Saints Bounty Probe Now Includes Browns LB Scott Fujita, According To Report

This bounty probe story has legs, appearing to have run to Cleveland and found Browns linebacker Scott Fujita

Fans can now put at least one face with the name "bounty" which has overtaken NFL headlines over the past few days, now that Cleveland Browns outside linebacker Scott Fujita, who spent four seasons total with the New Orleans Saints and played under Gregg Williams, has been implicated as a participant in the Saints bounty probe, according to a report by ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

"Ex-Saint and current #Browns LB Scott Fujita getting dragged into bounty probe, per sources. NFLPA exec committee member, good guy, too. #NFL32" - @mortreport via Twitter

Fujita played for the Saints from 2006 to 2009, before joining the Browns two seasons ago. Fujita played in 56 games for New Orleans and recorded 247 tackles in that time period.

Williams, the Saints' former defensive coordinator, had been investigated by the league since 2010 about allegedly paying players extra bonus money to deliver big hits to certain players.

Williams, now with the St. Louis Rams, is expected to meet with league security officials Monday to discuss the situation.

Fajita started 10 games for the Browns last season, while recording 37 tackles, 24 unassisted.
