Nail-biting time at Jets headquarters


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

What was shaping up to be an exciting day for the New York Jets has turned anxious at their Florham Park, N.J., offices.

Inside linebacker Bart Scott, who hammered out a five-year, $40 million deal, reportedly is giving the Baltimore Ravens a chance to match. New York Daily News reporter Rich Cimini has that story.

With ominous words from Ray Lewis about not returning to the Ravens, perhaps they bite on Scott.

Meanwhile, Chris Kemoeatu, the guard that the Jets had targeted to replace Brandon Moore, has decided to remain with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

ESPN's John Clayton, citing multiple sources, reports Kemoeatu agreed to a five-year, $20 million deal with nearly $6 million in guarantees.
