Scott Fujita, Roger Goodell to meet about Saints bounty scandal

Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, who was issued a suspension by the NFL for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty program, will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York at 1 p.m. ET Friday, according to a source briefed on the scheduling.

Fujita's league-imposed, three-game suspension was vacated by an appeals panel earlier this month, allowing him to play in each of the Browns' four games. He is one of four current and former Saints players to have been suspended by the NFL for their involvement in the pay-to-injure scheme.

Fujita's meeting with Goodell comes on the heels of the Browns' 23-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football.

Although Fujita's suspension was vacated, Goodell still has the power to suspend him and the other players under the "conduct detrimental" portion of the collective bargaining agreement.
