Playing Defense Like It’s 2010

In 2006, Prince partied like it’s 1999. In 2015, the Packers are playing defense like it’s 2010. It’s still very early, and Dom Capers’ guys have hardly gone up against a murderer’s row of QBs, but it’s hard not to be encouraged about what’s happening on that side of the ball. Sunday’s 17-3 victory over San Francisco may have been the defense’s finest performance...

Packers Decision-Time Nearing on B.J. Raji

The Green Bay Packers had a dilemma coming off the 2013 season. Their starting defensive end recorded only 17 combined tackles in a 16 game season with zero explosive plays. He had become a place-holder rather than a play-maker. What does that translate to in terms of a new contract, if anything? If you were the Green Bay Packers would you consider that player’s body of work over...

B.J. Raji out for season with torn biceps muscle

B.J. Raji’s 2014 season is over before it started. The Green Bay Packers nose tackle played just the first two series in Friday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders before sitting out the rest of the game with an apparent bicep injury. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that he believed the injury wasn’t too serious, but reported Saturday that Raji...

Shots fired: Green Bay Packers DT B.J. Raji named top-10 overrated player in NFL

Yesterday, the fine folks at Grantland released the second half of their annual NFL trade value list, which ranks each player in the league based on how much interest they would garner on the open market. It’s an interesting list, one that is fun to compare with a similar piece cover32 posted earlier in the offseason. While there were plenty of similarities between the two...

Cory’s Corner: Packers’ 2014 D begins and ends with Ragi

With the signing of Julius Peppers, B.J. Raji could have a snice year. I gave B.J. Raji a lot of grief last year. After setting career lows in total tackles (12) and tallying no sacks for the second straight season, it was completely warranted. Raji’s argument was that he barely played his true position as a bona fide nose tackle. He dabbled in playing end and also spent time as...

Green Bay Packers: Why B.J. Raji Will Return to Form in 2014

The biggest thing the Green Bay Packers defense has been lacking over the past three seasons is difference makers. Every great defense in the NFL has them and they are essential to a dominant defense. Unfortunately, the Packers have been lacking these kinds of players recently and if their defense is going to improve in 2014, they need more of them to come to the forefront.  Defensive...

Green Bay Packers re-sign DT BJ Raji

BJ Raji reportedly turned down a 5-year, 40 million dollar extension from the Packers before last season. If that’s true, he has to be kicking himself hard. This 1-year, 4 million dollar deal is a steep fall from that. The Packers originally offered Raji this 1-year, 4 million dollar deal before the start of the off-season, but he turned it down in favor of hitting the open market...

Yet another re-signing for the Green Bay Packers, Raji will remain

B.J. Raji has reached an agreement with the Green Bay Packers. The deal is a one-year contract worth $4 million. Raji played all 16 games for the Packers last season and despite his drop in production during the past year, he is still an integral piece of the Packers defense. The Packers drafted Raji with the ninth pick and it was clear that they weren’t going to let him leave...

Green Bay Packers: Upcoming free agents

B.J Raji and Ryan Pickett are among the upcoming free agents for the Packers The Green Bay Packers are in a peculiar situation.  They enter this offseason with around $27 million in cap space.  That large number gives the Packers plenty of options of how they can spend their large amount of money.  General manager Ted Thompson could choose to go a different route than in year’s...
