Packers and B.J. Raji are close to completing a 1-year deal that will keep the DT in Green Bay and off the free-agent market, per sources.

As nearly every Packers fan knows, the Packers recently offered Raji a long-term deal which featured an $8 million per year salary, an offer which Raji rejected.
It will be interesting to see both what the money is on this one year deal and, more importantly, which B.J. Raji shows up. The former ninth overall pick has been a decent-sized disappointment since being selected out of Boston College, with 2013 being arguably his worst year as a pro.
UPDATE: Interestingly enough, shortly after this posted, two sources contacted me with essentially the same message. To quote one "Not so fast on Raji...."
Sounds like Schefter may have uncharacteristically jumped the gun here. Stay tuned.
