Heading into this offseason, the general consensus was that Green Bay had two major players to extend: franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers and pass rusher Clay Matthews. That wasn't the perception a year earlier, however. Back then, most believed defensive lineman B.J. Raji also required an extension before the start of the 2013 regular season.

What a difference a year makes.

Last offseason, many believed that because Matthews and Raji had less time on their contracts, and were more severely underpaid, they would be the first to receive extensions with Rodgers' deal coming soon after. It didn't hurt that all three players were represented by the same agent.

As it turned out, Matthews and Rodgers signed extensions less than 10 days apart. Each now earns at or near top dollar for their respective positions. In contrast, Raji's contract situation doesn't appear to be close to a resolution. That hasn't worried the fifth-year defensive tackle, however.

In an interview with Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Raji made his feelings explicitly clear.

Green Bay gave me my first opportunity, my first shot at this thing. Obviously I've had a great run here. I love the people here. It's a great organization, it's a great city for football. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
