“Mutual Interest” Between Packers & B.J. Raji In New Contract

Rob Demovksy spoke with Brian Murphy, the agent for Packers DT B.J. Raji, who said that he met with the team at the Combine and there’s “mutual interest” in getting a contract extension done.

However, Murphy, said that no deal is considered imminent at this point in time.

B.J. likes everyone in Green Bay, and everyone there likes him,” Murphy said Thursday. “Usually when that happens, you have a chance to get something done.

Murphy added that Raji would like to spend his entire career in Green Bay and later take a position in their front office.

“B.J.’s a guy who’d love to spend his entire career with the same organization and then eventually go to work in their front office,” Murphy said.

The Packers re-signed DT Letroy Guion a three-year, $11.25 million contract a few weeks ago, so there was some speculation that this could be an indication that Green Bay was prepared to move on from Raji.

Raji, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2009. He will be an unrestricted free agent for the third straight year in the next month.

In 2015, Raji appeared in 15 games for the Packers and recorded 22 tackles, a half sack and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 53 defensive tackle out of 70 qualifying players.
