Linebacker Scott Fujita is currently away in Peru and decided to sign a one-day contract to retire as a member of the New Orleans Saints. “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 said. “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.” Fujita, 33, signed his contract provided to him by the Saints in Machu Picchu, located in the Andes Mountains in the Urubamba Valley in Peru, South America. He is accompanying former New Orleans Saints teammate Steve Gleason on an adventure of the fabled Inca tribe in the South American mountains. Gleason, the founder of Team Gleason, is leading a valiant battle against ALS and raising awareness while continuing to forge forward on memorable experiences despite physical limitations. “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 finished his career with 598 tackles, 11 forced fumbles, and 7 interceptions.

Many moons ago I happened to be living right outside of San Francisco when Joe Montana retired. I had nothing to do and had the means to get into the city so I went to the ceremony. 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.
