Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions have re-signed veteran C Dominic Raiola to a one-year deal.

Raiola took a pay cut of close $3 million last season, which brought his 2013 salary to $950,000.

Raiola, 35, had said that he was hoping to remain with the Lions this offseason and the fact that he is coming off of a solid 2013 season made this seem like a plausible move. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 2 center in the league this season.

We’ll have more regarding the details of his contract as the news is available.
