Cleveland Browns’ LB Scott Fujita had hoped that his suspension would be reduced through appeal. That will not be the case.
CBS Sports is reporting that Roger Goodell has upheld the suspensions for all players involved in the Saints ‘Bounty Program’. Fujita, who was suspended for the first three games of this season without pay will be able to participate in training camp and pre-season games, but will miss games against the Eagles, Bengals and Bills.
Goodell says in letter to players they have offered no evidence to contradict his earlier rulings.
