Many of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s penalties against the Saints have either been reduced or eliminated, including the suspensions of all four players who were initially sanctioned. But one thing that won’t change is Goodell’s stance on removing the team’s second-round draft choice in 2013.

Goodell said today in a question and answer session with fans on Reddit.com today that the draft choice removal won’t be changed.

“No, the penalty will continue to include the second-round draft choice in 2013,” he said.
