The Green Bay Packers are set to bring back defensive tackle Letroy Guion on a one-year contract, and it has been announced that they will do the same for fellow defensive tackle B.J. Raji.

Raji missed the entire 2014 season with a torn bicep injury, so Guion became their full-time starting defensive tackle.
The Packers are signing Raji to another one-year “prove it” deal after giving him a $4 million contract last offseason.
They are still hoping to see the defensive tackle regain his 2010 form, which helped the Packers defense guide the team to a Super Bowl victory.
Raji registered a career-high 6.5 sacks in that season, but he has been unable to provide a reliable pass rush since then and struggled as a defensive end.
The Packers planned to move him to back to defensive tackle before his injury, and he will return there and rotate with Guion.
However, he may be required to carry the load if Guion is suspended for his arrest for firearm and marijuana possession.
