Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita will appeal his three-game suspension for his involvement in the Saints bounty scandal, according to ESPN'S Adam Schefter.
All 4 player suspensions will be appealed, per source who said, "Get ready for a massive multiple legal battle over this on several fronts."— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 2, 2012
The NFL's release stated that Fujita contribute a significant amount of money to the bounty pool, particularly during the 2009 Playoffs.
The Browns' linebacker is a leader in the NFLPA, which, according to Schefter, is prepared to fight the suspensions in a legal forum. Fujita will be permitted to practice with the Browns and partake in training camp and the preseason before his suspension kicks in, while Jonathan Vilma may not have contact with the team during his full season suspension.
