Of the four players hit with a suspension for participating in the New Orleans Saints’ Bounty Scandal, one has a fairly memorable connection to the Dallas Cowboys.
Linebacker Scott Fujita played three seasons with Kansas City before coming to Dallas for the 2005 season. In the lone season that he was a Cowboy, Fujita was a big contributor, playing in all 16 games, recording 53 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles. Following in the footsteps of Sean Payton, he left Dallas for New Orleans in 2006.
Fujita is now a Brown (he signed with Cleveland in 2010), but because the league says he actively participated in the bounty program while with New Orleans, he was suspended for the first three games of the 2012 season on Wednesday--when the league meted out punishment for Saints players.
It was announced that the aforementioned Payton was suspended for the entire season several weeks ago.
