Jets fans finally got an update on the team’s expectations in regards to the return of Mekhi Becton but didn’t get to find out where the lineman is in terms of his weight.

So to summarize on Mekhi Becton: His knee is structurally sound, per Saleh. He will be ready for training camp. Saleh won't reveal weight, says Becton still working w/ performance staff. No decision on LT-RT situation. #Jets

With his knee reportedly in good shape, head coach Robert Saleh said Becton will return when training camp kicks off in late July.  Becton has of course been the center of attention in recent weeks as works to come back from injury.  The tackle dislocated is knee cap in the team’s opener last season and despite the team suggesting his return would be weeks away, missed the whole season.

Becton has been working out in Texas with his trainer and a  nutritional team in an effort to shed some pounds after reportedly tipping the scales at over 400 lbs by the end of last season.

With Becton on the shelf, tackle George Fant turned in a career year, meaning Becton will have to win his old job back at left tackle.

JMO but bf his weight was good I'd imagine they'd have told us the number, either Mekhi or Salah.

 

If he's overweight right now it's time to start scouting 2023 Tackles.

Eh. maybe. or maybe you're reading too much into it.

And of this was BB, everyone would just accept that he is coming back for Camp and nothing more needs to be said.

This along with Becton's words at his press meeting is all good news.  

There's nothing physically stopping him for showing up next month ready to be the dancing bear he was born to be. 

 

I'm through with the over weight jokes and await camp.

Somone on another site observed that he was favoring his knee when getting to podium ... actually the comment was that his knee buckled.   I am not interested in his T-shirt, comments, etc.  STFU and get on the field and proove that the "B" word is not appropriate.

I am a Becton supporter but make no mistake about it… if Becton came in at the perfect weight and in great shape, it would’ve been said many times.

That doesn’t mean he won’t start and have a good season, but he definitely didn’t show up today in a great place
