Browns linebacker Scott Fujita, who is suspended for the first three games of the season for his role in the Saints’ bounty scandal, still hasn’t gone into much detail about what, exactly, his role was. But Fujita did acknowledge that former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams sometimes went too far in his comments to his players.
Even though Fujita was no longer a member of the Saints at the time, he was in the room when Williams delivered his infamous speech urging the Saints to injure players on the 49ers before their playoff meeting in January. And even though Fujita says he likes Williams, he knows Williams can be excessive in the way he fires up his players.
“There are certainly things that are inappropriate that have been said,” Fujita said. “I’m not proud of things that were said by Gregg Williams, who, at the same time, is a man I respect and enjoyed playing for.”
As for himself, however, Fujita doesn’t seem to think he went too far.
“I don’t have any regrets for anything I’ve ever done,” Fujita said. “I think you look back and you say things in meetings occasionally, and, again, the pre-game hype speech and bravado, it’s all kind of funny the next day and you laugh about it. I don’t regret anything.”
