"The Green Bay Packers signed the veteran defensive tackle to a three-year, $11.25 million contract, multiple sources told ESPN on Friday. He could also earn an additional $500,000 in incentives." Demovsky
That's some good dough for the 28-year-old, 6'4", 302 pound big boy on the D-line. He's not the big boy on the Packers D-line--that's B.J. Raji--but it looks like he might now in fact be the big boy if Green Bay doesn't bring back Raji, which it looks like they won't. Guion's a good player and Mike and Ted really like him. It's exciting getting him back knowing that Dom Capers and a lot of our other defensive guys are coming back next year, too. Letroy's a strong, consistent player and also another boost of confidence for the defensive front that's also returning the stud Mike Daniels. Lots of gold getting dished out by the Green and Gold this offseason. It's good to see for keeping the chances alive. I think Guion's worth it:
Christian Ponder! Long time no see.
Speaking of the Vikings, that's where Letroy played before Green Bay. The Packers notoriously don't do much in free agency, but they're actually kind of sneaky good at grabbing up talent from elsewhere in the NFC North. Julius Peppers is obviously the best example of that. If they go after Matt Forte, which is a bit of a stretch but also not too much of a stretch, it's going to be veeerrrryyyyyy interesting in Green Bay and the entire NFC this year...
Hopefully $11.25 million is enough to keep Letroy Guion happy, playing hard, and away from some of his other interests:
In case you were curious that's 357 grams, $190K CASH, and a 9mm (Wiki). What's up with the plastic cup, coins, and seven singles?
Florida is sure one weird and wild place. Snakes, bath salts, election recounts, and football stars.
