According to ESPN Milwaukee’s Jason Wilde, Green Bay Packers nose tackle Letroy Guion was arrested last night in Starke, Fla on felony charges of marijuana and firearm possession.
Guion is set to become a free agent in March, and if the Packers choose not to re-sign him because of this it will lead a big void at nose tackle. Guion was injured most of training camp, but made the most of his opportunity when called upon to replace the injured B.J Raji, who was out for the season after tearing his biceps muscle. Guion finished the season with 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks. According to Bob McGinn’s count, he led the team in tackles per snap (one every 8.4) and fourth in pressures per snap (one every 38.9).
Guion is the first Packers player to get arrested since Erik Walden in 2011.
“We are aware of a serious matter involving Letroy Guion. We have not yet spoken to Letroy and we will have no further comment,”the Packers said in a statement.
