In today's episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano discuss Mekhi Becton's struggles, winners and losers from NY Jets training camp, some egregious Madden ratings, and much more.

The hot topic of the day is Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton. Becton has struggled to start training camp, working exclusively with the second-team offense and even missing Wednesday's practice due to knee discomfort.

This has prompted rumors that Becton might not only start the season on the bench, but there's a possibility that he could even be traded before Week 1. Should these rumors be believed? Is Becton really not going to start Week 1?

Becton has been one of Jets training camp's biggest losers to start, but which other players have stood out? The entire Jets' offensive line has had a rough go of it to this point, while the team's defensive line has been dominant.

Others such as Garrett Wilson, Jermaine Johnson, Tony Adams, and Zaire Barnes have quickly made strong impressions. Wilson's chemistry with Aaron Rodgers is growing with each and every practice.

Speaking of Rodgers, the Jets seem convinced that the four-time MVP will play more than one season with the team. Justin and Mike discussed Rodgers' comments on Wednesday as well as Denzel Mims' recent comments.

Mims appeared to take a few shots at the Jets when speaking to reporters for the first time since he was traded to the Detroit Lions. Are we reading too much into these comments, or does Mims actually feel slighted?

Finally, Justin and Mike broke down a few egregious Madden ratings. From Alijah Vera-Tucker to D.J. Reed to even Tony Adams, EA Sports did the Jets dirty. If you want to hear a fun rant about the horrific state of the Madden video game franchise, tune in to the final portion of this week's episode.
