    The status of the contract negotiations between the Green Bay Packers and first-round draft pick DT B.J. Raji got more cloudy earlier tonight. Witnesses at Austin Straubel International Airport saw Raji boarding a plane out of Green Bay at around 6 p.m. An employee confirmed to the Journal Sentinel that a "Busari Raji" Raji's given name checked in for a flight to Chicago.

    If you read the full article, the wierd thing is he took a flight to go to Chicago. What would he do in chicago.

    I don't know man, this isn't good...whether Raji is right or wrong this is another offseason issue for GreenBay ownership bringing the bad press. Last year the Favre issue, and this year they can't get their 1st round pick signed...I'm curious what type of deal they're offering. Oakland overpaying DHB at 7 could also be screwing GB right now.

    DHB plus Crabtree trying to get paid like the top pick is messing the pay scale all up. Everyone else is just trying to see where they get slotted. I hope this puts it over the edge and they institute a rookie cap for the next CBA.

    I think you hit the nail on the head Steve. These players are highlighting the glaring need for a rookie pay scale.

    What the hell is going on this year with those young freaking boneheads?

    Maybe it was just to get his connection.

    honestly if i had to pick 3 holdouts before any picks signed i would have said crabtree, andre smith and bj raji

    Ofcourse you would find a way to bring Oakland into this thread. We should be blamed for all things. I mean its not these guys or their agents faults its just Oakland.

    Hasn't signed that contract yet. Probably had to fly Southwest. They'll connect you to St. Louis on a flight from DC to Boston.

    If his last name was Harrel he would have been signed already! TT is a bonehead.

    Umm Oakland over paying for a player that should have gone later is screwing things up, hardly blaming your team for ALL things. B.J., where ya going man you have a contract to sign...
