Smashmouth Posted June 22, 2022 Share Posted June 22, 2022 FWIW we are ALL rooting for Becton to get in shape and dominate the NFL no one is actively rooting for the guy to fail that's ridiculous. That being said there are plenty of reasons to doubt his dedication and work ethic and the possible problems his weight may cause. I'm not sure the injury he sustained last year was only from one incident (the rolling over his back side by another player) . Becton had numerous issues going on with his knee one was a Dislocated Knee Cap and the other a strained MCL both of these were obviously from getting rolled on since you can't play with either but the removal of damaged cartilage from his knee usually comes from wear and tear over time especially when its described as "numerous loose bodies of cartilage" If you are shredding cartilage that means high impact, common sense tells you being grossly overweight is not helping matters. There is no doubt Becton is a big guy but there is no reason whatsoever why he could not get down to a playing weight between 340-350 which will still give him plenty of weight to push people around at will while making him quicker to deal with speed rushers and take pressure off his damaged knee . Cartilage does not grow back its not a good long term thing to keep putting pressure with being overweight there is no way in hell Doctors and trainers are not relaying this information to Becton and when a trainer says he's not over 400 pounds that's scary because as far as we know the most he weighed playing the game was in the 370 range so why the 400 reference ?? I'm hoping all the guessing about his weight is wrong but its pretty telling when no one is willing to say what he weighs. If he was 350 everyone involved would be praising him and willing to divulge such information, but they are not, which should help everyone read between the lines. I'm pulling for him but we wont know anything about him or whether he can perform until training camp starts, that's when the real info comes out lets hope its good news and Becton becomes the road grader we need at RT to pave the way for our running game. 3 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
