Jets ready to cut ties with Bart Scott
08:00 AM ET 02.08 | Breaking up, as it turns out, may not be all that hard for the Jets to do in the case of Bart Scott. Sources told the Daily News Thursday that Gang Green's plan is to cut the loquacious linebacker, along with Calvin Pace -- another mainstay of the linebacking corps -- and offensive tackle Jason Smith in the coming weeks before free agency begins March 12. The moves would save the Jets $27.7 million in cap space for next season. Scott has been the face and mouth of the Jets defense since 2009, and Gang Green would save $7.2 million if he is released. Pace, a Jet since 2008 and in the final year of his contract, would represent $8.6 million in cap savings, and Smith would save the team $12 million.
