In a statement released on his website, Browns linebacker Scott Fujita says he's "yet to hear the specifics of any allegation against me, nor have I seen any evidence that supports what the NFL alleges in its press release."

Since the NFL announced the player punishment from the Saints bounty program, we’ve heard tidbits here and there from Jonathan Vilma (or, at least, his counsel), and we’ve seen the declaration made by Anthony Hargrove to the NFL.
Now, current Browns linebacker Scott Fujita -- who was hit with a three-game suspension -- has responded with a statement on his website, decrying the punishment he received.
Here’s what Fujita wrote:
I disagree wholeheartedly with the discipline imposed. I’ve yet to hear the specifics of any allegation against me, nor have I seen any evidence that supports what the NFL alleges in its press release.
I look forward to the opportunity to confront what evidence they claim to have in the appropriate forum. Until then, I stand by my previous comments. I have never contributed money to any so-called “bounty” pool, and any statements to the contrary are false.
To say I’m disappointed with the League would be a huge understatement.
Any further questions can be directed to my union.
So far, we’ve heard nothing from defensive end Will Smith. But for now, the decision, once again, rests in the hands of Roger Goodell. Which probably isn’t a great omen for the players who want their suspensions reduced.
