Lions Get 7th Round Pick Back

Per, the Lions “won” their appeal to the league for the tampering charges levelled against them several weeks ago.  The Lions still will be punished for tampering, but the punishment was re-evaluated based on the value of draft picks in a lockout scenario.

The Lions get their 2011 7th round pick back but will forfeit a conditional pick in the 2012 draft.  If the Lions make the playoffs they will lose their 6th round pick in 2012 and if they miss the playoffs it will be a 7th rounder.  The Lions will still swap 5th rounders with the Chiefs in 2011.
