"It's an urban legend you know. There wasn't anything going on so you have to build something of it."
Scott says there was no bidding war
"I want to first clear all these things up," said Scott. "I wasn't causing a bidding war. With these contracts, there is a lot of paperwork and I think the paperwork was 60 pages long. My agent was in St. Louis and is based out of St. Louis. He was finishing up (St. Louis Rams offensive lineman) Jason Brown's deal in the building. We (the Jets and his agent) agreed on a deal and we knew that he was going to get to wrapping ours up after the Jason Brown deal. We wanted to spend some time and kill some time. We went out to the mall, looked at some watches, like I often do, and came back and finished the thing up. (Throughout the process) I was getting calls from my wife. She was stressed out saying that she's packing, she's unpacking. What's going on? I let her know it's a done deal and everything was fine.
