The Packers made a big splash in free agency by signing defensive end Julius Peppers after years of facing him twice a season with the Bears.
On Monday, the Packers landed another defensive lineman with NFC North experience. It is not nearly quite as big a splash this time around.
Letroy Guion’s agent Thomas Kleine announced via Twitter that his client has signed in Green Bay. Guion visited with the Packers recently after making his first free agent visit to the Patriots.
Guion spent the last six years with the Vikings after he was a fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft and was a starter for the last two of those seasons. He recorded 52 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble over those years as a starter, but is likely to find himself in a reserve role now that he’s in Green Bay. The Packers recently re-signed B.J. Raji to go with Mike Daniels, Datone Jones, Josh Boyd and Jerel Worthy up front.
