Scott and Jets close on a deal

Dave Hutchinson and John Clayon report that the Jets are close to a deal with LB Bart Scott.

"Reportedly, the two sides are closing in on a five-year, $37 million deal but I'm hearing Scott is looking for an average of $8 million per year so there may still be some work to do," wrote Hutchinson.

"The Jets and Scott's agent, Harold Lewis, have agreed in principle to a five-year, $40 million deal, according to multiple sources, but the deal still needs Scott's endorsement," wrote Clayton.

This is surprising money for a good, not great player.
