New York JetsÂ linebackerÂ Bart ScottÂ could be handed a fine for showing a New York Post photographer the middle finger during a classless exit from the locker room.
Scott refused to speak to reporters Monday before making the obscene gesture at the photographer, saying, “Take a picture of this. Get out of my (bleeping) face.”
An NFL spokesman confirmed the league was looking into the matter, ESPN reported Tuesday.
The hand gesture may have been Scott’s final significant act as a Jet if he is dumped in the offseason after a decline in his production in 2011, the New York Post reported.
Scott played a reduced role this season, coming off the field on most passing downs.
He is due a guaranteed $4.2 million in 2012, something he referenced on his way out the door when asked about a report that he would not be back.
“I don’t know why, I’ve got a guaranteed contract for $4 million,” Scott said.
