Beachum, who is now 31 years old, has spent the last three seasons with the New York Jets and has started 45 of 48 games for them. During the previous season, he had an ankle sprain, which forced him to sit out three games.

The coaches considered him to be the offensive line’s most reliable player because of his consistent performance.

The Jets had a record of 0-3, scored a total of 33 points, and surrendered a total of 12 sacks while he was out of action. His return helped solidify an offensive line that had been beset by injuries.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Beachum, who was never considered a marquee talent, finished third among tackles in pass-block victory percentage (94.2%).

Even though he was just 6 feet 3 inches tall, he was an excellent pass protector.

Beachum broke into the NFL as a seventh-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012. After four seasons, he joined the Jacksonville Jaguars for one season before signing a three-year, $24 million contract with the Jets. He has 99 career starts and has played in 104 games.
