Bart Scott Body Slams His Wrestling Critics

New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott could care less what you thought about his role on TNA Impact last Thursday.

ESPN.com asked Scott what he thought about his wrestling critics:

“It would be like going on ‘Dancing With the Stars. Did I have to check (with the Jets) when I ate Wise potato chips? (An endorsement he did last fall.) Did (Mark) Sanchez have to check when he threw a Pepsi bottle in a Pepsi commercial? Do you have to check when you shoot a Dicks commercial and have to run across the floor? (A Darrelle Revis commercial.) At what point does it bear conversation?”

So now Scott’s appearance was nothing more than a glorified commercial/endorsement deal?

As for the Jets front office, they have declined to comment so far on Scott’s part-time career as a wrestler.
