Packers Notes: Raji, Peppers, Pickett

The latest out of Green Bay..

  • Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji spoke to reporters, including Pete Doughterty of the Press Gazzette, about his disappointment in being unable to find a multiyear deal this offseason. Raji looked around but ultimately came back to Green Bay on a one-year deal.
  • Julius Peppers hasn’t played a snap yet for the Packers but he’s already impressing teammates in Green Bay, writes Lori Nickel of the Journal Sentinel. “You obviously notice his athletic ability right off the bat,” said Hawk. “He’s 34 and runs like he’s 18. If ever there was a genetic freak put on this planet, it is Julius. He’s just a specimen. I have a ton of respect for how he works, too. What a great teammate just from Day 1. He’s a quiet guy that already knows what he is doing, so it is fun to be around a guy like him.”
  • Free agent nose tackle Ryan Pickett told SiriusXM NFL Radio (Twitter link) that he’d love to return to the Packers if the opportunity presents itself. A late April report indicated that the Packers were in a holding pattern when it came to Pickett.
