Fujita Appeals Suspenion Over Role in “BountyGate”

Browns linebacker Scott Fujita today denied his involvement in the Saints bounty program and filed a letter today reserving his right to appeal his suspension at a later date according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The appeal is pending the resolution of a grievance filed by the NFLPA last week regarding the suspensions.

“I disagree wholeheartedly with the discipline imposed,” Fujita said in a statement sent to the Plain Dealer today. “I’ve yet to hear the specifics of any allegation against me, nor have I seen any evidence that supports what the NFL alleges in its press release. I look forward to the opportunity to confront what evidence they claim to have in the appropriate forum. Until then, I stand by my previous comments.

“I have never contributed money to any so-called “bounty” pool, and any statements to the contrary are false. To say I’m disappointed with the League would be a huge understatement.”
