Packers Officially Re-Sign DT B.J. Raji To A One-Year, $3.5M Deal


The Green Bay Packers officially announced the signing of DT B.J. Raji on Tuesday.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers are expected re-sign veteran DT B.J. Raji to a one-year contract.

  • Rapoport adds that Raji’s deal is worth roughly $3.5 million and can be worth as much as $4 million.

The Packers have reportedly re-signed NT Letroy Guion to a one-year deal, but indications have been that they would like to have both players back next year.

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.

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.

We had  Raji listed as the No. 93 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
