Lions' Frank Ragnow says there's "definitely a pressure that comes with" becoming the NFL's highest-paid center. "I think one thing that has gotten me here today is just my pride. The pride with the name.," he said. "There's a lot of outside sources that can put pressure on you, but I don't think it's ever gonna be more than the pressure I put on myself."
