A look at the Packers' defensive free agents

By Rob Demovsky

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- At least two of the Green Bay Packers’ upcoming free agents on defense will be looking for blockbuster contracts.

The Packers were unable to complete contract extensions during the season for either defensive tackle B.J. Raji or cornerback Sam Shields during the season.

According to a mid-season report by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Raji turned down an offer that averaged $8 million per year.

Indications were that the Packers went deep into negotiations with Shields, who avoided a major injury scare against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday when he left with a left knee injury that turned out to be only a bone bruise.

Here's the list of free-agents-to-be on defense (the offensive list was posted earlier):
