The Jets’ thorough collapse to close this regular season is going to cost plenty of people jobs. Starting with inside linebacker Bart Scott.
Rod Boone of Newsday reports that the Jets will not bring Scott back for another season.
While it’s a little odd for the news to come out now, the decision is no surprise. Scott is due $5.6 million in 2012 and his play has steadily fallen off the last two years. He was a part-time player this year, and was not terribly effective.
We assume Scott will get another job in the league. If not, a fun media career awaits.
You can guess how we feel about that.
