DETROIT - Dominic Raiola spent 14 seasons with the Detroit Lions and endured some of the most difficult years in franchise history. Leonard Fournette Jersey .Perhaps that explains the bond he still feels toward the city, even though hell no longer play his home games in Motown.Ive made Detroit my home. People ask me when Im moving back to Hawaii, Im not, Raiola said Tuesday. So, this is home for me now and Ive made a home here. Its very humbling to be in this position that I am.The Lions have told Raiola he isnt part of their plans for next season, meaning the veteran centre will be a free agent after playing the first 14 years of his career with Detroit. He says he thinks he can keep playing, but now hell have to find another team.Raiola set a franchise record with 203 starts, and hes one of three players to appear in at least 200 games for the Lions.In many ways, hes a throwback who couldve played in any era of the NFL, general manager Martin Mayhew said in a statement. He should take pride in the fact that he is one of the most durable players in this teams history, as proven by his longevity, and that he helped lead us to two playoff berths in the past four seasons. We wish him nothing but the very best in all his future endeavours.The Lions missed the playoffs in Raiolas first 10 seasons, including an 0-16 showing in 2008, but the Honolulu native was still a part of the starting lineup when Detroit reached the post-season two of the last four seasons. This season the Lions were a wild card, losing their playoff opener at Dallas.I think the last ones going to stand out. I mean, you can say the 2011 playoff year because it was so special and a lot of people made it about the guys that were left over from the 0-16 team, Raiola said. But I think theyre going to look back at this season and say that was a step for Lions coming to whats ahead of them. I think good things are ahead. I know good things are ahead.Raiolas longevity and his postgame candour made him one of the most recognizable Detroit players, but he also exasperated fans on occasion. He was fined this past season for unnecessary roughness in a game at New England, and he was suspended for the regular-season finale at Green Bay after stepping on a Chicago player the previous weekend.I played with passion, he said. Yeah it was controversial at times, but when you live in the city, nobody knows that unless you live in the city. If youre one with the city you understand the passion I play with, what I brought every day. It was grouped together.The Lions drafted centre Travis Swanson in the third round last year, and he seems to be the most likely candidate to take over the position now.Hes going to do great, Raiola said. Hes a tough dude. Hes smart. I mean, youve got to be smart to be a centre. The Lions are in good hands with him and Im glad I can leave what I did and move on to Travis. Couldnt happen to a better guy.Raiola signed a one-year deal last off-season that kept him with the Lions for 2014, and this was arguably Detroits most successful season of his time with the franchise.I put a lot of my career on grouping myself with the city. You heard me say that over and over, Raiola said. One thing if I could apologize to people in the city is that Im sorry that we couldnt be more successful and ultimately win a championship while I was here. ... Some people can take it how they want, but the real fans know that I really mean that and that it really comes from my heart.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cam Robinson Womens Jersey . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. Dawuane Smoot Jaguars Jersey . James scored 25 points against his former team, leading the energized Heat to a 114-107 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Dwyane Wade added 24 points and Chris Bosh had 22 for the Heat, idle since a 90-84 loss Tuesday at Indiana. http://www.authorityjaguarsshop.com/dede-westbrook-jaguars-jersey-c-59/ . The 12th-ranked Haas served well throughout the match at the Ibirapuera arena, allowing only one break point to the 152nd-ranked Italian. Both players held serve until the first-set tiebreak, when Haas stepped up his game to easily clinch the set.VANCOUVER - Offensive lineman Ben Archibald has retired, the B.C. Lions announced Friday. The CFL club has also released veteran linebacker Anton McKenzie. Archibald spent three seasons with B.C. after signing as a free agent in 2011. He began his CFL career with the Calgary Stampeders in 08. Overall, Archibald appeared in 102 career regular-season games, six playoff contests and two Grey Cup victories (08 with Calgary, 11 with B.C.). "I was very blessed to enjoy a great CFL career," Archibald said in a statement. "I am grateful for the opportunity to have played for two great organizations in Calgary and B.C. and I will always treasure the memories from my time in the CFL." Added Lions GM Wally Buono: "BBen brought a quiet professionalism to the B. Cam Robinson Jersey. . Lions and he was a great example of the complete player; good on the field, good in the dressing room and a great role model as a husband, father and teammate. We wish him and his family the very best in the future." McKenzie spent five seasons with B.C., appearing in 69 regular-season games. He began his CFL career with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and earned Grey Cup rings with both clubs (07 with Saskatchewan, 11 with B.C.) "Anton gave everything he had each and every time he had the opportunity to do so," Lions head coach Mike Benevides said. "He has a very bright future ahead of him and were grateful for his services as a Lion."
