It was early to mid-season (2010) when Cullen Jenkins voiced his displeasure about the lack of communication from the Packers regarding his contract. "It's almost like maybe a slap in the face. I'm not the type of player that causes a big scene or goes out and displays his unhappiness. You just kind of feel like you're not in the plans, like they just don't see you as a valuable enough player." said Jenkins. Jenkins, who was coming off his first 16 game starting season from the 2009 season knew that at age 29 this was his best chance for a big payday and the Packers weren't even talking to him about a contract.

It should be noted that Jenkins only played in four games during the 2008 season and was set to be 30 years old during the 2011 season. Past injuries and his age, plus the Packers investment of a 2nd round pick in Mike Neal were reasons for the Packers to be patient and let the market set the price tag. This is a common practice by the Packers and often times it rubs players the wrong way.

The Packers actually countered the Eagles offer but Jenkins mind was made in October that he was not returning for only a few extra bucks in the bank. Uncharacteristically, he would later play into the fans ire by saying he was going to give the Packers a hometown discount.

Going forward a few years to the off-season before the 2013 season and we have a 29 year old Greg Jennings coming off an abbreviated season targeting $12 million per season. Per Jason Wilde, the Packers offered Jennings about $10 million a year during the season. Jennings left with a bitter taste in his mouth as he referred to Aaron Rodgers as "the guy they have now" and "12" and also saying the Packers "brainwash" their players into thinking the Packers are the creme of the NFC North division. Ultimately, Jennings signed a five year deal for $47.5 million, or $9.5 million per year with the Minnesota Vikings.

These quotes from Jennings at his charity golf outing are very telling. "The way I exited Green Bay was very unprofessional," Jennings said. "But I don't feel any of that here. I felt more of a disrespect from Green Bay, honestly. It was more dealing with myself -- it was, 'Man, I really wanted to stay in Green Bay.' I really wanted to stay here [in Minnesota], but I've grown so much in my faith, to where I recognize where God is moving and making change.

"It just was really something I was dealing with myself. I had to recognize that I had a level of pride to where I felt like, 'Wow, I went through all of this.' It was almost a sense of entitlement, like, 'Wow, I dedicated my entire career, and [there's] no fight, no want?' It's almost like you disowned your child. But that's what I was feeling -- and again, selfishly. Bottom line, I was hurt, because I did want to stay. But I wasn't willingly embracing change at that moment. It's unfortunate, but I've been very apologetic to them personally. I don't have a lot of things where I wish it wouldn't have happened. I definitely wish I would have handled that better."

Both Jenkins and Jennings felt the Packers disrespected them and handled things unprofessionally. The theme here is (and stop me if you've heard this before, e.g. 2008) the team did not communicate their desire to retain the player.

We can expect a big season out of B.J. Raji for several reasons. The number one reason is he will be back at the position he feels most comfortable playing, Nose Tackle. Sorry Clay, you won't be playing Nose Guard after all. Raji was having his best training camp last year when he got injured. He's playing this season on a similar contract, conceptually anyhow. The contract is another one year prove-it deal.

Raji showed how good of a teammate he is when he stayed local during the entire season while on injured reserve. This says quite a bit about his character and dedication. Detractors will say he was only around to heighten his chances of getting a Super Bowl ring while on injured reserve. He would have regardless.

LeTroy Guion will surely miss two or four games and during this time, Raji will tear it up hoping to keep his snaps when Guion returns. When Guion returns, he's going to have that much less wear and tear so it'll just make both Guion and Raji better for the long season while the Packers run wild over the NFL en route to #5.

Clay Matthews made it clear he is excited about the return of the Raji. "He's able to stop the run and be a big guy up front who you customarily see in a 3-4 defense, yet, at the same time, he's able to rush the passer. We'll see what that translates to this year as far his presence. It's always great to have a player of his caliber back on the field." said Matthews.

With Raji saying "When I leave here, I want to leave on a great note, and on a great season, not being injured and missing the year. I don't want to leave this great place with that kind of taste." fans can be excited knowing he's going to produce this year and if not, he's already conceded he is leaving.

As I've maintained throughout the history PackersHome, the site is 100% what YOU the fans make it. If you doubt that, ask yourself how great this place would be if it was me talking to myself? Smile
