JETS GIVE LB SCOTT RIGHT TO SEEK TRADE (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d827413e5/article/report-jets-give-lb-scott-the-right-to-seek-trade)

"It's no secret the Jets are hoping to vastly improve the vibe in a locker
room that self-combusted by the end of last season. Only problem is, they can't
seem to rid themselves of the players who pose the biggest threat to
discord.<div id="yui_3_4_1_1_1330389057140_85" class="articleText">

The team paid wide receiver <a id="yui_3_4_1_1_1330389057140_294" class="player-flyout" href="/players/santonioholmes/profile?id=HOL657297">Santonio
Holmes</a> earlier this month, unwilling to take the cap hit that would come
with cutting a player labeled as a "cancer" by a teammate.</p>


And now we have Bart Scott (/players/bartscott/profile?id=SCO100498), the linebacker
with the major mouth and minor production who the Jets granted the right to seek
a trade on Monday, according to the New York Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/jets/ny-jets-give-linebacker-bart-scott-permission-seek-trade-article-1.1029424#ixzz1ncLijZoN).</p>


Scott, a 10-year veteran who followed Rex Ryan from Baltimore to New York, is
entering the fourth year of a six-year deal with the Jets. His struggles in pass
coverage made him a part-time player this past season.</p>


Like Holmes, cutting Scott, 31, would put the team into cap hell.
Unfortunately, Scott's high salary ($4.2 million in 2012, plus a $250,000
workout bonus) and declining production makes him an attractive trade chip only
in the most surreal of Mike Tannenbaum's fever dreams.</p>


All of which leaves the Jets in a position of trying to improve team
chemistry with much of the same hazardous materials still in the mix. To quote
Mr. Scott's most infamous line, "Can't wait."</p></div>

Scott to slow now for us. Speed is what we need at LB Stop Vick and Mc Coy. Beat Philly again and we make the play offs.

Thanks for these updates its awesome stuff.

I have a feeling the Jets are taking a page out of JReese's handbook. The old <u>Give The Player the Right to seek a Trade Just so He Can See How Much He's NOT Worth</u> page.
