Fujita, Goodell likely to talk Friday
With Cleveland scheduled to play Thursday night against Baltimore, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is likely to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Saturday.
Saints Bounty Scandal
An NFL investigation found the New Orleans Saints operated a bounty system that rewarded 22 to 27 players for hard hits and for injuring opposing players. Profile »
Fujita is the only player linked to the bounty scandal who has not met with Goodell since an appeals panel overturned the suspensions of players for their roles in New Orleans' pay-for-pain bounty scandal. Fujita was banned three games.
Fujita had originally planned to speak with Goodell via a video conference from a Cleveland law office last 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 has maintained his innocence since the scandal surfaced in March.
