Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita is expected to deny the existence of an orchestrated bounty system when he meets with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday, according to an ESPN story. Fujita is the final player to meet with Goodell after an appeals panel ruled to lift the suspensions of the four players who were punished. Like his former New Orleans Saints teammates, Fujita will reinforce the notion that such a program never existed. He has maintained his innocence since the scandal surfaced in March. The meeting between the two had originally been scheduled via a video conference from a Cleveland law office, but the league cancelled it because it wanted a face-to-face meeting. An announcement by Goodell is expected Monday or Tuesday of next week, as to whether Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Anthony Hargrove and Fujita will be disciplined.
