The Green Bay Packers have finally come to the conclusion that most of us had come to months ago. Defensive tackle Letroy Guion is more trouble than he’s worth.
The Packers released Guion on Tuesday.
Guion’s list of infractions is a hearty one. He was busted for hauling a huge amount of marijuana around in Florida back in 2015. That resulted in a three-game suspension. Guion was busted for violating the NFL’s PED policy this year. He was scheduled to sit the first four games of the year for that one. Then, Guion got a DUI in Hawaii back in June. Surely, another suspension is on the way for that infraction.
The move is probably less about Guion at this point. It seems more about how the Packers feel about their defensive linemen.
Mike Daniels is Mike Daniels, but Dean Lowry, Kenny Clark and even Brian Price appear to have taken a big step forward. Throw in veteran Ricky Jean Francois and there’s your defensive line rotation.
It appears the Packers no longer really need Guion. They probably just brought him to camp as a precautionary measure, with the idea that they’d release him if others stepped up. Otherwise, why bring him to camp at all?
