Jets linebacker Bart Scott wasn't amused by Patriots receiver Wes Welker's Thursday news conference in which he made double-digit references to "feet", "toes" and "foot", which players are taking as a dig at Jets coach Rex Ryan.
Scott told Roderick Boone of Newsday: "Be very careful what you say about our coach. His [Welker's] days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that."
According to Peter King of Sports Illustrated, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Ray Anderson contacted all remaining playoff teams late this week, warning them against further trash talking.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter also reported that Anderson told teams that past comments would be considered if the league was to discipline a player for his actions in this weekend's playoff games.
