VIDEO: Scott Fujita Addresses 3 Game Suspension For Role In Saints Bounty Scandal

The Browns first set of OTAs got underway in Berea on Tuesday morning, and there were a couple of storylines the media wanted to address in their first shot at access this offseason. The first was Colt McCoy, who spoke to the press corps at the Browns facility for the first time since Brandon Weeden was drafted to presumably take his job. The second was linebacker Scott Fujita, who had issued statements regarding his three-game suspension for his role in the Saints bounty scandal, but had yet to address the press at large. As you might expect, Fujita was guarded but said he's fighting an uphill battle in the press. He also stood by his former teammate Jonathan Vilma, saying he was a man of "high character" and one of the best teammates he's ever had. Video with his complete comments after the jump:
