Lions Staying Quiet on the Recent Tampering Charges

The Free Press reports today that the Lions are still staying quiet on the recent tampering charges they were hit with by the Chiefs, and are just going to let the process play out.

The Detroit Lions insist they want to move on from the tampering charge the NFL found them guilty of last month, but they continue to let questions linger on whether they appealed the verdict. Lions president Tom Lewand declined to say today whether the team formally appealed the punishment that cost them a seventh-round draft choice and forced them to swap fifth-round picks with the Kansas City Chiefs.

“I don’t think we really need to get into that,” Lewand said in a teleconference with reporters to discuss the NFL lockout. “I think we’ve said what we needed to say on that. Both Martin (Mayhew) and Jim (Schwartz) addressed it down in Indianapolis and we’ll let the process play itself out with the league. And again no matter what happened, I said this when it was filed a long time ago, no matter what happens we’ll be prepared to move forward and we are.”
