Report: Packers closing in on deal with Raji

Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji is expected to sign a one-year contract to remain with the team, according to ESPN.

Raji declined an $8 million per year offer last season.

Last season, he had no sacks and played 59 percent of the snaps while finishing with a career-low 17 tackles.

The former first-round draft pick from Boston College recorded 6.5 sacks and had an interception in the NFC championship game that he returned for a touchdown.
