New York Jets' Santonio Holmes leaves the Jets' locker room in Florham Park, N.J., Monday, Jan. 2, 2012. The Jets season ended without a playoff game after a season filled with inconsistent play, some in-fighting and lost opportunities.

Guard Matt Slauson tells reporters that Ryan cried at the team meeting "because he loves us." Linebacker Bart Scott snarled at a photographer, using an expletive, and then used an obscene hand gesture.

Several players were already gone, and a few — including the normally media-friendly Darrelle Revis — chose to not speak.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes, benched Sunday after arguing with teammates in the huddle, was escorted out of the locker room by a public relations staff member without talking.
