If there were any doubts left as to whether or not the Jets had crossed the line when Antonio Cromartie explicitly expressed his “hate” for Tom Brady, Bart Scott erased such in his response to Wes Welker‘s “foot comments” about Rex Ryan.
“I’ll tell you what,” Scott said to Newsday. “Be very careful what you say about our coach. His [Welker’s] days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that.”
It’s hard to believe that Scott won’t be disciplined over the threatening comments, given the NFL’s decree for players to tone the trash talk down.
According to Greg Aiello, “comments of a physically threatening nature are always taken into account in evaluating discipline for illegal physical contact on field.” Any Welker head-hunting could result in a severe penalty.
