Report: Lions’ Dominic Raiola Agrees To Restructure Contract

When Detroit Lions veteran center Dominic Raiola turns 35 in December, one of the most tenured offensive linemen in the league could be approaching the final weeks of his stellar NFL career.

On Thursday, Raiola agreed to restructure the final season of his four-year, $20 million contract, the Detroit Free-Press reported. For the Lions, it’s part of a continued reshuffling to get under the salary cap before free agency begins next month. The pay cut could ensure that Raiola will return to the Lions for a 13th season. Raiola would have had a $6.06 million cap hit for 2013 if the Lions were unable to restructure his contract.
