Green Bay defensive end B.J. Raji is likely to be let go by the Packers in an overhaul of their defensive structure. 

The NFC North team are looking to reorganise their defense, with Raji likely to feel the wrath of Packers front office. 

The Packers have $30 million in cap space, so there are plenty of options for their team ahead of the 2014 season. 

The most important move for the Packers as of this current situation is to reorganise their defense in a way that suits the philosophies of their defensive co-ordinator Tom Capers.

This could well mean the end of Raji, who it's understood would be surplus to requirements in Caper's re-imagining of what the Packers need.

The powerful defensive end will leave a lasting legacy at the Packers, with him playing a vital role in their NFC Championship Game win in 2011, as Green Bay went onto win the Super Bowl two weeks.  

With the Packers leading 14-7 in the penultimate game in 2011, Raji came up with an epic interception return for a touchdown, which sealed their route to the Super Bowl.

Raji will be forever remembered in Green Bay for that moment, and to see the footage again view the video above.
