Packers Raji wants to remain with team when his contract ends

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, longtime Packers defender B.J. Raji wants to remain with the team when his current contract ends. Here is his statement:

"Green Bay gave me my first opportunity, my first shot at this thing," Raji said. "Obviously I've had a great run here. I love the people here. It's a great organization, it's a great city for football. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

The good news for him: the Packers and their fans probably want him back too. For his age, he's a very productive player. I see no reason why the Pack won't bring him back.

After the Super Bowl, I was afraid Raji would eventually become a very expensive player, but his production has dropped over the last couple seasons (not all his fault; he hasn't had much help from his fellow lineman) and he shouldn't be too expensive. The defensive line would be a mess without him, so I can't imagine the Packers aren't planning on extending his contract.
