Between Marcus Maye, Bradley McDougald, and 2020 rookie Ashtyn Davis, they should be okay for the long-term.

The Jets have failed to find the appropriate combination on the offensive line, whether through the draft or free agency, and they obviously are hoping that Mekhi Becton can help fix that problem.
