The first week of OTA's are over for the Green Bay Packers, and perhaps no player is happier to be back on the field than B.J. Raji. The veteran defensive tackle missed all of last season with a biceps tear, but has been a full-go in practice so far, and told reporters he is back to 100 percent healthy. The rehab was rigorous, and the patience required is not to be discounted, but Raji has kept a positive outlook throughout it all.
"It was a great experience. I got to really soak up the atmosphere, I guess the event that gameday is particularly here at Green Bay," Raji said. "To observe all the little things, watching every aspect of the teams function together to win the division championships and obviously get all the way to the conference championship. It was special and it gave me a different appreciation for my experiences, past and present and future."
Raji said he doesn't want to just pick up where he left off, and thinks he has a lot to offer still.
Packers OTA's continue Tuesday with a practice open to the public beginning at 11:30 a.m.
