2014 NFL Free Agency: B.J. Raji signs one-year deal with Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have resigned defensive lineman B.J. Raji to a one year deal according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Raji found the market to be particularly cold for the 6-2, 334-pound lineman who will move back to nose tackle. The former first round pick out (ninth overall) of Boston College in the 2009 NFL draft had a career low 19 combined tackles last season and for the second year in a row did not record a quarterback sack.

Despite his declining tackle numbers, Raji has been a constant in the middle of the Packers defense having starting 62 of a possible 64 games since the 2010 season.

The Packers need to continue to address their defense, in particular their front after Nick Perry and Jerel Worthy have not produced much  considering their lofty draft status.
