Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion has reportedly agreed to a deferred prosecution agreement, with a result of probation, stemming from his arrest for felony marijuana and firearm possession last month.
ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky reported today that the deal will be signed in the next couple of weeks.
Guion will avoid serving any jail time but still could face discipline from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
The 27-year-old Guion was arrested Feb. 3, in his hometown of Starke, Florida. Police found 357 grams of marijuana and an unloaded 9mm semi-automatic handgun, which was registered to Guion in Minnesota. Police also seized more than $190,000 in cash from Guion’s pickup truck.
The Packers had been in contract talks about an extension prior to Guion’s arrest. Coach Mike McCarthy said the team was still open to bringing Guion back who was a productive player while starting every game for the Packers last season.
McCarthy said during a press conference after the season, “He was an impactful personality and played good football for us. I’m hopeful, if we get past this and the monitoring gives us the green light to go forward, I’d love to have Letroy back.”
