The Green Bay Packers liked what they got from Letroy Guion so much that they’re willing to give the defensive tackle a second chance.
The Packers signed Guion to a one-year contract, a deal first reported by ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky.
Guion was arrested back in February on felony marijuana and firearm possession charges, but they were dismissed after he paid a $5,000.00 fine.
Guion could still face discipline from the National Football League. The NFL’s personal conduct policy doesn’t require a conviction for a penalty to be imposed.
The NFL Network also reported this morning that nose tackle B.J. Raji has agreed to a one-year deal with the Packers as well.
Raji is coming off of surgery for a torn biceps muscle that he suffered in a preseason game.
Both Guion and Raji will be highly motivated because they’ll be working immediately for their next contract. But there is a risk. For Guion, it’s a character risk. For Raji, it’s his ability to rebound from injury and be productive.
