Linebacker Scott Fujita called it a career Monday, after signing a one-day contract so he can officially retire a member of the New Orleans Saints.
Fujita, 33, spent four of his eleven NFL seasons with the Saints. During that time in New Orleans, Fujita played in two NFC Championship games and won Super Bowl XLIV against the Indianapolis Colts. He also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns.
“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 told the team’s website.
“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.”
The former fifth-round selection recorded 598 tackles, 23.5 sacks, eleven forced fumbles and seven interceptions during his professional career.
