NFL commissioner Roger Goodell kicked off the annual rookie symposium Sunday evening by talking to the league's newest players. Goodell spent about an hour Sunday evening talking to 252 draft picks. "I opened it up for questions, and there wasn't a question about that," Goodell said of a potential lockout in 2011. "The fact they're here as NFL draft choices comes with a lot of responsibility," Goodell said. He said he didn't talk about Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger directly, but he discussed the player's responsibility to represent the league.
