The Green Bay Packers have signed nose tackle B.J. Raji. The signing was announced Friday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Raji will be placed on the active non-football injury list.
The No. 9 overall selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, Raji was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection in 2008, leading Boston College in sacks (eight) and anchoring a run defense that ranked No. 7 nationally. Nearly one-third (32.5 of 105) of his tackles in college were behind the line of scrimmage.
The team also announced it placed rookie wide receiver Patrick Williams on injured reserve.
