Fallout from the NFL’s probe into New Orleans’ bounty program continues to strike in ways and with people with close ties to the city and the Super Bowl season.

The latest is that former linebacker Scott Fujita, beloved by many in New Orleans for his creative trash-talking and love of the city, is being named in conjunction with the bounty pool.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) says that Fujita, now with the Browns, is being “dragged” into the ever-evolving scandal.

Complicating matters for Fujita – he’s a member of the NFL Players Association’s executive committee and a vocal advocate for player safety.
