Jets owner Woody Johnson has been quite the social media savant since returning to his role running the shop.

On top of his viral Tik Tok videos providing Jets fans behind-the-scenes access, Mr. Johnson has also gone out of his way to pump up several Jets players including center Connor McGovern.

“Looking strong @McGovenator60 💪🏻”

In the 15-second clip, McGovern is shown twice lifting an insane amount of weight.

The 29-year-old is set to enter his third season with the green and white in 2022.

After a poor year in 2020 by all metrics, the former Missouri product bounced back in a major way last season when you look at the Pro Football Focus grades:

  • 75.9 overall grade
  • 68.0 pass block grade
  • 78.9 run block grade

It seemed like Jets fans were initially pleased with the original signing back in 2020. McGovern signed a three-year deal for $27 million and the move was supposed to bring stability to the trenches.

After that uneven first year, Jets fans were ready to hit the eject button and the team seemingly flirted with that idea both in 2021 and 2022:

There was some rumored speculation from Jeremy Fowler of ESPN that the Jets would kick the tires on Corey Linsley, however that was all smoke.

Then this offseason the rumors between Ryan Jensen and the Jets were much more intense. Dan Graziano of ESPN said to “keep an eye out for this” potential love connection.

ESPN and uStadium doubled down on those takes and said that Gang Green was willing to either kick McGovern to guard (has prior history on the right side) or dump him straight up.

Jensen never truly made it to free agency as he re-signed with the Bucs, but many wonder if all of that smoke was true or just another free agency Cinderella story.

Now with the Jets just a few weeks ahead of training camp, it is safe to assume they’re going to ride things out with McGovern.

They don’t possess a long-term answer on the roster to eventually replace him, but for the present, the Jets are more than satisfied with the starters.

ESPN analyst and former Jets stud Damien Woody articulated it very well recently saying who you have around you can really change things on the offensive line.

McGovern is destined for an even better year with a talented guard combination lining up on both sides of him (Laken Tomlinson and Alijah Vera-Tucker). If both Mekhi Becton and George Fant can stay healthy, this offensive line could be the anchor of a really good Jets offense.

It has been a long time since anyone could say that with any level of confidence.
