Paul Tagliabue has come down with his ruling and, despite agreeing with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's finding, vacated the player suspensions in the Saints bounty case.
This made for one happy Saints quarterback.
Congratulations to our players for having the suspensions vacated. Unfortunately, there are some things that can never be taken back— Drew Brees (@drewbrees) December 11, 2012
All of those suspended Saints should be feeling good right now, particularly Scott Fujita, who was exonerated in Tagliabue's findings. Fujita, who is now with the Browns has said since day one that he did nothing wrong.
Absolutely thrilled for my teammate Scott Fujita.Great guy.Great player.Great outcome.— Phil Dawson (@phil_dawson_4) December 11, 2012
