Ravens LB Scott gets 6-year, $48M deal from Jets
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan is already raiding his former Baltimore Ravens defense.


The Jets on Friday reached agreement with linebacker Bart Scott on a six-year, $48 million deal. The linebacker will make $27 million over the first three years of the deal.

Scott's agent confirmed the deal with The Associated Press.

Scott, who played alongside Ray Lewis as a Ravens starter the past four seasons, will likely play inside linebacker in New York's 3-4 defense.

Scott had 82 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks last season for the Ravens.

Lewis, meanwhile, has publicly expressed interest in playing for the Jets if unable to re-sign with Baltimore. Scott, though, is five years younger and may have more long-term upside than the 33-year-old Lewis.

Ryan may not be finished raiding his former team during the opening of free agency.

Free agent Baltimore safety Jim Leonhard is planning to visiting the New York Jets Saturday, a source told FOXSports.com.

Presumably part of the appeal is due to the presence of Ryan, New York's new head coach and former defensive coordinator for Baltimore's outstanding defense.

Leonhard joined the Ravens in 2008 after playing his first three seasons in Buffalo, and started all 16 games for Baltimore's No. 2-ranked defense last season.

In other Ravens news, center Jason Brown is set to visit today with St. Louis, FOXSports.com has learned.

The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Brown is considered the top interior lineman in this year's free-agent class. He was moved from guard to center in 2008 and started every game for a second consecutive season. Brown also is only 25 years old.

Offensive line is considered the weakest position group for the Rams, which finished with a 2-14 record in 2008.
