Bart Scott comments on joining the Jets

Here is Bart Scott's first comments to the media bout joining the Jets on Friday.

"It is an honor to come here and start a new chapter of my career with the New York Jets," said Scott. "What made the decision easier for me are the people in the organization and my familiarity with the coaching staff. These guys really pursued me hard. They picked me up from my house early in the morning and really let me know they care, they are serious and they are committed to winning. The opportunity to play under Coach Ryan again was huge. I've made it no secret how big a role he has played in me taking the steps from being an undrafted rookie free agent to where I am today. I wanted to keep that chemistry going. It's been so successful that I didn't want to lose that magic."
