4. B.J. Raji

No further explanation is needed for why the Packers could use B.J. Raji than the last game they played.

The Packers were ousted around by the 49ers offense to the tune of over 200 yards rushing and thoroughly dominated in the trenches.

At his peak, Raji was a mountain of a man who was hard to move at the point, could take on double teams and clear the way for linebackers to make plays.

After the 2015 season, Raji stated he was taking a hiatus to help his family. He said it wasn’t a retirement but he just needed to put family first. Two years later, Raji restated his desire to put his family first and had no intention of returning to the Packers. But, if he chose to, now would be a great time.

I’m not sure what type of shape Raji could be in now, he has kept a low profile since walking away. But, at the age of 33, Raji could still have some miles left on his body. Especially after a four-year hiatus.

If he doesn’t I can sure understand the need to be there to help take care of his family, but in this hypothetical world, Raji could be a good fit for the 2020 Packers.
