Kudos to Bart Scott Dan Leberfeld

Earlier this week, Bart Scott’s agent, Harold Lewis, took issue with the linebacker losing his $250,000 workout bonus, due to the lockout.

Scott has now back away from that position. Considering the state of the economy, and the myriad furloughs and paycuts going on around the NFL, he thinks his sacrifice isn’t a big deal.

“I’m not worried about that. I make good money,” the veteran linebacker told ESPNNewYork.com’s Rich Cimini. “My issues aren’t in the forefront. That’s not my main concern. My main concern are the guys that will be free agents, guys waiting for their big pay day.

“If I have to sacrifice my off-season conditioning program, I’ll be fine. I understand. Everybody has to make sacrifices right now. The game is in a state where we’re trying to make sure it’s better, going forward. We’re all losing something. We’re taking a step back to take two steps forward. That’s the important thing.”
