This Sept.2012 file photo shows Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita looking on before an NFL football game against the Philadelphia Eagles, in Cleveland. Fujita has criticized NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the way he has handled his suspension in the New Orleans Saints' bounty case. Fujita had his three-game suspension reduced to one on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, by Goodell, who sent the veteran a letter. Fujita says he's pleased Goodell acknowledged he never participated in the pay-for-hits program, but did not like the commissioner's "condescending tone" in a letter to the linebacker.
