Raiola signs 1-year deal with Lions

AP - Sports

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit center Dominic Raiola is returning for a 14th season with the Lions.

Agent Kenny Zuckerman says Raiola has signed a one-year deal and hopes to help Detroit reach the postseason this year. The Lions have missed the playoffs the last two seasons.

Raiola was drafted by the Lions in 2001 and has played for Detroit his entire career. He's started all 16 games in each of the last five seasons.

He was not charged with a single sack allowed last season, the first time in his career he'd accomplished that.

Detroit went 7-9 last season and coach Jim Schwartz was fired. Jim Caldwell is replacing Schwartz.
