Fujita: Players embarrassed by Chudzinski firing

Former Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita has joined the chorus of people sounding off against the franchise for its’ one-and-done firing of head coach Rob Chudzinski.

According to, Fujita said the Browns organization seems like a ship without a rudder. The former Brown also said he spoke with current players about the firing of Chudzinski and they were bewildered by the move.

“I talked to some of the players right after they fired (Chudzinski) and they sounded deflated, confused and frankly embarrassed by what happen,” the outspoken Fujita said. “I’ve been out of football for a year now and I’m a fan of the Cleveland Browns. It’s hard to watch what is going on there. I really feel bad for the fans and players like D’Qwell (Jackson) and Joe Thomas who have been there for so long.”

The Browns are the only NFL team remaining that has yet to hire a new coach. This uncertainty makes the draft and free agency nearly impossible for the club to prepare for since the team has no idea what type of system a new coach will install.
