Well, so much for the Green Bay Packers and their imminent deal with defensive tackle Letroy Guion.
After reaching a plea deal that clears him of any criminal charges in his felony drug case at the beginning of the week, Guion visited the Seattle Seahawks at the end of the week.
He was in Seattle on Friday.
Because despite saying they want Guion back, the Green Bay Packers’ brass obviously has zero urgency to do anything other than sit around with their heads up their asses.
Guion says he’s still hopeful the Packers will step forward with a deal and so are we. Frankly, we have no idea what the hell the holdup is.
The Packers don’t have a capable nose tackle on the roster at the moment. B.J. Raji is also a free agent. Why not sign both of these guys and be done with that position for 2015 already?
No, we’ll just wait around until some other team comes along and signs both of these guys, so we can create another hole on our defense to go along with the ones at cornerback and inside linebacker. And then we can draft someone to fill the hole who will round into form three years from now when our Super Bowl window is much smaller than it is today.
But what about NFL discipline, you say?
Yes, it’s true. The Ginger Hammer will surely be handing Guion some completely arbitrary penalty for getting caught with a giant bag of weed in his car. That penalty will probably cost Guion at least a couple games.
That doesn’t matter in terms of Guion’s contract though. If he’s suspended, he’ll be suspended without pay, so the Packers don’t lose anything except a body for those games.
Get it done already, Ted!
