Letroy Guion Should Be Looking Over His Shoulder

I’m a Letroy fan, I like what he does and I like how he does it – nasty. He’s one of the underrated FA pickups that Ted has made in his tenure. A solid price-sensitive pickup that has paid dividends. Guion should get more credit than he does.

But come on dude, you’re gonna miss the first month of the season for a PED suspension and that’s not cool.

Now, the Packers restructured his deal after his last suspension, so it looks like they’re still interested, but that might just be insurance in case someone gets hurt before the final cutdown,s because this roster looks too competitive to keep a 12-game (tops) guy unless they feel really good about him.

Mike Daniels is the undisputed man in the D-line and Kenny Clark looks like he started to grow into the game at the end of last year. Dean Lowry picked up meaningful snaps towards the end of last year and then you have developmental youngsters like Christian Ringo and Brian Price, who have more years ahead of them than Letroy.

On top of that, the Packers brought in veteran Ricky Jean-Francois, who we love, and then drafted Senior Bowl dominator Montravius Adams in the third round of the draft.

Throw in an UDFA, and you got yourself eight guys with 16 games of eligibility to battle Letroy for a roster spot. All this on a team that usually only has two defensive lineman on the field at a time anyways.

Plus, Guion has shown that he is a much better nose tackle than defensive end and Kenny Clark was drafted for that role. Add it all up and it might be tough for the suspension-o-meter to hold on to his roster spot for another year.
