A report in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel  says Rajis expected to decline the Packers’ offer.

"The Green Bay Packers have offered defensive lineman B.J. Raji a short-term deal to keep the unrestricted free agent on their team.Now they’re waiting to see if he takes it before free agency begins.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.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."
