Lions | Raiola excited about new offense

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions C Dominic Raiola is excited about the team's new offensive approach under offensive coordinator Jim Colletto. Raiola said it will give everyone a chance to do what offensive lineman like to do, which is run the football. He said Colletto brings a run-first mentality to the offense. Raiola said former offensive coordinator Mike Martz had a different approach and liked to pass the ball before running it. Raiola feels the team will not lose any aggressiveness with their new offense, it is just a different style of play. The new offense will involve fewer plays, with fewer shifts and motions, but will still feature audibles.
