Packers’ defensive coaches excited with return of NT B.J. Raji

Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been praising nose tackle B.J. Raji and how he has bounced back from a ruptured right biceps that ended his 2014 season. Raji started a new training program including practicing yoga to help his body be at its optimum once training camp starts. “I felt last year he was having a good camp,” said defensive coordinator Dom Capers, via...

This sleeping giant will emerge for the Packers in 2015

Five years ago, B.J. Raji was the cornerstone of a Green Bay Packers defense that won the Super Bowl. That season, his presence at nose tackle was imposing. His success in the spotlight led to stardom, and the former ninth-overall selection was considered among the best interior D-linemen in pro football. Since then, however, Raji has gone into hibernation. The Packers need the old...

Green Bay Packers: Can B.J. Raji bounce back in 2015?

With any NFL player, it can be expected that they will once in a while have a down year.  Aaron Rodgers hasn’t always been the best quarterback in the league, as can said the same with Adrian Peterson.  A player’s numbers might also be down because their season was cut short due to an untimely injury.  For Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji, his last two seasons...

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...
