The season ended very differently for Jets linebacker Bart Scott. The last time we saw him, it was the day after the Jets season had ended, and Bart was photographed flipping off a cameraman as he left the training facility. Since then, the Jets had given him permission to go out and seek a trade. Now, the “can’t wait” man is singing a different tune, now excited about coming back.

“Of course I’m excited,” he told Bruce Beck of 4 NBC New York at an event in Manhattan. “I came here (in 2009) and I bought the lakefront property. I was all in. I’m still all in.”

Bart went on to talk about that he was frustrated, being relegated to a reduced role in 2011. He went on to talk about that he and coach Rex Ryan had a good talk and he is comfortable with his role on the team, and looking forward to a bounce back season as a team and an organization.

Coach Ryan spoke at the NFL meetings, and also suggested that he expects Bart Scott back as well. He mentioned that Scott has dropped some weight as well, which will aid in him returning to playing every down again.

He also said the locker room wasn’t that fractured, and that outsiders really don’t know what goes on.
