Packers | B.J. Raji to move back to old position

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 14:58:04 -0700

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.

Packers | Looking to rebuild defense to suit philosophy of DC

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 18:57:54 -0800

The Green Bay Packers are committed to rebuilding its defense in a way that best suits the philosophy of defensive coordinator Dom Capers, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. That means getting more athletics and versatile along the defensive line. That might be bad news for DT B.J. Raji, who turned down $8 million to stay with the team last season. The team wants linemen that better resemble DT Datone Jones. Raji and DT Ryan Pickett, who are 330 pounds, might no longer fit what the club wants to do.

Tue, 30 Oct 2012 12:50:03 -0700

Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green will remain the team's starting running back over RB James Starks due to his breakaway speed.
