Linebacker Bart Scott has spent the last three seasons with the New York Jets, but ESPN reports that he isn't likely to be back with the team.

"Team officials met with Scott's agent at the NFL scouting combine to discuss the linebacker's future," the site notes. Agent Harold Lewis told ESPN Monday that he informed the team that his client was "extremely frustrated" with his decreasing playing time last year, a fact that was "destroying [Scott]."

Lewis said Scott would like to stay with the Jets, but "if we can't fix what's broken, there will be other opportunities," ESPN reports. One place the 32-year-old wouldn't mind ending up, the agent told the site, is with the New York Giants.

While the Jets "are prepared to part ways with Scott," the site notes, the remaining issue is that his $4.2 million base salary is guaranteed. The reason for that guarantee, ESPN notes, is because Scott took a $1 million cut last summer in exchange for the guarantee so the team would have more cap space.

Scott had 66 tackles, 4.5 sacks and one forced fumble. The previous season, he had 81 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble.
