On Monday, Bart Scott walked out of the Jets’ locker room for what might have been the last time and gave reporters the finger, telling a photographer to “Get that out of my [bleeping] face” as he left.
As a result, the Jets have fined Scott $10,000, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
This is the second time the Jets have had to fine someone for a middle finger; head coach Rex Ryan was docked $50,000 by the team for giving a fan the finger at a mixed martial arts fight.
Scott is reportedly not in the Jets’ plans for the 2012 season, and he’s expected to be released. So far, Scott has declined to say anything publicly other than “Get that out of my [bleeping] face,” but considering how many great comments have come out of Jets camp in the last few days, we can’t wait to hear what Scott has to say.
