Like it or not, Scott Fujita will always be linked to the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal by some.
Others will think of Fujita as a linebacker on the team’s Super Bowl championship team.
Either way, Fujita went out as a Saint on Monday when he signed a one-day contract with the club to officially retire. According to the Associated Press, Fujita signed his contract from Machu Picchu, Peru, where he is traveling.
Fujita was suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for one game for his role in the team’s bounty scandal, one Fujita vehemently denied. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue later lifted the suspension for Fujita, who spent the previous three seasons as a member of the Cleveland Browns.
