NEW YORK (AP) - Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for about one hour Friday about his suspension in the Saints' bounty case that was temporarily lifted earlier this month.

Fujita was suspended for three games for his role in the bounty program while he played for New Orleans. He missed a meeting last week with Goodell while recuperating from a knee injury, and was not granted a video conference meeting with the commissioner.

Previously, Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith, still with the Saints, and Anthony Hargrove, now a free agent, met with Goodell after an appeals panel ruled Goodell must redefine the parameters of the suspensions, showing they were for an intent-to-injure program.

Vilma was suspended for the entire season, Smith for four games, Hargrove for eight.
