A B.J. Raji Return Isn’t Happening
At the end of the season, people started to wonder about if B.J. Raji could come back with Green Bay Packers. The former first-round draft pick still has a contract with Packers when Raji stepped away for personal reasons last year. There was nothing about how long he might be away from football, but Green Bay fans will have to wait another year. Raji announced today that there are no plans to return to Packers. It seems like the big man might be done with football. Here’s what Raji’s agent told ESPN’s Rob Demovsky
“When he made the decision it was to go home and take care of his family and be with them, and he’s still doing that,” Raji’s agent, Brian Murphy, told ESPN.com Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. “His family is his first priority. He hasn’t really thought about football.”
Raji is still dealing wit the same family issues per the article, and that’s what keeping him at his home in Florida. I said last year, it’s a really special thing that former Packers defensive tackle is doing for his family. There are not many people out there who are like The Freezer.
Hope his family gets on the road to recovery and a comeback is in B.J.’s future.
