Scott Fujita 'Very Optimistic' About Being On Field For Week One

Following the media availability session after the Cleveland Browns first organized team activities on Tuesday, suspended linebacker Scott Fujita expressed that he feels optimistic that he will be available to play in the first game of the regular season. Fujita is appealing the three-game suspension he is facing for his alledged involvement in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.

Fujita has denied any involvement in the bounty scandal, suggesting that he hasn't even seen any evidence from the league in a released statement, and has officially appealed. He and other players will have an arbitration hearing on May 30 to argue the suspensions.

He stated that being put on trial in public has been difficult to deal with and said that he looks forward to sharing his side of the story at a later date.
