Will The Lions Lose A Draft Pick For Tampering?

I had meant to write about this back when it first came out that the Detroit Lions had lost a 7th round pick, and dropped 14 spots in the fifth round, for allegedly tampering with a player under contract. It had to do with Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, who had made a comment about one of his former players from the Chiefs. It's not a huge loss, and it's not going to hold the Lions down as they crawl back to relevance in the NFC North, but every pick helps.

As Pride of Detroit points out, the player in question's agent (Patriots S Jarrad Page) says Page and the Lions didn't have any contact. An interesting little power struggle between two teams.
