The Green Bay Packers announced that they’ve have released veteran DT Letroy Guion on Tuesday.
Guion has had numerous off-the-field issues since joining the Packers for the 2015 season, so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that they’re moving on from him.
Green Bay has some younger defensive linemen that should be able to replace Guion moving forward.
Guion, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2008. After six years in Minnesota, he signed a three-year, $11.25 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $1.7 million for the 2017 season when he agreed to a restructured contract this past March.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Guion will free up $3.45 million of available cap space while creating $166,666 in dead money.
In 2016, Guion appeared in 15 games for the Packers and recorded 30 total tackles and one pass defense. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 63 interior defender out of 127 qualifying players.
