New York Jets practice on Monday featured more from big man Mekhi Becton and speedy free safety Ashtyn Davis.

The New York Jets hit the practice field Monday morning with a purpose: to build upon Sunday’s session.

Adam Gase is forced to run these practices based on the NFL’s guidelines, which means abiding by the ramp-up period time restrictions that were featured in Florham Park last week. Monday marked the first day allowed for padded practices leaguewide (save for the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs—the NFL’s Thursday night kickoff game) but the Jets went with just tops.

“Obviously, this is the first time we’ve been in pads since December,” Gase told reporters after practice. “But I did think the effort was there and the speed was there—a lot of good things as far as improvement in what we’re doing.”

Tuesday, Gase will have the opportunity to increase practice from the 90 minutes the media witnessed Monday.

“It was a short practice, mandated through the NFL and NFLPA with how they have this thing set up,” Gase added. “Ninety minutes… it goes quick. I do think we got some good work in but with a lot of improvement (to go).”

It was most definitely a light, rapid session; but that does not mean it finished without a couple of highlights.

Mekhi Becton impresses

Mekhi Becton continues to impress everybody throughout the organization. On one particular play, the Louisville product got to the second level and knocked Neville Hewitt into the dirt (field turf that features plenty of rubber, to be exact).

Beyond the Vyncint Smith injury being brutal for a shallow depth chart, it felt like fans were finally starting to buy into him being a contributor to this offense. Hopefully he can bounce back with enough time to find his stride!
