Green Bay Packers DT B.J. Raji will be allowed to move back to his natural position, nose tackle, this year. The decision to move him back to nose tackle was likely the reason that Raji decided to re-sign. "When we went playing a balanced front, (we would) play Raji in the middle and Pickett out at the end. Tilted nose is a little to one side or the other (of the center). That's a technique you have to work on to be able to deal with both the guard's and the center's blocks," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.
