Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion is going to miss the first quarter of the 2017 season.

Guion has been suspended four games by the NFL for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Guion will be eligible to practice with the Packers this offseason, take part in training camp and play in the preseason, but won’t be eligible to take part in team activities once the regular season gets underway.

Guion previously served a three-game suspension in 2015 after an offseason arrest on marijuana and gun charges.

Guion had 30 tackles while making 15 regular season starts for the Packers last year. It was his third seasn with the club and he’s set to have a salary cap charge of just over $3.6 million in the coming season.

  1. Note to other Vikings fans: let’s be respectful and show a little class. A Packer has been suspended and we don’t need to comment.

    Just kidding. It looks like Leroy got into Clay’s stash.

    Performance ENHANCING? Man, I’d hate to see what the Packers D would look like if he Peppers and Mathroids were playing clean

  2. Several reports of domestic abuse; busted in FLA with large quantities of pot, cash and a gun; admitted to regularly getting high with his dad; and, now a PED suspension. I suspect he will soon be known as a former Packer, but still wonder if the fans that trash the Vikings and their fans for AP’s misdeeds will condemn Guion and the Packers with the same enthusiasm.

  3. He probably thinks he’s still in MN. Plays like it too. Serious question here: is there any avenue for a team to release a player like this with multiple suspensions who’s still under contract while not penalizing the team for a cap hit?? If not, there should be – for the benefit of ANY NFL team.

    Nah…. we don’t love Guion nearly as much as you guys love the child beater.

  5. Only Packers fans would blame another team’s fan base for a player who left FOUR YEARS AGO!!

    Good Lord!
    Take some responsibility for ONCE, Packers fans!

    The fact that you continue to try and justify the behavior of Purple Jesus makes you every bit as fine a man as he is.

  7. I think Letroy Guion, Clay Matthews, and Julius Peppers should be suspended. You shouldn’t be allowed to be that good.

    After all, Guion did come to us from Minnesota. What would you expect?

    ———————————————————————

    He is a former Viking, and Florida State Seminole, but he wasn’t getting suspended until he was on the Packers, so I don’t know what you are even talking about.

  9. didnt he get busted with a loaded handgun and 300thousand dollars in cash last offseason?… weird cuz he never had any arrests while playing for the vikings. more structure in the twin cities by the looks of it

  10. The guy’s trying to make a living by hook or crook. I don’t care for cheating, but that’s a concept rendered quaint by many NFL teams and coaches (blind eye, filming practices…of the other team, etc.).

    I’m certain that the tough guys commenting with gusto on this page would do the exact same thing under the same circumstance.

    Or does selling appliances at Sears pay as well?

  11. This is exactly what Green Bay deserves for picking through Minnesota’s trash.
    You associate with garbage, you get dirty.
    Hopefully Ted Thompson learns from this obvious mistake.

    A few things I know for sure, Guion won’t be able to coerce management into a guaranteed raise after all this and Packer fans won’t be screaming for him to come back and play angry.
    As if he was some kind of victim in all this.

    Yes, I’m talking about you, Barney fans!
    skoLOL!!!

    Future viking, as spielman loves packer rejects
    _____________________

    So he is going back to the future? He is already a former Viking, way to keep up.

  13. This is the guy the Packers could not wait to get their hands on after the Vikings cut him. Reminds me of the time the Packers picked up Koren Robinson after the Vikings cut him despite him facing a year suspension.

  14. Get rid of him….NOW! None of these overpaid and coddled jocks should be given a second chance.

  15. A class man from the Vikings retired today….

    Another unclassy Packer player gets caught for cheating….

    The difference between the Vikings and our little sisters to the east….

    Wait, you’re forgetting about all the wins and Championships.
    That…..that right there might be another difference.

  17. At what point are the packers, as an organization, punished? They consistently have guys losing playing time to PED abuse. It’s complete BS. #cheaters

    I strongly condemn Guion and hope they cut him. As a former Viking player, I always looked at him as a plug-in until they could get someone better(cheap Viking shot). On the field he has had some moments, but not enough to keep him around with his off the field moments. I don’t think pot should be a crime but he has too much baggage in general.

    If they Packers were supplying players with PEDs then you could punish them. Players doing things on their own is not controllable. Cheaters…Really? #ridiculous
