Packers defensive tackle BJ Raji hopes technique will help him more than weight

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji has dropped quite a bit of weight. The former Boston College run stopper is down to the lowest weight of his career.

“I swear to God,” Raji told the Journal Sentinel. “I’m 327. Haven’t been this low since college.”

Raji is only 29 years old and he still has many years remaining on his body, and it sounds like he is happy that he has lost so much weight. Raji is hoping to use good technique rather than weight to continue his career as a nose guard. 

“To me, it’s more about technique in the middle,” he said. “Every nose isn’t humongous. There are small guys that play with good technique.”
