Mekhi Becton Making Strides With Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle/guard Mekhi Becton has not had a great start to his NFL career. The No. 11 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the New York Jets has played in just 31 games (30 starts) over his first four pro seasons. He's struggled with weight management, injuries, and general ineffectiveness. However, he's reportedly having a great offseason after a change of scenery. "He's probably had one of the best offseasons here," offensive tackle Lane Johnson said. "He's played some guard at times and has done really well. Just a big, strong, powerful dude. I think he's going to help us a lot this year whether he plays tackle or guard. But a guy that big that can move that well, we definitely need him out there." Becton is learning from one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL (Jeff Stoutland) and a few offensive linemen who are top players at their positions. The 25-year-old Louisville product figures to be the "sixth man" on one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, so he'll have a chance to step back and develop.

Mekhi Becton Signing With Eagles

Free-agent offensive tackle Mekhi Becton has signed a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. The former first-round pick has agreed to a one-year deal worth $5.5 million for next season. The New York Jets decided to move on from Becton after he started 16 games for them in 2023. Becton has not lived up to the hype of being taken early in the draft. To be fair, Becton has faced multiple injuries and is still young enough to turn his career around. This could end up being a steal for the Eagles if they can get Becton on the right track.

Mekhi Becton Visits With Bengals

New York Jets free-agent offensive tackle Mekhi Becton visited with the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday and has two more visits upcoming, according to a league source. Becton was the 11th overall pick by the Jets in 2020 out of Louisville. He started just 14 games in his first two seasons in the NFL due to knee injuries and missed all of 2022. The 6-foot-7, 363-pound hulking offensive lineman was finally able to stay healthy last year, starting 16 games for the Jets. The Bengals are searching for offensive tackle help this offseason after Jonah Williams signed with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday. While Becton's huge frame is great for getting in the way of would-be pass-rushers, he's missed more games (36) than he's played in (31) early in his NFL career.

Jets Rule Out Mekhi Becton In Week 12

New York Jets offensive lineman Mekhi Becton (ankle, knee), who came into Friday's Week 12 contest against the Miami Dolphins as questionable, is officially inactive. Becton won't be able to suit up after spraining his ankle in the Week 11 blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills. The good news is that his injury isn't believed to be all that serious, so he could have a chance at returning in Week 13 at home against the Atlanta Falcons. Becton's absence on Friday is notable with quarterback Tim Boyle replacing Zach Wilson under center for his first start of the year for the floundering Jets.

Mekhi Becton Wins Starting Right-Tackle Spot

New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton has won the team's starting right-tackle spot to start the 2023 regular season. Becton, the former 11th overall pick in 2020 out of Louisville, was able to return to the practice field this summer after dealing with knee injuries the last several seasons. He managed to play well in training camp and the preseason to earn a starting job over Max Mitchell. The Jets' offensive line has always been better with a healthy Becton on the field, but the problem is he's often been out of shape and hurt early in his career. Whether the 24-year-old can stay healthy all year in 2023 is another question, but this is a good start and good news for quarterback Aaron Rodgers in his first season in New York.

Mekhi Becton Has Lost Some Weight

New York Jets fourth-year offensive tackle Mekhi Becton, who has dealt with weight problems frequently in his time with the Jets, recently weighed in at around 340 pounds. Becton weighed in the 380-390 range in previous years, so this appears to be good news for the Jets offensive lineman heading into training camp this summer. He'll be competing with veteran Duane Brown for the starting left-tackle job while simultaneously competing with Max Mitchell and Billy Turner at right tackle. As long as Brown is healthy, he should win the left-tackle job, so Becton will essentially be competing at right tackle in training camp. The Jets' best offensive-line combination is one that has Becton involved, but he'll need to stay in shape to stay on the field.

Jets Decline Fifth-Year Option On Mekhi Becton

The New York Jets declined the fifth-year option of offensive tackle Mekhi Becton by the deadline on Tuesday, according to sources. This move doesn't come as a surprise to anyone after the former 11th overall pick in 2020 missed all of last season after injuring his kneecap in training camp. The 24-year-old apparently is in better shape this offseason, but he'll really have to impress in 2023 if the Jets are going to consider re-signing him in free agency next offseason. Because of injuries, Becton has played in only one game since his rookie season in 2020. If he's able to stay healthy this year, Becton is expected to play right tackle for Gang Green.

Mekhi Becton Down To 350 Pounds

New York Jets left tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) is down to around 350 pounds this offseason. The 2020 first-rounder weighed as much as 400 pounds a couple years ago and is determined to right his career as he looks to bounce back from his second knee surgery. The Jets have been non-committal on Becton's fifth-year option that would guarantee him $13.6 million in 2024, but the fact that he's missed almost two full seasons due to injuries suggests the Jets will decline it by the May 1 deadline. The 23-year-old expects to be ready for training camp this summer after suffering an avulsion fracture of his right kneecap during training camp last year. Becton missed all of the 2022 season.

Mekhi Becton Officially Placed On Injured Reserve

The New York Jets officially placed offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday. Becton is scheduled to have surgery with Dr. Neal ElAttrache within the week, and he'll miss all of the 2022 season. It's a tough turn of events for the former first-round pick who played in just one game last year due to an unrelated knee injury. The 23-year-old was moved to right tackle at training camp this summer before suffering the season-ending knee injury. George Fant, who played well in Becton's absence at left tackle in 2021, will open the year as the starting left tackle. However, the Jets could be without second-year quarterback Zack Wilson (knee) after he had knee surgery on Tuesday.

Mekhi Becton Likely Out For The Year

New York Jets former first-round offensive tackle Mekhi Becton (knee) suffered an avulsion fracture of his right kneecap in training camp practice on Monday. He'll visit with a surgeon on Wednesday, but Becton will likely miss all of the 2022 season. It's brutal news for the Jets and the 23-year-old, who missed all but one game last year due to an unrelated knee injury. In his absence, George Fant stepped in at left tackle and did a commendable job protecting quarterback Zach Wilson's blind side in his rookie season. Becton had a solid rookie season in 2020, but injuries in back-to-back seasons have quickly turned him into a bust early in his career.
