Reaction: Packers, Raji close to reaching a new deal

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Packers and DE B.J. Raji, whose time in Green Bay has been assumed by many to be over, are close to reaching a new deal. The deal wouldn't be that big, as it would reportedly only be for 1 year and $4 million, but still, it's happening. I don't know why, but it is.

Anyway, if this whole thing does it get done Raji would end up making $500,000 less this season than he did last year, which, considering how bad he was, doesn't make much sense. I mean come on, he's not worth that much money. In my opinion, he doesn't deserve more than $1 million due to his lack of production.

If the Packers' salary cap was tight, then I'd agree with you, but they've got more room than they can actually spend in 2014. He wasn't worth $4 million based on his 2013 season, but he's played a lot better than that in the past. It's a low-risk move for them with some upside.
