There are a number of needs along the defensive line for the Green Bay Packers. With Ryan Pickett a free agent, one of these needs is is at nose tackle.
While bringing back Pickett doesn't seem likely due to his age (he'll be 35 during the 2014 season), the Packers could look to re-sign another free agent to fill this need. That player would be none other than B.J. Raji.
Yes, Raji is coming off an absolutely dismal season for the Packers. However, that was at defensive end, a position that isn't natural for a player of Raji's size. Moving him back to nose tackle would allow him to play a position he is better suited for where he could have more of an impact than he did last year.
Now, the Packers have already offered Raji a deal, but it appears that he won't accept it, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. That means the Packer either need to offer more money or wait to see what the market truly is for a player like Raji.
If they can't find another option at nose tackle or they aren't convinced that drafting a nose tackle is the way to go, look for them to continue to pursue Raji to fill that need for the foreseeable future.
