When asked about a circulating rumor earlier this week that the former All-Pro linebacker wouldn’t be back with the Jets in 2012, Scott reportedly responded:

”All I know is I’ve got a guaranteed contract for $4 million,” Scott replied. He then displayed his middle finger and told reporters to “take a picture of this,” while leaving the locker room.
