Bart Scott Fined For Giving Middle Finger To Photographer

Around this time last season, New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott was telling Sal Paolantonio he couldn't wait to see him in Pittsburgh for the AFC East championship game. Now, the Jets will have to watch the playoffs from home and Scott is out $10,000.

A source told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta that Scott has been fined $10,000 by the Jets for giving the middle finger to a photographer in the team's locker room on Monday.

The Jets ended their season in disappointing fashion, losing their final three games to finish 8-8, and things have hardly gotten better since the season ended. Backup quarterback Greg McElroy said the team was filled with "extremely selfish individuals" and general manager Mike Tannenbaum admitted that "chemistry was certainly a factor this year." Santonio Holmes was labeled a "cancer" by one of his teammates and former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason ripped Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan.

Oh, the Jets.
