Rich Cimini reports that the Ravens are offering 7.5 million dollars per year for Scott. I apologize for misreading Cimini's post before as if the Jets made an offer.
UPDATE (1:27 AM): But Erik Boland reports that Scott and his agent are probably going to take some time to let the market bid up his price. So expect a decision to take days, if not weeks, as he is sure to draw interest around the league. Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine's presence should give the Jets a leg up on most competition though. Here's what Scott had to say in an interview on ESPN.
"I have a special part in my heart for those guys," Scott said, referring to Ryan and some of his Ravens' defensive assistants, including Pettine. "They taught me to play defense. They're just as much a part of my success as I am."
*As for actual news, fullback Tony Richardson agreed to a one-year, $500,000 dollar contract as per Adam Schefter.
*Jay Feely is also close to a contract to return as kicker. Both he and Mike Nugent are free agents, but Feely looks like the choice.
