NFL investigating Jets' 'frat-boy' locker room

Posted by Will Brinson

Over the weekend at Jets practice, there was some noise made about a potentially awkward situation whereby Jets players and coaches were, for lack of a better word, harassing a female reporter from TV Azteca.

Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post mentioned it a couple of times on Twitter, and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk was informed by sources that the Jets were -- with said TV reporter present -- "acting like frat boys."

Apparently, the reporter went into the locker room and was essentially treated to cat calls (or something close to it) and was "embarrassed, to the point of being close to tears."

Clearly, the NFL wouldn't be thrilled with this behavior, and sure enough, they're investigating it, as NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed to CBSSports.com that "the Jets and our office began looking into it as soon as we learned of it last night."

If the Jets did indeed behave as was reported, you can expect Roger Goodell to take this matter pretty seriously. He's stood by reasonably quietly while the Jets, ahem, swagger has let them become one of the most talked about teams in the NFL.

When it comes to something that could border on sexual harassment, though, you can bet the NFL won't sit idly by.
