NFL Trade Rumors:
Roger Goodell fielded questions during a chat on Reddit this afternoon and was asked if the Saints would get their 2013 second round pick back.
“The penalty will continue to include the 2nd round draft choice in 2013,” said Goodell of the team’s punishment, per Terrance Harris of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The Saints continue to feel the effects of their bounty scandal. For a team attempting to switch its defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4, not having a second-round pick to work with is a pretty big inconvenience. It will be interesting to see what they can do in free agency to find some extra help for what was a historically bad defense this season.

Roger Goodell took time out of his busy pre-Super Bowl schedule to hold an AMA, or ask me anything, on Reddit Monday afternoon.
The commish avoided questions like “If Jonathan Vilma and a dog were trapped in a car on fire and you could only save one of them, what would you name the dog?” from Reddit user vitey15, but he did tackle some controversial issues.
One question Goodell...

This comes as no surprise to me, as I have always been an outspoken critic of Goodell’s hypocritical agendas under the flag of “player safety.” But my opinion doesn’t matter, so I am...

There are various reasons why players in general don’t like Roger Goodell, but I think it is summed up best by Steelers James Harrison.
“I think it’s obvious that I disapprove.” Harrison has been fined more than $100,000 in his career for hits the NFL has deemed against the rules.
“I feel like what he’s doing is not totally for...
Hard to believe, but the Pro Bowl just got funnier. During Train’s performance, one of the Pro Bowl dancers got a little excited and exaggerated her jump, letting her shirt ride up and showing off an elite level camel toe in the process. Commissioner Roger Goodell may opt to suspend her for leading with the lobster claw.
She looks naked, but she’s not naked; just...

Peyton Manning urged the Pro Bowl players to take the game seriously and to play hard so that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t get rid of the game. It appears as though J.J. Watt received that message loud and clear. Even after the injury, Watt continued playing, and had a special message for the Commissioner telling him that they’re playing hard. You have to love...
