Despite Bounty Browns LB Scott Fujita Committed to Playing in 2012

Browns linebacker Scott Fujita told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer today that’s still 100% committed to playing in 2012 despite all of the issues he’s facing as a result of the Saints’ bounty scandal.

“While there have certainly been some unexpected challenges this off-season, which are beyond my control right now, I can’t let that distract me from getting myself as prepared as possible to play this season,” said Fujita in an email response. “Obviously I’m a lot closer to the end of my career than I am to the beginning, so the time to win is now.

“I love my teammates & defensive coaches, I’m excited about our new additions, and I’m looking forward to seeing this team improve. I want to win, and I want to help this team win.”

Fujita, who attended a grievance hearing last week in Philadelphia, has steadfastly maintained that he never paid a teammate to injure an opponent and never contributed directly to a bounty pool. The grievance and appeals processes will play out the next several months.

In the meantime, Fujita will focus on minicamp and helping lead this defense in 2012.
