One final question for you. Fine, I admit he's not this top-tier amazing, best-in-league type of guy... But in FA is he BAP at his position? If that's the case you'll have to pay him the money, goes back to the point that in FA, everyone gets overpaid. Like you said, we got "our" guy. I think he's got lots of upside to him considering he's in a system where he's been coached under that specific coach. He's worked with both Ryan and Pettine.

Your correct. He is def one of the BAP at his position in this FA class. The signing makes sense.

Here's from Cimini's blog

Source: Scott Agrees to Five-Year Deal

February 27, 2009

All they need now is a thumb's up from Bart Scott.

The Jets and the former Ravens linebacker have agreed in principle on a free-agent contract, a league source tells the Daily News. Scott, one of the most coveted free agents in the NFL, will sign a five-year deal for about $40 million. The Jets outbid the Ravens by $500,000 per year, based on the offer that was presented to him late last night by Baltimore.

Scott, who arrived in Florham Park, N.J., this morning, currently is visiting with team officials at One Jets Drive. He will be reunited with his former Ravens defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan. Scott's agent, Harold Lewis, is waiting for the go-ahead from his client to start the paperwork. At this point, that's a formality.

Scott, 28, will be inserted in the middle of Ryan's 3-4 defense, starting alongside David Harris at inside linebacker. Essentially, the Jets chose Scott over his more heralded, but older teammate, Ray Lewis, who would've been their fallback choice.

On Thursday night, linebacker Bart Scott told the Ravens he wanted to test the free-agent market even though he was considering a five-year offer to stay. His step into free agency has taken him to the New York Jets. The Jets and Scott's agent, Harold Lewis, have agreed in principle to a five-year, $40 million deal, according to multiple sources, but the deal still needs Scott's endorsement.

Scott arrived at the Jets facility early Friday morning to meet with his former defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan, who is now the head coach of the team.

If he accepts the offer, Scott will leave the Ravens after seven productive years in which he's had 433 tackles and 16 sacks. His best season was in 2006 when he made the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro team. In that season, he had 103 tackles and 9
