Saleh – ‘It’s a very uncontrollable aspect of life’

Over the weekend, the Jets had a player take to social media and make news about his position preference:

Mekhi Becton tweeted on Saturday: “I. Am. A. Left. Tackle!” before deleting the post.

Later that day, Jets coach Robert Saleh was asked about the tweet in a press conference and said to Becton: “Go earn the left tackle (job).”

Saleh isn’t a fan of social media and made that clear while he was the defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers:

“Social media, I don’t do it, I don’t have it, and to be honest with you, it’s a very uncontrollable aspect of life,” Saleh said in 2018. “The more you focus on things you have no control over, the less you can focus on things you do have control over. To make a long answer short, I don’t get involved with it.”
