BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns linebacker Scott Fujita says he plans to reschedule his postponed meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the Saints bounty scandal.
Fujita had planned to speak with Goodell via a video conference from a Cleveland law office on Tuesday, but the league called it off because it wanted a face-to-face meeting. Fujita said he received an email Monday evening requesting the in-person meeting. Fujita was unable to travel to New York because he’s still receiving treatment on an injured left knee.
Fujita said “we’ll figure something out” and he’s confident he will meet in the near future with Goodell. Fujita was initially suspended three games for his involvement in the pay-for-hits program. However, an appeals panel recently overturned his suspension, allowing the 33-year-old to rejoin the Browns.
Fujita has maintained his innocence since the scandal surfaced in March.
