Green Bay Packers DT Letroy Guion signs three-year, $11.25M deal

The Green Bay Packers re-signed veteran defensive tackles Letroy Guion to a three-year, $11.25 million contract, with $500,000 in escalators, NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday.

However, off-field issues triggered on-field complications, and Guion played the 2015 season on a one-year deal worth $2.75 million and only $400,000 in guaranteed money. He played in 13 games during the 2015 season after serving a three-game suspension to start the year. He returned to become a key member of a line rotation on the Packers' solid defense. In two seasons with the Packers, he has compiled 53 tackles and 3.5 sacks.

The Packers also re-signed defensive lineman Mike Daniels late in the season to a contract extension. He played in all remaining regular-season games and both playoff games.

Raji was expected to be the priority this offseason, and it's unknown if Guion's new deal will affect Raji's chances of signing a contract to stay in Green Bay. Raji had 22 tackles and anchored the middle of the Packers' run defense.

Though it took him several weeks to round into form, Guion finished the year on a high note and turned in some of his best performances over the final two months.
