Browns' Fujita says bounty charges "not true"
Browns linebacker Scott Fujita maintains innocence in New Orleans Saints' pay-for-hits scandal
By The Associated Press

BEREA, Ohio (AP) ' Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita says he is innocent in the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal.

Fujita, who spent four seasons with New Orleans, was suspended for three games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his alleged involvement in the pay-for-hits program. Fujita said he knows what actually happened and that it's been difficult being on public trial for something he says he didn't do. He's disappointed his reputation has been affected by the league's assertion he contributed money to the "bounty" pool.

Fujita is appealing his suspension and hopes to be vindicated because "my reputation is a lot more important to me than three game checks. My track record speaks for itself."

Fujita, an executive committee member with the players' union, says "there will come a time when I'll be willing to share everything."
