DL Guion re­leased

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BASEBALL/NFL -

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Pack­ers have re­leased de­fen­sive line­man Letroy Guion, end­ing a three-plus year ten­ure in Green Bay marked by off-field prob­lems.

Guion was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence in Hawaii in June. In an un­re­lated in­ci­dent, the NFL sus­pended him without pay for the first four games of the 2017 sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing a pol­icy on per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs.

It was the sec­ond dis­ci­plinary ac­tion against Guion in three sea­sons. The league sus­pended him for the first three games of the 2015 sea­son for vi­o­lat­ing its sub­stance abuse pol­icy.

Guion signed with the Pack­ers in 2014 af­ter spend­ing six sea­sons with NFC North ri­val Min­nesota. He started all 15 reg­u­lar-sea­son games and all three post­sea­son games last year for Green Bay.

Kenny Clark, last year’s first-round draft pick, al­ready was ex­pected to play an ex­panded role on the de­fen­sive line along­side Mike Daniels.
