    For me at this point it's just a ton of speculation. He's been put on notice by the team and rightfully so.

    If he comes in and plays like he has the potential to, all will be forgotten.

    Lol half of Jet twitterverse believes Hughes is a hack. So that’s our sources, at least give me DJ (even if he’s on his way out). Do me a favor and see how folks view him. He’s basically a low grade Mehta/Cimini.

    And Graziano I believe mentioned his weight too but mentions the FO is backing Becton but the staff may not feel the same way. This is all speculation here…about his weight and trying to nitpick what Saleh’s been saying really doesn’t say anything because he doesn’t talk bad on his players.

    Cimini has only mentioned that there MAYBE tension between Becton’s camp and the jets because Becton’s camp feels they misdiagnosed his injury.

    And someone mentioned Moses was available in July, that’s fine. Reiff is a step below Moses. And either the Jets FO is making a HUGE blunder by not covering their asses in the event Becton isn’t nearly ready to assume a starting role or have some sort of intel feeling he will be okay. But yeah let’s put a lazy out of shape RT to protect the most prized player on the team in Zach Wilson. Please help it make sense.

    This is why I side with the team that if this was such an issue, the Jets would have made the moves to correct this. JD a big proponent of building an OL has trusted Becton to be apart of this build from day 1 till now. A bunch of swing tackles/veterans like Moses, potentially Reiff, McDermott/Mitchell don’t say anything to feel “concerned.”

    If, in the first forty five seconds, you say the subject is beaten to death and everyone is tired of it, why post at all if there's nothing to add but how your buddy "feels"?

    Yeah on his last podcast Hughes said Becton was "pushing 400 lbs" at minicamp, which is why he didn't practice.

    The "Hughes is a bad/inaccurate reporter" take is a braindead one. He's been extremely accurate the last couple years other than the last draft. He's also one of like 4 different people to report that Becton was recently 400ish lbs and has been around there for much of the last year, not 370 like you said. Esiason, Garafolo, Hughes, Cimini, and Becton's own nutritionist off the top of my head.

    As a Jet fan, this close to the start of the season, I can only HOPE that Mechi is healthy and able to start camp.

    We need him to throw opposing team players around like rag dolls…and tap our boys lightly during TC.

    He do look happy with himself...
    It's great news if Becton is ready to compete at left tackle.

    He's (literally) a big part of the line scheme... if he can protect Zach and plow open holes for MC & Breece...
    then things are gonna be swell... ;)

    p.s. I'm always awed at what a big human he is...

    I do get thats obviously something has been up since the injury and weight issues make sense but the last 4, 5, 6 times Ive seen Becton he doesnt look too out of shape to me
