Default Sources: Jets' offer needs Scott's OK

On Thursday night, linebacker Bart Scott told the Ravens he wanted to test the free-agent market even though he was considering a five-year offer to stay. His step into free agency has taken him to the New York Jets.


The Jets and Scott's agent, Harold Lewis, have agreed in principle to a five-year, $40 million deal, according to multiple sources, but the deal still needs Scott's endorsement.

Scott arrived at the Jets facility early Friday morning to meet with his former defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan, who is now the head coach of the team.

If he accepts the offer, Scott will leave the Ravens after seven productive years in which he's had 433 tackles and 16 sacks. His best season was in 2006 when he made the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro team. In that season, he had 103 tackles and 9 sacks.

Senior writer John Clayton covers the NFL for ESPN.com.

Default Scott's loss no surprise for Ravens...

Linebacker Bart Scott leaving the Baltimore Ravens is a substantial loss, but it's no surprise.
Most expected the Ravens to lose Scott, who has agreed to a five-year, $40 million deal with the New York Jets according to ESPN's John Clayton. With three big-name linebackers -- Scott, Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs -- all headed for free agency, there was little chance of Baltimore keeping all three and many figured Scott would be the odd man out.

The Ravens used the franchise tag to keep Suggs and are still hopeful negotiating with Lewis. Scott joined his former defensive coordinator in Jets head coach Rex Ryan, who will run the same scheme that Scott flourished in.

Scott joins a list of linebackers to recently leave the Ravens, which include Adalius Thomas and Ed Hartwell. Baltimore was able to continue its success over the years, but now it makes it more important not to lose Lewis.

The potential of losing Scott, Lewis and Ryan in one offseason would drastically hurt Baltimore's defense. The unit was ranked No. 2 in the NFL last year as the Ravens advanced to the AFC title game.

I don't think losing Scott will hurt the Ravens much . . . unfortunately.

My hubby's friend, who is an avid Rats fan, is in a total meltdown right now!

The Rat Birds are falling apart!!!!!!!!!! Let's see how well Jim Harbaugh does next year without Rex Ryan running the defense.
