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.

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.

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...

Packers Free Agent Primer: BJ Raji

It seems like only yesterday. Everyone was sitting around wondering if B.J. Raji was the next great nose tackle in the rich history of the 3-4 defense. It was early in 2011, and Raji was coming off of a season where he recorded 6.5 sacks, and 51 pressures.
