Lions C Dominic Raiola Will Play For Veteran's Minimum In 2013
Less than two weeks ago, it was reported Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola restructured the final year of his contract, agreeing to take a pay cut to stay with the organization where he's played his entire 12-year career.
Before agreeing to restructure his deal, Raiola's base salary was scheduled to be $4.05 million. According to Mike O'Hara, columnist for the team's official website, the veteran center will now play for the league minimum in 2013. As a player with more than nine accrued seasons, Raiola will earn $940,000 next season.
The base salary reduction will trim Raiola's cap number to $2.95 million in 2013 and save the Lions $3.1 million.
