Guion signed a three-year extension with the Packers on Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Guion's three year extension could see him make up to $11.75 million and will keep him in green and gold until he is 31. The Packers have now locked up long-term deals with Guion and fellow defensive tackle Mike Daniels. This could be an indication that B.J. Raji, who is slated to become a free agent next month, is on his way out of Green Bay. Guion has four sacks and 65 tackles in his two seasons with the Packers.
The Packers reinstated defensive end Datone Jones from the suspended list Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jones will be eligible to play in Week 2 after sitting out the Packers' season opener while serving a one-game suspension. He will likely be a reserve when Letroy Guion returns from a suspension of his own, but with Guion out another two weeks, Jones could get a chance to start.
Packers defensive lineman Letroy Guion has been suspended for the first three games of the 2015 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, the NFL announced Thursday. He will miss games against the Bears, Seahawks and Chiefs, and he is eligible to return Week 4 against the 49ers.
Despite question marks regarding defensive tackle B.J. Raji (biceps injury) and defensive tackle Letroy Guion (legal issues) heading into 2015, the Packers may be very fortunate to have retained those players and not have to rebuild their defensive line, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That's very big. You have two veteran guys, two bigger guys and two productive football players," Packers defensive end Mike Daniels said. "You have two veteran guys, two bigger guys and two productive football players. They're both really good football players and they're great guys." Raji missed the 2014 season due to a torn right biceps and Guion had a recent run-in with police.
Defensive tackle Letroy Guion got a head start on Packers' OTAs. After re-signing with the team at the end of March, Guion reported to Green Bay and has been working out at the team's facility ever since, according to a report by ESPN.
