Scott Fujita retires as a Saint

Linebacker Scott Fujita signed a one-day contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday and then announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Fujita signed his contract in Machu Picchu, which is located in the Andes Mountains in Peru. He's there with former Saints teammate Steve Gleason, who is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In a statement from the team, Fujita said he couldn't think of a better place to be to announce his retirement.

"What better place to reach the end of the road than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?"

Fujita was one of four players suspended by the NFL in its investigation of the Saints' bounty program but fought to clear his name of the three-game ban. Commissioner Roger Goodell later reduced Fujita's suspension to one game before the suspensions of all players implicated were later vacated by former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

The 33-year-old Fujita, who played for the Cleveland Browns the past three seasons, helped the Saints win a Super Bowl during his time with the team (2006-09).

Fujita was credited with four tackles in the Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys.

He has 767 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and seven interceptions in 143 career games.

"I've been fortunate to play in this league for a long time and for some great organizations, but there is no doubt that my times spent in New Orleans were some of the best years of my life," Fujita said in the statement.

"The way the team and the community embraced us when we first arrived, and the way they continue to do so, even today, shows how deep this connection is. I'm honored to be a part of this organization and so proud to retire as a New Orleans Saint."

General manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton pointed out in the team's statement that Fujita was the first player the team signed in free agency after Payton became the team's coach in 2006.

"It was an important acquisition for us, getting a player of his caliber to come to New Orleans despite the conditions [post-Hurricane Katrina] for a number of reasons because he saw an opportunity to become involved in the rebuilding of the city, yet quickly realized how important the team was to that effort," Loomis said.

Payton called Fujita "a cornerstone of the foundation that we've built and we won a World Championship together.

"It's been said that when you win a championship together, you walk together for the rest of your lives and that's certainly appropriate to celebrate on a day like today."


^That's the best part of this story.

Did he demand the trade to the Cowboys or did the Chiefs just undervalue him?

hopefully it's speculation. we don't need to rely on that for a 2nd season in a row. we need to either draft a MLB or Irving needs to be the MLB we expected him to be when he was drafted.

How did I not hear about the Revis trade before today?

Everyone seems to be glossing over this, or did I miss something?

Broncos are still actively courting Freeney. Next 48 hours may accelerate that process.

That's a solid move by the Browns and the price was right.

Bess has 321 receptions in 5 seasons.

This is how the trade went down:

Belichick: "Mark, listen up, we want to swing a trade for this guy Demps, he doesn't want to play football but he can run like a mother****er."

Mark Dominik: "Bill, long time no see, how is the family holding up? did you ever get that snafu with Faust sorted out?"

Belichick: "Doing just fine, been drinking the blood of the innocent just like the Dr ordered. That whole Faust business is taken care of now. Listen, Mark, Demps, the kids love him and he played in Florida recently so some of your fans may still remember his name, at least the ones who aren't outright senile."

Mark Dominik: "Hmmm, well we could use a fast guy for sure, but if he doesn't want to play football I can't really offer you much in return. How about this though, you get our slow fat guy who shows up late, and we get your skinny fast guy who doesn't show up at all?"

Belichick: "You got a deal broseph, I knew we could work something out."

Which is why I didn't take him in last year's OM draft. You could see this **** coming a mile down the road. Same with Tyrann and Ogletree this year.

Gabbert is so not starting now. Blackmon was his only hope and he still played better when Henne was the QB and not Blaine.

Saints | Malcolm Jenkins could be moved to nickel CB
Tue, 30 Apr 2013 17:54:45 -0700

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said Tuesday, April 30, that the team is considering a scenario which will get S Kenny Vaccaro on the field. It would require moving FS Malcolm Jenkins to nickel cornerback on passing downs.


They should just swap us Jenkins or Harper for Tony Carter.

I had him last year and it sucked big time. Wasn't as if he was a high pick anyway though, you knew somebody had to throw to him and I knew that guy throwing it to him wasn't even drafted.....hahaha.
