Jets’ Mekhi Becton spent an absurd amount of money on an absurd chain

A massive lineman deserves some massive bling.

At 6-8, 270 pounds, Jets rookie Mekhi Becton is a mountain of a man and Sam Darnold’s guardian angel for the foreseeable future. At his size, suffice it to say, Becton probably spends a lot of time getting custom suits made — or, in this case, jewelry.

In August, Becton showed off a massive chain and pendant: a stylized ticket, encrusted entirely in diamonds and gold with “BIG TICKET ADMIT ONE” across the front.

Just a little something small and subtle. But if you’re 6’8” and 360lbs you can’t just have a regular sized chain❗️#JasonOfBeverlyHills – #diamonds #custom #pendant #jewelry #design #customjewelry #custommade #luxury

On the closing day of Jets training camp, Mount Mekhi offered insight into the tag price on the piece.

“I go by ‘Big Ticket,’ so I had to have a ‘Big Ticket’ piece,” Becton said Thursday, via the New York Post. “I would’ve had it for the draft, but we didn’t have a draft. So, it was prolonged to now.”

Becton said the chain cost him a cool $175,000, though TMZ notes that the pendant features 120 carats of diamonds and more than a kilo of gold. TMZ says the chain is worth more than $400,000, despite Becton’s receipt saying less.

It’s no problem for Becton’s wallet, though: The rookie tackle signed a four-year deal worth more than $18 million, with an $11 million signing bonus. He’s got the money to spend.

Gone are the days of buying yourself a nice Bentley or Rolls Royce with your first NFL paycheck — enter the era of obscenely expensive jewelry.
