The original punishment doled out by the league had the Chiefs and Lions swapping fifth round picks -- from the 23rd to the 9th pick in the round -- and Detroit losing a seventh round pick.
The Lions seventh round pick has been restored for the 2011 NFL draft but they will lose a pick in the 2012 draft instead -- we just don't know which one yet.
ESPN's Mike Sando first reported the news and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk followed up with a report that the Lions will lose a sixth round pick in 2012 if they make the playoffs and a seventh round pick in 2012 if they don't make the playoffs.
That's assuming we, you know, have a 2012 draft.
But rest easy, draftniks. The Chiefs 14 spot boost in the fifth round is safe.
