The Falcons will be getting more than a slap on the wrist for skirting the NFL’s rules.

The league is expected to take a draft pick away from Atlanta and suspend team president Rich McCay from the competition committee after it was recently discovered the team was pumping in fake crowd noise, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It is not known which pick the Falcons could lose. The team could also face a fine.

The punishment is expected to be announced on Tuesday.
