Jets cut Bart Scott, too

Well, so much for that Thursday meeting with Bart Scott’s agent.

The Jets have announced that linebacker Bart Scott has been released.

It’s unclear what caused things to change in the past hour or so.  It could be that, while finalizing the arrangements for the Thursday meeting, the Jets realized Scott wouldn’t be willing to accept what the Jets would offer on a reduced contract.

And so the Jets opted to pull the rip cord on Scott, making him an unrestricted free agent and a candidate to join former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine in Buffalo.
