liable to replacement with an upgrade even for those who play well and train the right way.

He's so young and hasn't proven anything yet.
