Raji was a starter during the Packers’ Super Bowl run in 2011, and he was voted to a Pro Bowl in the season after. We all remember B.J. Raji’s touchdown in the NFC Championship.

Vonnie Holliday played 15 seasons in the NFL for six different teams. His first five years in the league were in Green Bay. He totaled 32 sacks, five forced fumbles, two interceptions and 82 tackles for loss.
Who Wears Packers’ Number 90 in 2023?
Currently, Lukas Van Ness wears the Green Bay Packers’ number 90. Van Ness was this season’s first-round pick out of Iowa. The versatile defensive lineman will be asked to play a lot of snaps for the Packers’ defense and serve a large role.
