Browns LB Scott Fujita, facing a three-game suspension with the NFL alleging he was part of the Saints’ pay-for-performance scandal, once again denied his involvement Tuesday.

Asked if he had evidence to clear his name, Fujita said: “Right now, it’s just my word against theirs, and it’s a tough situation to be in. Can I go to bed at night, look myself in the mirror and know what actually happened? Yes. But it’s an uphill battle. Can I go toe-to-toe with the media and all that kind of stuff? It’s a challenging prospect.”

Fujita repeatedly said Tusday he stood by previous statements on the bounty allegations.

“I have never contributed money to any so-called “bounty” pool, and any statements to the contrary are false,” he said in a statement released on his website in May.

When asked if he believed if he would be playing in Week One instead of out of action, Fujita said Tuesday: "We'll see. I'm very optimistic. I'm always a hopeful guy, but I can only control what I can control right now, and that's getting myself ready to play."

Fujita, 33, played for New Orleans from 2006-09. He is entering his third season with Cleveland. Fujita said the Browns have backed him throughout the bounty allegations.

 “They’ve been incredibly supportive, and I appreciate that very much,” he said.
