2014 NFL Free Agency: Green Bay Packers sign Letroy Guion


 

With B.J. Raji hit the open market last week, it looked like the Green Bay Packers were going to have some huge issues along their defensive line.

Nearly a week later, it could be a position of strength.

Not only did the Packers re-sign Raji and sign defensive end Julius Peppers, but now they have added another defensive tackle, signing free agent Letroy Guion, according to his agent, Thomas Kleine.

 

Not only does the move fill a hole, but like Peppers with the Chicago Bears, it gives them a player who was released by an NFC North rival.

Guion was selected with the 152nd overall pick in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings and has spent all five of his professional seasons in Minnesota.

Last season, Guion made 21 tackles and had one sack.

The Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots were also reportedly interested in Guion.
