Former NFL linebacker Scott Fujita announced his retirement on Monday in a very unique manner. He did it while sitting on top of a mountain.
The 33-year-old spent four seasons of his career with the New Orleans Saints and won a Super Bowl with them in 2010. Despite the fact that he played for four teams throughout his 12-year career, Fujita felt the strongest connection with the Saints. Having most recently played with the Cleveland Browns, Fujita decided to sign a one-day contract with New Orleans on Monday to retire with the Saints. He did so at the top of a peak in Machu Picchu.
“What better place to reach the end of the road than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?” Fujita said, via Eye on Football. “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.

I'll never forget it--this guy passed around a parody of some song pretty much praising Joe. When we sang it (we were right next to the stage) he looked over and commented--very cool.
Scott Fujita has been a very good football player for many years since being drafted in the 5th round by the Chiefs way back in 2002, but has been battling a neck injury he suffered during the week 5 game last season while with the Browns. He was placed on season ending injured reserve shortly after that injury and is possibly looking to have surgery in the near future.
