Lions OL Dominic Raiola fined $10K for unnecessary roughness


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Lions offensive lineman Dominic Raiola was fined $10,000 for unnecessary roughness for his actions in the final minute of Sunday's game against the Patriots, according to NFL spokesman Michael Signora.

The NFL fined Raiola as he unnecessarily struck his opponent on a pass play, violating Rule 12, Section 2, Article 12(c) of the NFL Rule Book which prohibits "striking, swinging at, or clubbing the head, neck, or face of an opponent with the wrist(s), arm(s), elbow(s), or hand(s)."

The play was a third-and-9 from the Detroit 35 with 57 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Raiola was not fined for his block on the final snap of the game.


Report: NFL will not suspend or fine Lions' Dominic Raiola


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Sources indicated Lions center Dominic Raiola will not receive a suspension or a fine from the NFL for his cut block at the end of Week 12’s game against New England, reports NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

The NFL was reviewing Raiola’s antics for a possible fine and suspension. Raiola spoke to reporters Tuesday and said there was nothing dirty about any of his plays and the lack of a fine or suspension proves the situation was overblown.

"I don't live life with regrets," he said, per the Detroit Free Press. "I didn't intentionally try to hurt anybody; I didn't try to do anything out of the ordinary. I would have gotten a FedEx letter for that, so just play the game. I didn't make it a big deal, everybody else did."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) If the NFL does suspend Lions center Dominic Raiola for his cut block at the end of Sunday’s game against New England, coach Jim Caldwell told reporters the team has a plan in place to replace Raiola, reports the Detroit Free Press.

The league is currently reviewing Raiola's cut block for a potential fine or suspension. He has started every game at center for the Lions this season.

Lions draft center Travis Swanson


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) With the 76th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Lions selected Arkansas center Travis Swanson. A starter for the last four seasons, Swanson is a smart, stout lineman with experience in run and zone blocking. He's a better run blocker than pass blocker. Expect Swanson to put some pressure on Lions veteran center Dominic Raiola in training camp. 

Lions hang on to center Dominic Raiola


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
