Report: Packers Expected To Re-Sign DL B.J. Raji

Bill Huber of of PackerReport.com reports that the Packers are expected to re-sign free agent DT B.J. Raji.

The Packers are also reportedly interested in bringing back NT Letroy Guion, even though he had some recent issues that resulted in an arrest for felony possession of marijuana and a firearm.

With this in mind, it’s not all that surprising to hear that they could bring Raji back for another season, as he’s more than familiar with their defensive system and they could probably use the defensive line depth.

Raji, 28, was forced to sign a one-year contract worth $4 million after he found very limited interest on the open market last year.

Unfortunately for Raji, he sustained a torn right biceps shortly before the start of the season and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Despite being out for the year, Raji elected to hang around the team, which is something that impressed HC Mike McCarthy.

I’m glad he stayed here,” McCarthy said at the Scouting Combine. “I’m glad he stayed with us and was part of the family. I thought it was good having him around, it was good for the young guys. So, hope to get him back, too. Would be great to have him back.

If Green Bay does end up re-signing him in the coming weeks, it’s likely that Raji would accept another reasonable contract and hope to test the market again in 2016.
