The Detroit Lions are keeping their continuity snapping the ball in 2014.

The team, which brought back center Dominic Raiola last month, re-signed veteran long snapper Don Muhlbach to a one-year contract. The deal was announced Thursday.

The base salary on the deal is $955,000, according to NFLPA records. The Detroit Free Press is reporting Muhlbach is also receiving a $65,000 signing bonus. He received the same bonuses in 2012 and 2013.

The 32-year-old from Texas A&M has played in 148 games for Detroit since going undrafted in 2004 -- almost primarily as the team's long snapper.

Muhlbach was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012.

To understand a little bit more about what Muhlbach actually does, here's a look from last season at the Detroit Lions punting operation.
