Lions get 7th-round pick back

The Detroit Lions will still lose one pick in the 2012 draft, but have had a seventh-round pick this year reinstated following an appeal on tampering charges, the NFL Network reported.

Commissioner Roger Goodell penalized the Lions on Feb. 18 for comments defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, who held the same role with Kansas City from 1995-2000, made about players still under contract with the Chiefs in February 2010.

"(Kansas City) keeps wanting to dump their players. I would like to be there to catch a lot of them because I know a couple of those guys," Cunningham told the Detroit Free Press before the start of free agency last offseason.

The paper also reported the Lions were cited for impermissible contact with S Jarrad Page, or his agent. Page was still under contract with the Chiefs but had requested a trade, and was dealt to New England last year.

Instead of a pick this year, the Lions will lose a pick in 2012, and must still exchange fifth-round picks this year (Kansas City gets Detroit's 140th overall pick and the Lions receive the Chiefs' 154th overall selection).
