The New Orleans Saints have been fined, and stripped of a draft pick, due to their repeated violations of the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols during the 2020 season.

The Saints will lose their sixth-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft, and will pay a fine of $700,000, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

From unmasked celebrations in the locker room after games, to Alvin Kamara reportedly refusing to wear his contract tracing device, the Saints had multiple violations of the league’s protocols throughout the season.
