NEW YORK (WKOW) -- The New York Jets are on the defensive over allegations that players and coaches sexually harassed a female reporter in the team's locker room.

The team's owner has apologized but the controversy isn't over yet.

Reportedly, several Jets players catcalled and taunted Ines Sainz, a sports reporter in Mexico, in the locker room on Saturday and coaches threw passes on the field so they would land near her.

Sainz tweeted she was "dying of embarrassment," calling the atmosphere "uncomfortable."

Woody Johnson, the team's owner, apologized to her personally.

"The Jets have already taken steps to address with the team proper conduct in the workplace," said Greg Aiello, a spokesman for the NFL.

But the reporter's plunging neckline has brought into question her professionalism. Sainz defended herself posting a photo on Twitter of what she was that day.
