06:56 AM ET 04.24 | In a way, Scott Fujita went out on top. [Fujita] has signed a one-day contract so that he can retire as a New Orleans Saint, and it's tough to beat how he did it: at Machu Picchu in Peru. Fujita traveled to the Andes Mountains with former Saints teammate Steve Gleason, who is currently fighting Lou Gehrig's Disease. "What better place to reach the end of the road," Fujita said in a statement, "than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?" Fujita, age 33, played four seasons with New Orleans, including their Super Bowl XLIV victory. He played his last three seasons with the Cleveland Browns, and also spent time with the Chiefs and Cowboys.

OK, that's kinda cool.

Definitely out of box thinking...

I'm waiting for the part about the stone alter and the bloody knife, though.

Those South American civilizations were into human sacrifice, and lethal injection wasn't the way they did it.

Season finale next week. It's been picked up for another season, but I'm going to miss my weekly dose of pillaging. Capital One ads only go so far.

Yeah - and with Game of Thrones going into week 5 of 10, pillaging and mayhem is going to be sorely lacking soon.

I've gotta check that out, but I don't get HBO. I think I need to do a bit of undercover work.

He should open a restaurant now. Call it Fujita's Fajitas. In Peru, on that mountain top.

Personally, I think Waikiki would have been a much better place...

All these one day contracts....is there some sort of financial benefit to players retiring from one team versus another? Otherwise, do they really think it means anything? People know who you played for during your career. Whatever....so long as it makes the player feel good and special we'll all pretend your career ended with the team you did not play your last season for!!

Me neither. He went to the Andes. Big deal. And what's the Andes have to do with a retirement, anyway?

Like you said, I don't get it.

Yes, Machu Pichu is a very big deal.
Ashame you can't appreciate that.
Don't you enjoy the beauty atop Sandia Crest?
Or do you prefer the wildlife on Central Av?
