NFL commissioner: Saints not getting 2nd round draft pick back for 2013

captureDuring a web chat Monday on the site Reddit, a participant asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell if the Saints will be allowed to make their 2nd-round draft pick that was forfeited last year because of the team’s punishment for the bounty scandal.

Goodell responded, “No, the penalty will continue to include the 2nd round draft choice in 2013.”

It is the first time the commissioner has spoken publicly on the draft pick since the penalty was imposed.
