    That was actually mentioned in another tweet by Rapoport:

    As I've said before I'd love to hear where Rapoport is getting his information because he sure seems to be reporting alot of news coming out of 1265.

    Well, if MM was honest about not wanting to go on with a smaller DL he was already wrong once over the last few days.

    Very much a reason why I don't like the guy. He will report anything under the sun

    Sure, when you report anything and everything you're bound to be right sometimes. It's alot like Fanasy Football "Gurus" who gloat about winning 10 leagues in any given year. When you play in 100, winning 10 isn't a great %. I'm more of a Glazer guy. He reports things that are 100% accurate doesn't report much but is always right and has his facts straight.

    Totally agree that Glazer is one of the best in the business.

    we need to keep pickett, as long as he can play. He is an anchor. Good by run defense with no big bodies or experience. we might just set a new record for yards given up on the ground and through the air if we cant fix the secondary as well.

    Let Pickett go, re-sign Raji, draft a NT, and let him and J Boyd compete for play time next to Raji.. If Raji doesn't re-sign, let Pickett go, draft a NT and develop him along with J Boyd.. Either way, draft a NT..

    If they resign Raji he doesn't deserve $8M per yr

    I think a great draft for us would be to draft a S, LB, NT, TE, WR, LB, and a DL.. Not in that order.. And to put us over the top, another S..

    Who anchored our D-line in our SB winning season in 2010..? He's been underpayed long enough. $8mil is deserving. Give the man his money and watch him go back to work!!

    He's not 3 down player as they rest him regularly. Packers offered him $8M either before or during the season & he turned it down. He's dreaming if he thinks he's getting more than $8M per yr

    You don´t pay a guy for what he did three years ago. He has been a major disappoinment over the last two seasons and wouldn´t even show up in a contract year. Let him walk!!!

    In that case we could also bring back Woodson for 10m/year since you know he was the league DPOY in 2009.

    He has the same agent as Rodgers and Matthews, I believe. As reasonable as he was with those two I am surprised he would give such blatantly foolish advice to Raji as to turn down $20M guaranteed. (Matthews got about $30M).

    http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5210/bj-raji

    "He has zero sacks over his last 39 games (including playoffs), has zero forced fumbles in his five-year career and graded out dead last against the run among 3-4 ends in PFF's 2013 grades."


    This after grading out dead last against the run among 3-4 NT's in 2011.

    I have to ask, why does anyone think BJ Raji is good? Or even average?

    Why would you expect Raji to play better than he did this season after cashing in? Doesn't his lack of motivation/production in a contract year concern you?
    And nfl.com credits him with 12 solo tackles in 16 regular season games this year.

    But Tom Oates agrees with you and thinks the Packers should re-sign Raji:
    http://host.madison.com/sports/foot...cle_c9fa88b7-96b6-5bb0-813a-1598b1585339.html

    But even Oates recognizes the kind of year Raji had (I bolded that comment) and doesn't think he's worth $8M/yr. For those like Oates who argue Raji’s job was to take up blockers I’ll post again that Raji played himself off of the 2 DL sub packages that allow the DL to rush the passer. And again, I’m sure he was not prohibited from beating a double team and making a play.

    It's hard for me to imagine a scenario that Raji is back.

    1) I think we can most agree that he's going to get significantly less than the $8M a year that we previously offered him, regardless of where he signs.

    2) Given that, when it's all said and done he'll probably want to go somewhere where he expects to be more active in the system, even though I very much doubt that our defensive system has been holding Raji back the last few years, rather than his own shortcomings.

    I would guess he'll end up with something like 2 years/$10M as a 4-3 DT elsewhere, and hope to have a productive 2 years and cash in at age 29. My guess is he won't. We gave him his best shot at a major NFL payday and that ship has sailed.
