Fujita calls NFL's bounty approach 'smear campaign'

Scott Fujita, who has been suspended for three games for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty program, continues to call the NFL out on its investigation of the matter.

Fujita, now with the Cleveland Browns, had some stinging words for the league through the Associated Press.

"I'm not saying the NFL is intentionally lying," Fujita said. "I've been willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they may have just been working with the information they've been given, even though much of that information was inaccurate and lacked credibility.

"It's their cavalier interpretation of everything that's been way off. They clearly proceeded with a public smear campaign with very little regard for the truth."

Fujita has been an outspoken critic of the league's player safety approach over the years as one of the leaders of the NFL Players Association. He has butted heads with the commissioner's office regarding concussions in the past.
