B.J. RAJI RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cory’s Corner: Anyone want to play nose tackle for the Packers?

As soon as B.J. Raji was lost for the season this past August, my mind started to race. I wondered if general manager Ted Thompson would pick up the phone and call Ryan Pickett. After all, the 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle played eight seasons for the Packers. He started all 16 games in 2012 and 2013. I also wondered if Thompson would kick the tires on Johnny Jolly. He received...

Packers' Raji to need 6-9 months after surgery on biceps

  Defensive lineman B.J. Raji will need six to nine months to return from right biceps surgery, though it's unclear if he'll be back with the Green Bay Packers. Raji said Thursday he had surgery recently to reattach a tendon following the injury last month during a preseason game. It knocked Raji out for the 2014 season. Raji had signed a one-year deal in the offseason to...

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...
