New York Jets safety Ed Reed and corner Antonio Cromartie are trying to promote turnovers for the defense by wearing "Wanted" shirts, but they claim there is no bounty program involved.

ESPNNewYork.com's Jane McManus tweeted a picture of Cromartie wearing the shirt:

The shirts feature a football and the words "WANTED: In the air or on the ground. $20,000."

Given all of the criticism the league faced with the bounty system in 2012, Reed was quick to shoot it down to reporters, via ESPNNewYork.com's Rich Cimini.

"No, I'm not offering 20 grand for a turnover," Reed said. "I like how you tried to work that. It's a shirt, man. I like how you did that. It's funny how you guys twist our words."

The Jets have forced only seven turnovers this season, which is tied with the San Diego Chargers for the fewest in the league.

Hat tip to Larry Brown Sports for the find.
