B.J. Raji is expected to turn down the Packers one year deal
The Green Bay Packers have offered defensive lineman B.J. Raji a short-term deal to keep the unrestricted free agent on their team.
The Packers offered Raji the options of one- and two-year contracts, a source told the Journal Sentinel. For one year, their offer was for about $4 million. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday that Raji was close to a one-year deal, but today the Journal Sentinel is stating the deal is not imminent and there are indications Raji isn’t interested in the Packers’ offer.
Raji would only want to sign a one-year deal if he thought the long-term offers he received weren’t lucrative enough and there was still time left to shop himself when the NFL free agency signing period begins at 3 p.m. Tuesday. At what point the Packers would move forward without him only general manager Ted Thompson can say.
