B.J. Raji Follows Up Column on Contract Offer with Poor Outing Against Giants

B.J. Raji Follows Up Column on Contract Offer with Poor Outing Against Giants

B.J. Raji received a lot of attention on Sunday morning when a column by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn alleged that the Packers defensive lineman spurned an offer of a contract extension by the organization averaging $8 million per season.

The consensus among NFL insiders interviewed for the column and reaction from readers seems to be feelings of disbelief that Raji would pass up such an offer.

In an league that has seen few blockbuster deals signed in free agency during an era of a flat salary cap, the proposition presented to Raji appears to be very generous, perhaps one he won't find on the open market.

Reactions of incredulity have only intensified in the aftermath of the Packers' 27-13 loss on Sunday to the New York Giants, a game in which Raji did little to help the team's overall poor defensive effort.

Raji graded out the lowest of any defensive player in the Packers' most-recent loss, according to ProFootballFocus.com, not being credited with as much as a single tackle in 44 snaps.

This season, Raji ranks 38th among all NFL ends who play in a 3-4 defensive system and participate in at least 25 percent of their team's snaps, an incredibly low ranking made even worse by the high expectations among the public placed upon a former first round draft pick.

The last time Raji recorded a sack was in Week 12 of the 2011 season.

Raji has to look no further than the situation that played out this past offseason with former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings for an offer of $8 million per season that was later rescinded.

Whether or not the Packers are leaving their offer on the table to Raji is unknown, but there's little evidence that points to Raji playing at a level that commands that dollar amount.

Among the few aces up Raji's sleeve is that the Packers have four defensive linemen whose contracts expire following the 2013 season, including all of the best run stuffers on the team in Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly and C.J. Wilson.

There's also a feeling among NFL observers that Raji would perhaps fit better in a penetrating 4-3 system as opposed to the 3-4 block-eating scheme of defensive coordinator Dom Capers, and maybe there's a team out there that would take a chance on Raji in free agency.

There's only so much money to go around in Green Bay, however, especially in light of the mega-deals signed by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and linebacker Clay Matthews in the summer of 2013.

Cornerback Sam Shields, center Evan Dietrich-Smith and wide receiver James Jones are all scheduled to be free agents at season's end, and there's a risk each of them is taking if they don't accept any offer made by the Packers organization.

It's possible that Raji, Shields, Dietrich-Smith and Jones are playing a game of musical chairs, and when the music stops, there may not be enough money to go around to pay all of them.

Will the Packers renege on their offer to Raji?

Will Raji accept the offer or take the mystery prize behind Door No. 2?

Stay tuned for the conclusion of "Let's Make a Deal."

Apparently Raji's agents don't read Pro Football Focus or look at his stats. His worth is more like meat, $10/lb.

Evan's picture

$8 mil a year is really stretching it for him, I'd say.

Already making $4.5 with a cap hit of $6.5...I'd say that's already more than fair.

Justin's picture

Raji is a solid player, but you can't pay him 8 million per year.

Longshanks's picture

Perhaps Raji feels it's too much that's why he's not signing it. Maybe he's embarrassed at such a generous offer and is negotiating behind the scenes to reduce it to something that he's more comfortable with and one that helps the team sign a few others.

Idiot Fan's picture

I do think that the PFF stats work better for some players/positions than others. Raji's role in the defense is not necessarily to penetrate or even make tackles. He eats up blockers and frees up the ILBs. PFF doesn't have a stat for that. I would be curious to know how the defensive staff feels about how Raji is doing in terms of what they are asking him to do. The fact that there is an $8 million offer suggests that they think he's doing well.

McGinn's article gave me the impression that Raji would rather play in a system where he gets to rush and penetrate and get some stats. I wonder if he hasn't accepted it because he's hoping to go somewhere and play a different role.

Stroh's picture

I would say the 8M offer tells you how much the defensive staff, coaches and FO feel about Raji doesn't it? Thompson would surely be talking to the coaches to get their input on valuable he is to the team.

Evan's picture

With Pickett also expiring (though I do expect him to be back for another year or two), I wonder if a shift back to NT for Raji might be in his future.

Derek in CO's picture

I'm really gonna miss Ryan Pickett when he's gone. Hopefully we get a few more years out of Jolly.

Evan's picture

Oh, yeah, I don't think Jolly is going anywhere.

calabasa's picture

Today, on WHO'S FAULT IS IT ANYWAY?!?!

Is it Raji who's not eating up enough blockers for Brad Jones to make an impact? Or is it Jones who sucks?

Is it Capers' scheme, or the players?

Is it TT's drafting, or MM's game plans?

I'm not smart enough to figure out what's wrong with the Packers.

jeremy's picture

Jones got a huge sack against the Giants. Who are you arguing with?

themasterfake's picture

So if Raji was in a 4-3 he'd be a sack machine...well, on third and longs...the 3-4 is out the window and it's whomever can get to the QB and Raji ain't getting there.

jeremy's picture

I'm not sure what that has to do with what I said.

zub's picture

Raji and others will be salary cap victims, what Raji has going for him is his youth

denniseckersley's picture

All things equal, having known we lost....it's comforting to know that shields (absence) and Raji (mediocrity) maybe have become a smidgen more affordable

Walty's picture

So then let him walk. Use the money to sign Shields. He's more valuable than Raji at this point.

TT will have to figure something out, however, if both Pickett and Raji (our two biggest boys) are gone next year.

jeremy's picture

Pickett isn't going anywhere. He's a family man and has plenty of money. TT will pay him fairly for a few more years and he won't want to pull his kids out of school.

Mojo's picture

$8 mil/year(I'm assuming for 3 or 4 years) seems like a generous offer to me. I don't think he'll get anything better.

I do understand if he wants to play in a 4-3 though. Playing nose tackle in a 3-4 has to be one of the most thankless jobs(outside of the pay the pros get)in all of sports. And maybe outside of sports too.

Just think, you get to go against double-teams all day. You can make a great move to get by the first man, but then there's the second-guy to clean up while he sticks his hands into your throat. Even if you get by both of them the QB throws the ball away before you get there. And watch out for that lineman throwing the cut block while you're not looking or engaged with someone else(sure it might be illegal, but wtf). Also, make sure you shed any blockers and square up on the 250lb RB coming at you at full speed trying to get through the hole.

Outside of the cash, I can't see anyone volunteering for this type of job. Of course who you could say this about catching in MLB.

Bibbon Hazel's picture

Whats new???? He had his best game of the season last week! Did we expect anything other than a steaming turd of a performance this week! Learn from history! Dude can't string together good games, never has, never will. He is the model of inconsistency! Glad he didn't take the offer and hope he isn't given a new one, lord knows how many turds he will produce for games once he gets paid!!

Derek in CO's picture

That's fantastic.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

He can walk. There are other mediocre fat guys that will do next to nothing for far less.

RunAndHyde's picture

Hahaha fattys ...

Ranch Tooth's picture

If it's just a matter of having a run-stuffer in the middle, I'm pretty sure TT can find one for a lot less than 8 mil per.

PackRat's picture

I hate to say it Mr. Thompson, but the Packers defense is soft. Still.

None of our linebackers play downhill. How many times do we see a RB, TE or WR over the middle gentley wrestled to the ground.

Our DL also has a contain mentality, save for the two times a game Daniels blows into the backfield. RB are caressed by our LBs for losses. The Giants, THE GIANTS for G-dsake, blew us off the ball whenever they needed to open a hole. Our rotation does not seem to have a strength.

Our DBs/cover guys "tip" balls away. But there is no one that an opposing WR has to fight off the line of scrimmage. Tramon shows up a few times a year and Shields has made tremendous progress as in his deficiency again the run but neither is danger of having to be fitted for a Hula skirt.

The mentality is to choose system over raw talent, smart over physical. I get it. But it keeps us with a bend not break defense whose shortcomings are open for all to see when AR12 is out, when the opponent doesn't drop wide open passes and stall their own drives or, when the opponent IS physical.

Derek in CO's picture

Lattimore plays downhill, but since Brad Jones is sooooooo much better, he won't play, right MM?

PackRat's picture

I also have to admit that I also believed that Morgan Burnett was a missing ingredient.

He is fast becoming a leading contender for the weekly Charlie Peprah/Jarett Bush award, given each game to the Packer DB the opposing QB quickly locates on the field to know who to deliver the ball to... whoever he is covering.

FITZCORE 1252'S EVO's picture

Morgan has been a big let down IMO, definition of J.A.G.

Point Packer's picture

In the case of Morgan Burnett you can just throw it right to him, as he'll promptly respond by softly lobbing it into your receivers hands.

PackRat's picture

Mea culpa, I meant no one except CMIII!

UP-Packer's picture

The story of Raji could very well be a simple one. He just doesn't want to play in Green Bay any longer. There are quite a few ex-Packers floating around the NFL.

Raji seems like the type of player that needs extra attention to thrive on the field. Doubt Capers and/or Mac can provide constant motivation for him. (Evidently, skeet shooting & bowling at TC just doesn't do it for BJ)

Hahaha WR first round? No. Safety 1st round. And get rid of JJ?Ummmm no.....

themasterfake's picture

it's line first round ..agree not to draft guys who couldn't be cornerbacks so they become safeties in the high rounds... similar to TT not drafting guards but tackles... 2014....geesh, pitchers and catchers haven't even reported yet

lennysmalls's picture

Ted Thompson is too stubborn a GM, and his draft and hold strategy is slowly becoming a draft and fold outcome. The players he's selected on defense in particular and first round offensive line picks are soft and haven't been able to play entire seasons for many years in a row (Matthews, Sherrod, Bulaga, Burnett, etc.). John Dorsey, the Packers head scout last season was plucked away by the Chiefs and they're having a hell of a year, going from worst to first. He brings in Abdullah, Avery, Demps at SAFETY, DeVito, Fasano, Jordan, McGrath, Parker, Schwartz, Alex Smith, Sean Smith -- all of whom are on the active roster and having a productive season (I didn't include in the list Dezman Moses and Frank Zombo who may in fact be busts but whatever they were Packers). Perhaps Dorsey is doing something he knew he could never do or suggest under Thompson in Green Bay?

It is absolutely baffling to me, and quite frankly the epitome of arrogance, that a GM doesn't use all the tools in the tool box to build a team. Year in and year out, the Packers are one of the youngest teams in the league, and one of the most insular rosters as well. They caught lightening in a bottle in 2010 and most of 2011, but it was indeed a fart in the wind. Woodson and Collins are long gone. Wake up. This system needs an absolute reboot.

Evan's picture

It is kind of interesting how all of TT's disciples are so much more active in free agency/the trade market. Maybe because they inherited depleted rosters that necessitated it? Who knows.

WKUPackFan's picture

Evan hit the nail on the head. For all their supposed pro bowlers, KC did not have good roster. They picked up multiple players after the cut to 53. Also consider the fact they are playing a 2-14 schedule. Despite KC's record, they have been exposed over the past few weeks as being unable to score.

Ask these questions about the KC acquisitions listed above. How many would you want on GB's roster? Which Packer players would you replace with the chosen KC players? How many of the listed players were FA opposed to UFAs? A list of guys on a team playing a soft schedule looks good until you dig a little deeper

Morgan Mundane's picture

Teds problem is he has no money in his safe to pay for free agents. Fans better get dam used to less than stellar play and lots of injures in the years to come as Ted tries to sell his 'development' program over picking up instant talent.
Rogers are Mathews are eating up 66% of the money. Since Ted will not back fill contracts that all the other GM's are doing, his pay as you go schemed means he has 44% of his money to spend on others. Those others must be late round picks.

Stroh's picture

Apparently you missed what Thompson did when he first arrived in GB! Or did you sleep thru the signings of Woodson, Pickett and a few other less heralded FA signings!

It is absolutely baffling to me, and quite frankly the epitome of stupidity that you don't realize that the scouts that left GB after serving under Thomspon are following exactly the script Thompson used when he took over in GB! He signed impact players at positions of great need to make the Packers competitive immediately. How much you wanna bet the Schnieder in Sea, Dorsey in KC and McKenzie in Oak, all follow similar scripts for building their respective teams?!

Just utter mind boggling to me that you can't see it!!! Try again LennySmells...

Evan's picture

True. But even after Seattle became a contender last year Schneider went and traded for Harvin and splurged on DL in free agency. Very un-TT like. It does make me wonder how many of TT's subordinates buy in fully to his philosophy.

That said, Seattle is going to face a big salary crunch in the next year or two. Lot of defensive talent coming up and Wilson will likely want to renegotiate after next year. Should be interesting.

Stroh's picture

Yeah, cuz he needed a playmaker at WR didn't he. So he still went and got a huge need. He wasn't able to take care of that issue the previous year. So he did it the next year. How's Harvin working out BTW? How many TD's does he have? How long b4 he smokes another bowl and gets suspended for a year.

Thompson got the Packers to the NFC Champ game in what? His 2nd or 3rd season at the helm. Is Schnieder going to match that? Possibly, but certainly not a guarantee either.

Thompson also has had to pay a Franchise QB every year in GB, while Sea is still paying Wilson on his rookie deal. Those extra dollars make it a lot easier to sign FA.

Evan's picture

Dude, take a deep breath. Not everything is a pissing competition. Just trying to have a conversation. I'm as big a TT fan as there is.

calabasa's picture

Put the Woodson and Pickett examples to bed. That was 7 years ago.

Stroh's picture

Its still is the same script Schneider and Dorsey are using isn't it? So Thompson used FA to get impact players at major need positions very early in his tenure, to become competitiv just as Schneider and Dorsey have done. Its still perfectly relevant even if you don't want to think so.

It may have been 7 yrs ago, but its still the same script. We'll see how Seattle and KC do in the future, but neither of them are paying a Franchise QB either yet. Thompson's been paying a franchise type QB deal every year in GB.

Maybe you don't want to acknowledge it but lets watch the next few years.

lennysmalls's picture

Easy, Slow, calm down and take your meds. Most of the starters on KC aren't 2012 or 2013 draft picks. KC is a playoff team this year. The Packers aren't, and that's who they are without their HOF QB. They may have struggled to get into the playoffs this year even if Rodgers was healthy. I haven't researched Seattle yet or the debacle that is the Oakland Raiders, so I can't comment on them, but now you've piqued my interest. Good day to you sir.

Stroh's picture

Struggled to get in the playoffs w/ Rodgers? They would be 8-2 right now and looking to clinch the division on Thanksgiving by beating the kittens. Not too mention, working towards a 1st rd bye!

Morgan Mundane's picture

What a wonderful opportunity for Ted to let this guy go since he isn't stopping the run or getting to the QB anymore. Time for someone in the inside who is tall to block passes and has a quick first step. Fatso can take Pickett with him.

another packer who signs with vikes and bad mouths the pack

The TKstinator's picture

Raji is inconsistent.
Sometimes when a player gets "paid", he responds with less....motivation.
Could add up to a bad situation.

On the other hand, I don't coach him in practice or grade film. Is he the kind of guy who will get lazy when the $ rolls in? I don't know. But the guys making these decisions do. Or at least have a pretty good idea what to expect.

Evan's picture

He was the 5th overall pick. I'd say the money has been rolling in for a while now.

The TKstinator's picture

I know what you mean but I'm sure his rookie deal $ would pale in comparison to what his next deal would be. So many times we hear about "contract years" serving as such huge motivators. What about when the next big $ is signed? Some guys go in the tank. BJ? I don't know.

And PS: wasn't he the 9th overall pick? Every slot counts, baby!!

RunAndHyde's picture

Thats what she said...

The TKstinator's picture

Yowza!!

Stroh's picture

Raji signed a 5yr/28.5M rookie deal. His new contract will be larger, but his rookie deal won't pale in comparison. Even if he signs a 4yr 32M deal. Its less but it doesn't pale in comparison.

And your right he was the 9th pick overall. Just think we could have had Micheal Crabtree instead?!! LOL

I hope Raji comes to his senses and signs the contract. His ability to collapse the pocket and take on multiple blockers would be dearly missed. Packers are going to need him.

The TKstinator's picture

Good info, thanks! I had no idea the $ is/would be/will be so comparable. GB will offer him what they consider a fair deal and if he decides he wants more, it'll be adios GB. I don't see GB getting into a bidding war. Has TT EVER done that with ANY player? Not to my knowledge.

Stroh's picture

No Thompson won't get into a bidding war. My guess is the offer stands as is, as it has since the season started. Thompson gave Raji what is considered a very fair, slightly generous offer. He won't budge from it just to keep one of "his own". Not unlike he did w/ Jennings...

KennyPayne's picture

Well Hawk never came close to earning his huge contract, Brad Jones got a huge new deal without earning it, and Burnett is well on his way to being the most overpaid safety in the NFL, so why wouldn't TT shower another one of his stellar draft picks with a bloated contract?

If you keep overpaying your own players you have a ready made excuse for never participating in veteran free agency.

The TKstinator's picture

I would agree those deals seem very generous, but methinks they reflect how GB values each player, not how WE value each player.

Stroh's picture

Exactly... Fans think they know how player should be paid. For the most part they DON'T. Either way the only thing that matters is how the Packers value the players and how the league would value them on the open market!

The TKstinator's picture

Same page, amigo.

KennyPayne's picture

Problem is, if the Pack is overvaluing (and overpaying) some players then there is less money for other players.

There seems to be a theme in GB that if TT drafted (or discovered) the player he will get paid handsomely whether they deserve it or not. Hawk, B Jones, Crosby, Kuhn, Burnett, Tramon, are but 6 examples of this phenomenon.

At some point complacency took over for accountability.

RunAndHyde's picture

Morgan will do better next year w Clinton-Dix by his side....book it.

The TKstinator's picture

Can't wait to see where C-D lands in the NFL. And how he does.

Next draft several 6'5 black QB's who can both run and pass effectively aka Cam Newton's will be entering the league. The three piggies: Raji, Pickett, Jolly will not be able to get it done against any of these people.
Ted better wise up and realize its going to take svelt, quick of foot defensive linemen to contain these guys.

Stroh's picture

You didn't notice them drafting Perry, Neal, Worthy and Datone Jones the past 4 yrs did you?

Albert Lingerfeld's picture

I pray Raji turns it down and leaves.

SOMEBODY WAKE TO FUCK UP! TED THOMPSON HAS ASSEMBLED A 1-15 maybe 2-14 TEAM that will win 10 games or more each year because he got a winning lottery ticket named AARON RODGERS,not because of his all knowing powers and impecable talent evaluation skills!!!! the man refuses to use all avenues available to him in order to try to maximize our chances of winning world championships,in exchange for all the accolades showered down on him by the NATIONAL MEDIA for using the draft and develop ONLY!!!rather than filling the glaring gaps on the roster with moderate priced free agents who have been battle tested instead of the FUCKING MD JENNINGS of the world, who have absolutely no buisness on a NFL field period!!! I for one,am glad that this has been exposed in ARODS absence!!AT SOME POINT AFTER OUR SUPERBOWL VICTORY.THOMPSON DECIDED THAT HE WAS BETTER AT EVALUATING TALENT THAN THE OTHER EXECS IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE,AND DIDNT HAVE TO EXPLORE OTHER AVENUES IF HE MISSED ON A FEW PICKS OR CAREER ENDIG INJURIES MIGHT OCCUR.AND THE ANSWER IS THIS.....NO MR. THOMPSON,YOU ARE NOT SO GOOD AT YOUR JOB THAT YOU CAN COVER YOUR ASS WITH THE NATE FKN PALMERS AND ERIK WALDENS AND MD JENNINGS AND DON BARCLAYS AND TOM CRABTREES AND SO ON AND SO ON OF THE WORLD!!! YOU HAD A ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE TO WIN MULTIPLE SUPERBOWLS WITH A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS BUT INSTEAD YOU HAVE GATHERED A TEAM MUCH LIKE OUR 1970s and 80s PACKERS THAT SO MANY OF US SUFFERED THROUGH,a couple really good players,a few decent players and a whole lot of players that are just plain sorry,AND AS MUCH PRAISE AS I AND PACKER NATION HAVE RAINED DOWN ON YOU,I FOR ONE AM CALLING YOU OUT,NOW THAT YOU HAVE REFUSED TO EXPLORE THE MODERATE FREE AGENCY AND TRADE AVENUE FOR SIX YEARS AND COMPLETELY GOFF AT THE IDEA!!!! AT LEAST FOR THE FANS SAKE AND ARODS SAKE,TAKE A SWING AND A MISS AND LOSE THAT FKN EGO!!! WEVE HAD ENOUGH,2-14 TALENT MEANS YOUVE MISJUDGED YOUR ABILITIES!!!!

Longshanks's picture

Hump really? Did you ever run a business or take a college Economics course? I am guessing you didn't.

How dare you attack Teddy Tee like this!! You have alot of fucking nerve!!

ANY fucking elite qb that goes down and you will see those teams absolutely tank!! It's just the way it is. Be glad that Teddy Tee had the fucking balls to draft Aaron Rodgers and you had 20 years of hall of fame qb's in a row. Three games in 20 fucking years you have a non hall of fame qb and you want to whine and complain about the greatest G.M. in Packers history? You sir are either drunk or a moron.

YEAH! I OWN THE BADGER FKN SPORTS BAR MONDOVI WIS!! AND IF MY BARTENDER SUCKS,,I ADMIT I MADE A MISTAKE,I DONT FKN SUGARCOAT IT BY SAYIN SHE CAN MAKE A GOOD MARTINI IF SHE CANT!! JUST LIKE YOU CANT SAY MD JENNINGS WONT BLOW COVERAGES OR RUN AT A 45 degree ANGLE AWAY FROM FKN CONTACT WHEN HE DOES!!! YOU GUYS HAVE TO GET OFF THIS BULLSHIT ABOUT THE SALARY CAP!!! many seasoned vets will come in and contribute at a mil a yr,so why try making a wasted 7th rd pick like nate palmer become a fixture on your team for a half mil!!! the guy is not good enough to play pro ball,just like jennings wasnt and never will be!!!or jarrett bush for that matter,special teams aside.and yet you offer bj raji 8 mil a yr,when there are 4 ryan picketts out there for 2 mil a yr!! THATS CALLED FKN ECONOMICS!!! or CAP MANAGEMENT!!! HAVE FUN WATCHING THE PACKERS LOSE TO THE WORST TEAM IN FOOTBALL AT OUR OWN LAMBEAU FIELD SUNDAY!! P.S. THE BEARS ARE TERRIBLE AND THEY STILL BEAT THE SUPERBOWL CHAMPS WITH A HALF ASSED BACKUP QB!!!!!!!!

Longshanks's picture

Hump, so let me understand this. You want Ted Thompson to sign 4 Ryan Pickett like players in free agency over signing his own? I'm trying to understand. Ryan Picket makes 5 million a year so if you paid for 4 guys like him that would be 20 million dollars. That would be expensive and as a result probably has to let go of Sam Shields, Raji, James Jones and others.

I understand your angry at the three game losing streak Hump and I am just busting your balls a little about it.

You should know by now that Ted Thompson is a draft and develop guy. Nothing you say is going to change that. He does this because it's working for him and we have been successful year after year. I like it and you obviously don't and want him to be more like Ron Wolf. I enjoy watching a good team year after year and Teddy Tee to me is a God and I will never EVER dog him like you and others do. I've been thru the 70's and 80's. We are getting a little taste now of that. This is why I am thankful we have Ted Thompson and not Tom Braatz or Judge Parins running the show. This is just temporary.
