The Green Bay Packers have signed first round draft pick B.J. Raji to a five-year contract according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The MJS estimates the contract is worth $28.5 million, and just under $18 million in guaranteed money.

Raji returned to Green Bay Friday to sign his contract, but will most likely not play in the preseason game against Cleveland Saturday.

Raji said he should be ready for the preseason home game Aug. 22 against Buffalo.

"I am in good shape," Raji said. "I have to show them I am in football shape."
