Last week, the Minnesota Vikings, in an effort to begin to clear cap room to pursue other targets in free agency, released veteran defensive tackle Letroy Guion.
Guion is far from a superstar, but he has played a lot of meaningful snaps in the league and could provide valuable depth.
According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, several teams are interested in Guion.

Guion was selected with the 152nd overall pick in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Vikings. The former Florida State Seminole had a rough first season, making just one tackle in seven games, but entered the rotation in his second season.
In 2013, Guion appeared in 13 games, making 21 tackles and 1.0 sacks. Over his career, he has 90 tackles, 5.0 sacks and two forced fumbles.
The Packers likely won’t hang on to B.J. Raji and Vince Wilfork has asked the Patriots for his release, so those are two logical destinations.
