Insight: Raji will earn $4 million next season. A Pro Bowler in 2011, Raji was ineffective last season (just 17 tackles in 16 games). Hopefully returning to his old position at nose tackle will help Raji get back on track.

Description: We've heard conflicting reports about free agent nose tackle B.J. Raji. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday that Raji was close to accepting a one-year deal with the Packers. Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says Raji is still weighing his options.
Insight: The one-year offer from Green Bay is reportedly worth $4 million. Raji wasn't much of a factor last season, recording just 17 tackles in 16 games. He's played his entire career with the Packers.

Description: Green Bay nose tackle B.J. Raji won't play Sunday night against Houston according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. He's still dealing with soreness in his left ankle.
Insight: La Canfora also said that tight end Jermichael Finley will be a gametime decision. Wide receiver Greg Jennings is also out so it should be an uphill battle for the Packers Sunday as they try to avoid beginning the year 2-4.

Description: Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji (ankle) "has a chance" to play in Week 6 against the Texans, according to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Insight: Raji was carted to the locker room after injuring his ankle and was limping around after the game. The big nose tackle was one of three high-profile Packers to go down in Week 5, including Jermichael Finley and Cedric Benson.
