NT Raji’s goal: ‘Just cause havoc’

~The question was simple and B.J. Raji answered with a matter-of-fact tone that made the inquiry sound asinine — like the answer was common knowledge.
“What can you do if you get the regular job in the middle?” someone asked him after the Green Bay Packers’ organized team activity practice on Wednesday.
“What can I do?” Raji repeated. “Just cause havoc.”
That was the thought process when the Packers selected the former Boston College star with the No. 9 pick of the 2009 draft. Raji was considered an instant impact-type player, but a few factors slowed his production last season.
First, Raji missed two weeks of training camp while holding out. Then an ankle injury kept him out of action.
