Packers' Raji ready to contribute after missing last season

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Veteran nose tackle B.J. Raji knows well the challenging path that injured Green Bay Packers teammate Jordy Nelson must take the next several months. ''Like anything else in life, you have to acknowledge it, accept it and then move forward,'' Raji said Thursday. ''So the sooner you can acknowledge and accept it and just accept the situation, the better off you...

Green Bay Packers Counting on B.J. Raji

B.J. Raji has been one of the biggest enigmas for the Green Bay Packers since he was drafted by the team in 2009. He was drafted by them No.9 overall to anchor Dom Capers’ new 3-4 defense. The Packers at the time really had nobody capable of playing nose tackle for the long run, so it was as big a need as you can get. Raji hasn’t exactly been a bust, but at the same time he has...

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...

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...
