NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL is looking into an obscene gesture Jets linebacker Bart Scott made toward a photographer in the team’s locker room.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed Tuesday that the league is reviewing the incident which occurred as the players cleared out their lockers at the team’s facility in Florham Park, N.J., on Monday after failing to make the playoffs. Scott, who could be fined, gathered items from his locker, walked past reporters and then turned, stuck out his middle finger and used an expletive while telling a photographer to get the camera out of his face.
In separate interviews on 1050 ESPN Radio, general manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan said it was “unacceptable” behavior. “I don’t know exactly how,” Ryan added, “but that situation will definitely be addressed.”
