Scott was fined for playing without having his chin straps snapped at all times -- a safety issue -- during the Jets' 23-20 overtime victory at Detroit last week.
"It's absurd, it's ridiculous and it's a joke," Scott's agent Harold Lewis told ESPNNewYork.com on Friday afternoon. "But I guess when you're judge, jury and executioner, you can do whatever you want."
