07:05 AM ET 05.29 | With Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews locked up, B.J. Raji may set up as the next Packers player to sign a deal. The Packers' defensive lineman is entering the final season of his five-year rookie contract with the team. He's one of five individuals at the position with no guarantees past 2013, along with 33-year-old Ryan Pickett and 2010 second-round pick Mike Neal. ... Whatever the case may be, Raji isn't concerned. While he wouldn't comment on specifics, Raji is confident his side and the Packers will find common ground on a possible extension. "I'm not really going to talk contracts," Raji said. "Obviously, the Packers are a great organization and I'm sure they'll do right by me. I'll leave it at that."

Look it up. He's the heaviest guy to ever score a touchdown in the NFL.

Packers are notorious for last minute deals, possibly to make sure he makes it through this year healthy.

Exactly. If he gets injured or plays at a lower level, then he will see just how much any team takes care of any player. T'is a business.

The Fridge was listed at 335 when he scored. Raji was listed at 337.

Sadly, William Perry is now over 400 pounds and admits to a drinking problem. He's become a "beer fridge" like the one in my basement.

Yeah, really. One of the more colorful figures from a great era for Da Bears. He's only 50. I hope he gets some help.

Green Bay's idea of "taking care of Raji" and Raji's idea of "taking care of Raji" might not be the same thing.
