Packers re-sign DT Raji

Posted Mar 14, 2014

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed DT B.J. Raji. The signing was announced Friday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Raji has played in 76 games with 63 starts and has registered 227 tackles (119 solo), 10½ sacks and seven passes defensed during his five seasons with the Packers. The first of two first-round picks by Green Bay in 2009 (No. 9 overall selection), he started all 16 games for the club in 2013.

Including playoffs, Raji has appeared in 70 games since 2010, which is tied for No. 2 in the NFL among defensive linemen over that span. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2011, becoming the first Green Bay defensive tackle to be selected to the all-star game since Bob Brown in 1972.
