Mekhi Becton’s choice of T-shirt told the story.

Becton wore a blue T-shirt with orange lettering to his session with reporters with the words “Big Bust” in the middle surrounded by the words “fat, lazy, out of shape, injury prone, bum, sucks, overweight.”

Becton said the T-shirt is a reminder of what people have been saying about him. After a promising rookie season in 2020, Becton missed nearly the entire 2021 season and seems to have been written off by some people.  

“I don’t understand why,” Becton said in his first interview since last September. “It’s all good, though. I’m going to make them eat their words.”

The Jets certainly hope so. The 2020 first-round pick is a key piece for the 2022 Jets. If Becton recaptures the form he showed as a rookie and stays healthy, the Jets offensive line can take a big step forward.

Becton is returning from the knee injury he suffered in Week 1 last year that cost him the season. Both Becton and Saleh said the knee is now fully recovered and the expectation is Becton will be on the field when training camp opens at the end of July.
