The team's longest-tenured player started a franchise-record 203 games in the Motor City. After a strong campaign in 2013, though, Raiola -- Detroit's second-round pick in 2001 -- ranked as the 37th center in the league in 2014, per Pro Football Focus.
That's not all. Raiola also admitted taking a cheap shot with his cut-block of Patriots defensive tackle Zach Moore on the last play of Detroit's Week 11 loss to New England. This came one season after the Lions were forced to apologize for their untoward center "hurling gay slurs at members of the University of Wisconsin band during halftime" of a loss to the Packers.
